  • Description
  • Details

Biliary Tract and Gallbladder Cancer: Diagnosis and Therapy is a comprehensive and definitive discussion of all aspects of the treatment of malignant tumors of the gallbladder and biliary tract.

This is the first book to examine malignant tumors of the gallbladder and biliary tract in such depth, as rapid advances in surgical oncology and radiotherapeutic approaches have demanded the full coverage this text provides.

The book progresses logically, with early chapters presenting the epidemiologic, pathologic, and pathogenetic characteristics of BT and GB lesions, followed by excellent discussions of clinical and radiologic diagnosis and staging. Finally, the full arsenal of therapeutic approaches is presented, from the local to systemic, established to experimental. Segments throughout detail the most current cutting-edge therapies, making the latest information readily available across a number of subdisciplines.

Biliary Tract and Gallbladder Cancer serves as the single-source knowledge base for multidisciplinary biliary tract cancer management. It is comprehensive enough to demonstrate new treatments of biliary tract cancer to experienced practitioners, yet concise enough to serve as an introduction to novices in the field.
