About this book

Gastric Carcinoma/Classification, Diagnosis, and Therapy presents the most current perspective on gastric carcinoma, with particular emphasis on the surgical and chemotherapeutic modalities that offer hope for future treatment. The book discusses epidemiology, pathogenesis, and precancerous and clinical stage classification of the disease and provides valid practical guidelines for stage-specific diagnosis, therapy, and patient guidance. Topics explored include endoscopic criteria for premalignant lesions and early gastric carcinoma; clinical staging of gastric cancer by ultrasound, computerized tomography, and magnetic resonance tomography; surgical treatment of carcinomas of the gastroesophageal junction; possibilities for palliative treatment in surgical practice for advanced tumors; adjuvant treatment of gastric cancer; and chemotherapy of advanced gastric carcinomas in elderly and high-risk patients.
