  • Details

The text focuses on lower gastrointestinal malignancies and the multi-disciplinary nature of the articles provides readers with an up-to-date summary and a well-rounded review regarding these tumors and their care.

The American Cancer Society estimates that in 2009 there were a total of 152,000 new cases of colorectal and anal cancers diagnosed with over 50,000 deaths from these cancers. Thus it is crucial for the practitioner to be up-to-date on the latest insights regarding their management.

Included in Lower Gastrointestinal Malignancies are chapters on the evolution of systemic agents, neoadjuvant treatment, radiation therapy, chemoradiation therapy, rectal cancer and anal cancer covering the vast majority of these tumors. Expert authors provide reviews and assessments of the most recent data and its implications for current clinical practice, along with insights into emerging new trends of importance for the near future.
