Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0397515189, Hardcover)

Written by 126 leading international experts, this volume is a comprehensive text and reference on the surgical treatment of gastrointestinal malignancies. The book emphasizes a multidisciplinary approach to these cancers and explores the full range of current treatment options, including operative techniques, adjuvant therapies, and combined modality treatment. The opening section provides an overview of the biology of gastrointestinal cancer and the latest strategies for diagnosis, treatment, and follow-up, including tumor markers, imaging, endoscopy, and laparoscopy. Subsequent sections focus on diagnosis, staging, and curative and palliative treatment of esophageal cancer; gastric cancer; pancreatic cancer; cancer of the liver, bile duct, and gallbladder; and cancer of the colon and rectum. Each section features detailed, profusely illustrated descriptions of the most successful surgical techniques and discussions of the rationale, perioperative complications, and long-term results of each procedure. Full consideration is given to radiation therapy, chemotherapy, and multimodality treatment where appropriate
