Over recent years, ovarian cancer management has embraced molecular biology. It is now more correct to talk about cancers of the ovary rather than ovarian cancer, since it is not a unique disease but several entities with different molecular drivers. The significant advances in drugs targeting the microenvironment or the tumor cell DNA repair mechanisms are presented in detail together with exciting future perspectives.
All these advances would not have been possible without collaborative groups such as the GINECO group in France and their integration in wider clinical research networks at the European (ENGOT) and international (GCIG) level.
Pathology of the Ovary, Fallopian Tube and Peritoneum introduces the topic with a discussion of the anatomy, development, histology and normal function of the ovary, followed by chapters on non-neoplastic disorders of the ovary; surgery and medical management of ovarian cancer; and the use of imaging, frozen sections and cytology in ovarian pathology. The book then goes on to describe specific disorders of the ovary, fallopian tube and peritoneum in detail, and finishes with a chapter on specimen cut-up.
Pathology of the Ovary, Fallopian Tube and Peritoneum has been written to be useful diagnostically to general as well as specialist gynecological histopathologists and pathologists in training. Gynecologists, oncologists, genitourinary physicians and cancer nurse specialists will find expert insights here that will help in treatment and counselling of their patients.
Gynecologic Oncology: Clinical Practice and Surgical Atlas brings together a skill-sharpening reference and full-color atlas to deliver an unmatched introduction to the field. As the most comprehensive, evidence-based gynecologic oncology resource available, this all-in-one resource offers high-yield coverage of the discipline’s underlying principles and proven management strategies.
Each topic is written by experts and is presented in an easily accessible, consistent presentation that highlights clinical practice guidelines, along with the diagnosis and treatment of specific malignancies. This authoritative coverage is reinforced by the state-of-the-art surgical atlas, which offers a richly illustrated, overview of essential procedures designed to build your knowledge and confidence.
FEATURESConsistent, streamlined presentation for each disease consists of: Epidemiology, Pathology, Clinical Presentation, Diagnosis, Staging, Treatment, Survival, Key management strategies Thorough examination of basic gynecological oncology topics, including epidemiology, clinical trial design, biostatistics, genetics and biology of gynecologic cancers, and diagnostic modalities Instructive, A-to-Z coverage of disease sites—from cervical cancer and gestational trophoblastic disease, to epithelial ovarian cancers and breast cancer—emphasizes evidence-based practice guidelines and critical supporting data In-depth, hands-on look at clinical management topics provides an up-to-date survey of perioperative and critical care; the principles of chemotherapy, radiation therapy, and immunotherapies; and quality of care and quality of life Full-color design filled with more than 600 figures, tables, algorithms, color photos, and illustrations Key points helpfully review the main topics to be covered in specific chapters, while chapter conclusions offer convenient summaries of each chapter’s core concepts Chapter-ending references underscore the book’s evidence-based approach
