Book Description:

From the reviews:

?Adenocarcinoma of the Esophagogastric Junction provides today?s most comprehensive and tailored description of the pathogenesis, diagnosis, staging, and therapy of malignancy of a single region within the upper digestive tract. ? The chapters are succinct and well written, and the topics follow a logical progression of thought. ? one reads through, a sense of ?order? is appreciated and this ultimately frames the barriers that exist in the care of these patients. I left this text with many new perspectives and a sense of ?purpose.?? (Blair A. Jobe, Journal of Gastrointestinal Cancer, Vol. 43, 2012)
