About this book

This book aims to comprehensibly describe the minimally invasive technique including robot assisted procedures of upper abdominal cancer, including aspects such as surgical anatomy, neoadjuvant therapy and minimally invasive surgical technique, and robot assisted procedures (5 alinea). Upper abdominal oncological surgery is increasingly approached by Minimally Invasive Surgery (MIS). Due to the rising experience of young surgeons with MIS, the optimal imaging obtained during the procedure and the possibility of decreasing the postoperative complications has led to an increase of quality of life without compromising the completeness of resection.

The book bases its approach on the information gathered by MIS observation and the step-by-step descriptions, by using illustrations and videos of surgical procedures for oncological resections of esophageal and gastric cancer, as well as for duodenum, pancreas, spleen and liver cancers.

Furthermore, this book will serve as a teaching guide, providing a present-day introduction to the increasingly sophisticated performance of surgery required by general and  specialized surgical practitioners. The reader will have access to a practical book with relevant information that guides adequate treatment.

About the authors

Miguel A. Cuesta is emeritus Professor of Digestive Surgery at the VUmc in Amsterdam, Netherlands. After his publication as editor in 1993 of the book “Minimally Invasive Surgery in Gastrointestinal Cancer”, considered as a pioneer work in the use of Minimally Invasive Surgery (MIS) in Oncological Surgery, his work has been focused on looking for evidence of MIS. He has participated and initiated different randomized controlled trials concerning Colorectal and Upper GI surgery comparing the Open and the MIS approaches. It has been a huge honor for him to be editor of this comprehensive book “Minimally Invasive Surgery for Upper Abdominal Cancer”, coordinating the work of 34 outstanding surgical oncologists and their groups.

Reviews

“This is a well written book on the various minimally invasive approaches (including laparoscopic, hybrid, and robotic) for oncologic treatment of the major upper gastrointestinal organ systems, as well as the evidence regarding minimally invasive surgery compared to open. This is a must-have for surgical oncologists wishing to dive into minimally invasive surgery for the upper GI tract.” (Daniel Budreau, Doody's Book Reviews, January, 2018)
