Paperback. 194 pages. Dimensions: 9.2in. x 6.1in. x 0.5in.Among malignant tumors, adenocarcinomas of the esophagogastric junction show the highest increase in incidence over the past three decades in Western industrialized countries. This special volume, with contributions from experts in the field, covers all aspects of the disease. Etiology, pathogenesis, classification, and clinical staging are discussed, and there is special emphasis on state of the art treatment techniques. The latter range from endoscopic mucosal resections or limited surgical resections for early cancers to multimodality treatment options for locally advanced tumors. Emerging quality issues in surgical management are addressed. Detailed attention is also paid to other important recent developments, including molecular response prediction, early metabolic response evaluation by PET and PET-CT, the diagnosis of micrometastases, and the use of sentinel node technology.

About this title:
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)
