ESOPEC Prospective Randomized Controlled Multicenter Phase III Trial Comparing Perioperative Chemotherapy FLOT Protocol to Neoadjuvant Chemoradiation CROSS Protocol in Patients with Adenocarcinoma of the Esophagus NCT02509286 Excerpt :

Recent randomized controlled trials comparing neoadjuvant chemoradiation plus surgery or perioperative chemotherapy plus surgery with surgery alone showed significant survival benefits for combined modality treatment of patients with localized esophageal adenocarcinoma. However, head-to-head comparisons of neoadjuvant chemoradiation and perioperative chemotherapy applying contemporary treatment protocols are lacking. The present trial was initiated to obtain valid information whether neoadjuvant chemoradiation or perioperative chemotherapy yields better survival in the treatment of localized esophageal adenocarcinoma. Proceeds from the sale of this book go to support an elderly disabled person.

Surgical Management of Hepatobiliary and Pancreatic Disorders Excerpt :

Hepato-pancreato-biliary (HPB) surgery is now firmly established within the repertoire of modern general surgery. Indeed, in many major centers, there are now specific teams for both pancreatic and liver surgery. However, in most hospitals outside these major centers, the day-to-day management and decision-making for patients with these disorders remains the remit of the general surgeon and presents often highly complex clinical scenarios. Surgical Management of Hepatobiliary and Pancreatic Disorders is a detailed guide to management in problems arising from cancer, trauma, cysts and other conditions, both acute and chronic. It is intended to cover the spectrum of common HPB diseases that will confront the general surgeon in his or her regular practice. The chapters are problem-based, rather than didactic descriptions of pathology and surgical technique. It is sufficiently comprehensive to cover the broad spectrum of HPB surgery for candidates coming to examinations at the completion of surgical training and will act as a comprehensive reference tool for surgeons in practice and in training.

Laparo endoscopic Hernia Surgery Excerpt :

This book is distinctive in that it focuses exclusively on current laparoscopic and endoscopic techniques for inguinal, primary and incisional abdominal wall, and hiatal hernias. Individual steps in diagnosis and treatment are described by experts in the field, but this clinical expertise is also integrated with the best available external evidence from systematic research as encapsulated in statements, recommendations, and guidelines. The reader will thus not only learn how to perform techniques systematically and reproducibly but also come to understand which of the procedures have been scientifically validated by studies, reviews, and meta-analyses and which have simply developed empirically. The descriptions of technique are supplemented by detailed guidance on such aspects as indications, anesthesia, aftercare and pain management, and the prevention and management of complications. Where appropriate, careful comparisons are made of competing repair options, including open techniques. In summary, this book will help practicing surgeons to standardize their operative technique so as to reflect current scientific knowledge and thereby improve the quality of laparoscopic/endoscopic hernia surgery.

This book presents the views of leading European experts on the diagnosis and management of testicular cancer, with coverage of current hot topics in the field. It opens by providing an overview of the recommendations in the most recent consensus paper from the European Germ Cell Cancer Consensus Group, which is based on interdisciplinary cooperation among urologists, medical oncologists, radio-oncologists, pathologists, and basic scientists. The remainder of the book focuses on areas of controversy in the diagnosis, treatment, and follow-up of testicular cancer. In each case the evidence base is discussed and results from the most recent studies are reviewed, drawing attention to new findings that might alter treatment recommendations. The treatment-related chapters cover a broad range of issues, including the best approach in patients with poor-prognosis and recurrent disease and those with long-term toxicities. Relevant aspects of survivorship care are also addressed. The book will help clinicians and practitioners to achieve the goals of minimizing therapy and its side-effects without reducing efficacy in low stage disease, improving the cure rate in advanced disease, and enhancing follow-up and long-term survivorship.
