Atlas of Gastrointestinal Endoscopy and Related Pathology Book Review:

Endoscopy is the principal tool for the investigation of most disorders of the gastrointestinal tract. All practicing gastroenterologists must be able to perform the technique for diagnostic and therapeutic purposes. Successful endoscopy relies upon a grasp of what to do and how to do it (details of which are also found in books like Cotton and Williams) along with the ability to recognize abnormalities and diagnose disease. This book provides a very large collection of high quality images of normal and abnormal endoscopic appearances. Parallel pathological photomicrographs, together with a detailed running text, offer an approach not previously attempted. There are major chapters on the upper and lower gastrointestinal tract and on endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP). In addition there is a chapter on the rapidly developing field of enteroscopy. The contribution on endoscopic ultrasonography (EUS) will be of special interest to gastroenterologists and radiologists. There is also a chapter on "Getting the most out of your pathologist," explaining in some detail the pathologist's potential contributions. All chapters, as appropriate, include sections on technique and on therapeutic aspects of endoscopy. A special feature of Atlas of Gastrointestinal Endoscopy and Related Pathology is the extensive use of clear explanatory images: many of the endoscopic and radiological, and all the pathological and endosonographic figures are accompanied by annotated black-and-white corresponding figures. developed and expanded from the highly successful first edition, published in 1986 over 1900 figures over 1200 high quality endoscopic images parallel pathological photomicrographs diagnostic and therapeutic aspects of endoscopy includes the developing fields of enteroscopy and endoscopic ultrasonography full range of annotated explanatory images

Cystic Tumors of the Pancreas Book Review:

This book provides a detailed, up-to-date overview of cystic tumors of the pancreas, with coverage of all aspects of diagnosis and treatment (medical, endoscopic, and surgical). After opening chapters on pathology and classification, cytology, molecular biology, and epidemiology, the role of each of the relevant diagnostic methods is carefully examined. The treatment-related chapters describe surgical approaches, including minimally invasive surgery, as well as ablation modalities and chemo-radiotherapy. Thorough guidance is also provided specifically on the management of cystic tumors in high-risk cases and on follow-up. The authors are global opinion leaders in their field who have contributed cutting-edge chapters, with emphasis on clear diagnostic and therapeutic algorithms and with numerous supporting tables and illustrations. Owing to the widespread use of imaging modalities, clinicians are being confronted by an increasing number of patients with cystic tumors of the pancreas, ranging from benign cysts to metastasized malignancies. The widening spectrum of available diagnostic measures has resulted in controversy over the choice of further means of investigation when cystic changes are encountered, and the growth in therapeutic options has similarly been accompanied by considerable debate over their use. Against this background, Cystic Tumors of the Pancreas will be a valuable source of relevant information for both clinicians and surgeons and will also be of interest to radiologists, pathologists, and basic scientists.

Bladder Tumors Book Review:

Bladder cancer is a common cancer of the urinary tract. It is the fourth leading cause of cancer-related death among men and the seventh among women. Clinical management of bladder cancer is challenging because of the heterogeneity among bladder tumors with respect to invasion and metastasis, frequent occurrence of new tumors in the bladder among patients treated with bladder preservation treatments and poor prognosis of patients with tumors that invade the bladder muscle and beyond. Due to these factors it has been said that the cost per patient of bladder cancer, from diagnosis to death is the highest of all cancers. In addition to it being a significant health problem, bladder cancer is an interesting cancer to study in many ways than one. For example, Environmental factors such as cigarette smoking and other carcinogens play a major role in the development of transitional carcinoma of the bladder, whereas, schitosomasis, a protozoan infection results in squamous cell carcinoma of the bladder. Different molecular pathways with distinct molecular signatures appear to be involved in the development of low-grade versus high-grade bladder tumors. Currently being monitored by an invasive endoscopic procedure, cystectomy, with urine cytology as an adjunct, bladder cancer is at the forefront of developing cancer biomarkers for non-invasive detection. Due to the differences in the invasive and metastatic potential of bladder tumors, treatment options differ depending upon tumor grade and stage. New advances are being made in treatment options to improve the outcome and quality of life for patients with bladder cancer. Similarly, new molecular nomograms are being discovered to predict treatment outcome so that individualized treatment options can be offered to patients.
