Reviews

From the reviews:

“This textbook takes a brave step in attempting to nail down the many complexities arising in the treatment of Hepatocellular Carcinoma (HCC) today. … The book purports to be of interest to healthcare professionals and trainees … . provides a valuable handbook for the practitioner to consult when counseling patients. … a useful reference for currently available algorithms and treatments that will prove useful in understanding and providing the best care for patients with HCC in the context of local resources.” (Willscott Naugler, Journal of Gastrointestinal Oncology, 2011)

“A highlight of this book is the comprehensive review of the alterations in cell physiology, which allow for the transformation of normal cells into malignant cells. … An in-depth review of the pathologic features and characteristics are performed. … This book is ideal for any physician involved in the care of HCC patients. It is well written and organized making it easy to read. House officers, fellows, and more seasoned physicians in internal medicine, surgery, or radiology will benefit from this comprehensive review.” (Crisitina R. Ferrone, Annals of Surgery, Vol. 254 (6), December, 2011)

“This is a comprehensive but portable book on hepatocellular carcinoma, a major cause of cancer deaths worldwide. … It is written for practitioners in the field and, because management is multidisciplinary, this will include a wide spectrum of specialists. Surgeons, gastroenterologists, radiologists (especially interventional radiologists), hepatologists, oncologists, anesthesiologists, and others will find the book of interest. … a useful reference for clinicians involved in the care of these difficult patients. It is both compact and affordable and, thus, is a welcome addition to the field.” (Carol Scott-Conner, Doody’s Review Service, March, 2012)
