Product Description:
Gastric cancer remains a challenging problem in oncology. This book is designed to provide an updated summary of the current status of gastric cancer diagnosis and management and to show what the future possibilities in the management of stomach cancer might be.
 
In their chapters,
Dr. Hundahl provides an update on the role of surgery in gastric cancer, emphasizing that it is now possible to tailor surgical approaches to individual patients;
 
Drs. Chua and Cunningham provide important information documenting the recently demonstrated benefits of perioperativechemotherapy in improving the outcome of patients with gastric cancer;
 
Drs. Mahtani and Waltzman discuss the important gains in cure ratesresulting from the use of post-gastrectomy chemoradiation, which hasmade this approach a standard of care in the view of many clinicians;
 
Dr. Mitchell reviews the current status of cytotoxic chemotherapy in stomach cancer, emphasizing the many chemotherapeutic options available and the reasoning that clinicians use in choosing the right treatment option for the right patient;
 
and Drs. Shah and Ilson share their views of the future directions that will be pursued in the management of this disease. These experienced
clinicians provide a critical analysis of the roles of targeted therapies for patients with stomach cancer.
 
Although it is clear that in the past several decades some strides have been made in improving outcomes in gastric cancer, it is still a fact that too many patients diagnosed with gastric cancer will succumb to their disease.
 
It is hoped that this book, which reviews the most recent management strategies and provides an informed glimpse of what the future approaches might be, will leave clinicians with a sense of optimism for what they may do now for their patients and what progress the future will undoubtedly hold
