Laparoscopic Surgical Oncology by Pappas, Leandros & Bramis
The focus of this book is the description of laparoscopic techniques as they are currently applied in surgical oncology. The authors have endeavored to include the information necessary to the formulation of clinicaldecisions. This is particularly important in this field, since a misjudged application of the laparoscopic techniques for a cancer patient could potentially compromise the oncological outcome. In addition, operative techniques are presented in detail, emphasizing the clinical setting and the scientific rationale for their undertaking, in hopes of instilling sound judgment in the novice and reinforcing it in the established practitioner. Each chapter begins with a short discussion of clinical pathophysiology, covering treatment indications and options.
