This book has been designed to provide the full description of the comprehensive management of peritoneal surface malignancies as a new emerging specialty. Combined treatment of cytoreductive surgery (CRS) and hyperthermic intraoperative intraperitoneal chemotherapy (HIPEC) introduced by our leader Paul H. Sugarbaker are performed to treat peritoneal metastases by surgeons all around the world. Therefore this book is focused on detailed surgical anatomy of the peritoneum, preoperative clinical assessment of the peritoneal surface malignancy, patient preparation and operation room equipments, different surgical procedures for CRS and reconstruction, intraoperative hyperthermic intraperitoneal chemotherapy (HIPEC) and neoadjuvant intraperitoneal chemotherapy, early postoperative intraperitoneal chemotherapy (EPIC) and molecular basis of peritoneal surface malignancies.
The chapter on molecular mechanisms of the formation of peritoneal carcinomatosis provides insight into a rapidly expanding knowledge within this speciality.
This book should be valuable for surgical oncologists who deal with multimodal treatment for peritoneal surface malignancies, as well as for the trained peritonectomy surgeons. For the senior surgeons, it will also introduce new techniques and approaches in this field such as dealing with the omental cakes and massive organ involvement that requires multi-organ resection.
This book contains anatomic drawings and tomographic appearances of the diseases
The contents of the book are designed to allow the reader to follow up easily and apply this knowledge in their clinical practice
This book introduces new techniques and approaches in the field of multimodal treatments for peritoneal surface malignancies
This book describes the comprehensive management and treatment of peritoneal surface malignancies. The authors look at new intraperitoneal drugs, laparoscopic approaches for cytoreductive surgery, intraperitoneal chemotherapy applications as well as new surgical techniques to guide the readers in curing patients with peritoneal metastases. The use of biomolecular markers and morphological examination scoring systems described in this book help predict the extent of the diseases to aid in the diagnosis and treatment of patients.
Peritoneal Surface Malignancies- A Curative Approach is an easy-to-follow book on the management and treatment of peritoneal metastases, aimed at surgeons, oncologists and trainees in their daily clinical practice and surgical preparations.
