Atlas of Lymphoscintigraphy and Sentinel Node Mapping Book Description :

Although lymphoscintigraphy was originally introduced into clinical routine for identification of the cause of peripheral edema, more recently it has been widely applied for radioguided biopsy of the sentinel lymph node in patients with solid cancers. The procedure is now considered crucial for adequate planning of oncologic surgery in a growing number of cancers. This atlas presents a collection of richly illustrated teaching cases that demonstrate the clinical relevance and impact of lymphoscintigraphy in different pathologic conditions. After introductory chapters on the anatomy, physiology, and pathophysiology of lymphatic circulation, the role of lymphoscintigraphy in differential diagnosis of peripheral edema and characterization of intracavitary lymph effusions is addressed. The principal focus of the book, however, is on the use of lymphoscintigraphic mapping for radioguided sentinel node biopsy in cutaneous melanoma and cancers at a range of anatomic sites. The most commonly observed lymphoscintigraphic patterns are depicted, and anatomic variants and technical pitfalls of the procedure receive careful attention. The role of tomographic multimodality imaging is also considered. The atlas will be an excellent learning tool for residents in nuclear medicine and other specialists with an interest in the field.

From Local Invasion to Metastatic Cancer Book Description :

In human solid tumors, nodal status is the most important prognostic indicator for patient outcome. Recent developments in the sentinel lymph node concept have resulted in new procedures to define the first draining node as the primary gateway through which the cancer will spread. In From Local Invasion to Metastatic Cancer: Involvement of Distant Sites Through the Lymphovascular System, a panel of international authorities takes an in-depth look at the role of the lymphovascular system in the spread of cancer. The authors summarize the findings of the Second International Symposium on Cancer Metastasis: Basis for Rational Therapy summit. Specifically, the book presents important developments in the biology and clinical understanding of cancer metastasis, describes the relationship between tumor microenvironment and proliferation, and defines the process of lymphangiogenesis and angiogenesis with special reference to cancer metastasis. From Local Invasion to Metastatic Cancer: Involvement of Distant Sites Through the Lymphovascular System provides oncologists, radiologists, and cancer researchers the necessary information to study and develop new strategies to curb the process of metastasis.

Lymph Node Pathology for Clinicians Book Description :

Lymph node pathology is a complex and rapidly evolving field that requires integration of morphologic findings with a number of ancillary studies, as well as clinical information, to diagnose neoplastic and non-neoplastic hematopoietic disorders. Lymphomas are currently classified according to the 2016 Revision of the World Health Organization (WHO) Classification, which emphasizes, and for some diagnoses mandates, the integration of clinical information in diagnostic decision making. Successful collaboration and teamwork between pathology and clinical specialties (especially hematology/oncology) are paramount for excellent patient care. In addition to diagnosis, pathology plays a significant role in lymphoma prognostication and therefore contributes to patient’s management and follow-up. Lymph Node Pathology for Clinicians provides a concise overview of different entities in lymph node pathology with the primary audience being clinicians. Not all entities are covered, but, rather, the most common and/or clinically most relevant ones were included. This text is intended as a quick reference for a clinician to become familiar with pathologic aspects of lymphomas and the thought process of a pathologist. Particular consideration is given to relevant diagnostic and prognostic ancillary studies. Organized with an interdisciplinary approach for effective management of lymph node disorders, this text aims to educate our clinical colleagues on the most important aspects of lymph node pathology.

Controversies in Surgery Book Description :

"When a thing ceases to be a subject of controversy, it ceases to be a subject of interest. " WILLIAM HAZLITT (1778-1830) This is the fourth volume in a series which we started in 1997. In 1976, Varco and Delaney edited a "surgical bestseller" entitled Controversy in Surgery. This was fol lowed by a second volume in 1985. The immense success of these books among both surgical trainees and experienced surgeons, and their wide international ap peal, supported the editors' notion that a view of controversy is integral to teach ing. However, despite major advances in surgical science and practice, no other similar publication has since been put together with the objective of addressing major controversies in surgery. The aim of this series is to address such deficiency by covering the most crucial current controversies in general, vascular and trauma surgery. Since almost everything is controversial in surgery, we will be able to tackle different issues almost each year. The editors have selected a nationally/internationally recognized authority for each topic. Most books available today are either "North American:' "British-Com monwealth" or "British-European:' contributing to the constant transatlantic rival ry. Our series specifically aims to bridge this "culture gap" and includes North American, British, European, and other authors while maintaining a cohesive structure. This will hopefully also broaden the appeal of such a book across both sides of the Atlantic and beyond.

Nuclear Medicine Textbook Book Description :

Building on the traditional concept of nuclear medicine, this textbook presents cutting-edge concepts of hybrid imaging and discusses the close interactions between nuclear medicine and other clinical specialties, in order to achieve the best possible outcomes for patients. Today the diagnostic applications of nuclear medicine are no longer stand-alone procedures, separate from other diagnostic imaging modalities. This is especially true for hybrid imaging guided interventional radiology or surgical procedures. Accordingly, today’s nuclear medicine specialists are actually specialists in multimodality imaging (in addition to their expertise in the diagnostic and therapeutic uses of radionuclides). This new role requires a new core curriculum for training nuclear medicine specialists. This textbook is designed to meet these new educational needs, and to prepare nuclear physicians and technologists for careers in this exciting specialty.

Lymphatic Metastasis and Sentinel Lymphonodectomy Book Description :

Metastases determine malignancy. The main attention so far has been focused upon organ metastases. The molecular mechanisms thereof, while far from being totally elucidated, are increasingly well understood. Modern diagnostic tools now enable detection and precise localization of small lesions. In contrast, our knowl edge and diagnostic capabilities regarding metastatic spread to the'lymphatic system are rather limited. However, there have re cently been a number of interesting advances. It is the aim of this volume to submit these developments to detailed analysis. The therapeutic relevance of enhanced sensitivity in detection of lymph node metastases has to be considered in the light of in creased morbidity versus eventual prognostic improvements by modification of therapy. An interesting concept which might im prove diagnostic accuracy while reducing operative morbidity is the "sentinel node" technique. Surgical standards are lacking, however, and many fundamental questions pertaining to precise lymphatic mapping remain unanswered. Whether the sentinel node concept is of general relevance or whether it is applicable in only a few organs remains to be determined. This book offers intensive discussion of the concept from methodological and tu mor biological viewpoints. World-renowned experts with long term involvement in related basic and clinical research provide the reader with a broad survey of actual knowledge together with a critical appraisal of recent and future developments. We sincerely hope this book succeeds in providing an outlook as a reference for all clinicians on future prospects and serving and researchers in this extremely important field.

Three Types of Sentinel Lymph Nodes and Three Routes of Lymph Drainage for Endometrial Cancer Book Description :

Introduction. Identification of sentinel lymph node (SLN) is an alternative procedure that allows to individualize surgical staging of lymph nodes (LN). Methodology: prospective non-randomized trial was performed to investigate the peculiarities of SLN mapping for endometrial cancer with the usage of methylene blue dye. Results. All cases of SLN mapping (n=89) were analysed according to the spread of contrast by lymphatic pathways and peculiarities of SLN. In all cases at least one lymph-drainage pathway was identified, both-sided pathways were identified in 78 cases (83,9%), right- an left-sided u2013 in 86 (92,5%) and 85 (91,4%) cases respectively. Infundibulo-pelvic pathway was identified in 17 patients (18,3%), upper and lower paracervical pathway in 67 (72%) and 37 (39,4%) cases respectively. It was mentioned that there are three types of SLN. Type I (u201cclassicalu201d SLN) u2013 contrasted afferent lymph vessel and LN. Type II u2013 contrasted afferent lymph vessel that lead to LN which is either not contrasted (contrast breaks off at the confluence) or contain dot blotches of blue dye (u201cmarbleu201d SLN). Type III u2013 any suspicious LN. All of aforementioned lymph nodes require a biopsy. Pelvic LN dissection (referent method) were completed in 41 cases (46%), among them type I SLN was in 24 cases (58,5%), type u0406u0406 u2013 in 3 (7,3%), type u0406u0406u0406 u2013 in 11 (26,8%), SLN was not identified in 3 patients (7,3%). LN metastases were verified in 10 patients (10,8%). Five cases of type I SLN (20,8%) had LN metastases. All three cases of type II SLN were metastatic. Two cases of type III SLN (18,2%) contain LN metastases. Conclusion. Usage of the concept of three types of SLN and three routs of lymph drainage may be a perspective method for improvement of endometrial cancer treatment results. Further studies with larger number of patients are needed to prove this hypothesis. Disclosures: none.
