Carcinoma of the Esophagus [Contemporary Issues in Cancer
About this product
Esophageal cancer is a relatively uncommon but highly lethal malignancy. The incidence of adenocarcinoma is rapidly increasing and improved survival will depend on prevention, earlier diagnosis, improved staging and appropriate treatment. The multidisciplinary team approach toward patient care is critical in determining the management of patients with esophageal cancer. This volume provides a detailed review of new endoscopic methods of diagnosis, staging using both conventional and functional imaging and assessment of surgical and medical methods of therapy, providing all members of the team with a detailed overview of the diagnosis and management of this malignancy.
