An Introduction To Cytoreductive Surgery

Paul H. Sugarbaker, MD, FACS, FRCS, and a team of world-renown surgical oncologists have released a ground-breaking text on Cytoreductive Surgery and Perioperative Chemotherapy for Peritoneal Surface Malignancy Sugarbaker, pioneer of this technique, worked closely with Marcello Deraco, Olivier Glehen, Cyril William Helm, David Morris, and Kurt Van der Speeten to carefully craft this educational text for surgical and medical oncologists. Meticulous illustrations and intraoperative photographs are a plum addition to this authoritative text that discusses the rationale, treatment, and results of treating peritoneal metastases, peritoneal mesothelioma, and sarcomatosis.

Section Director of the Program in Peritoneal Surface Malignancy at MedStar Washington Hospital Center, Sugarbaker's favorite chapter is Chapter 1, "An Overview of Peritonectomy, Visceral Resections, and Perioperative Chemotherapy for Peritoneal Surface Malignancy." The chapter provides a general knowledge and overview of the book as a whole, and further Sugarbaker believes represents, "The cytoreductive surgery and perioperative chemotherapy in its most general terms and appropriate for application in all patients with peritoneal surface malignancy."

Also included in the purchase of the book are educational DVDs with discussion by the author.
