Radiofrequency Ablation for Small Hepatocellular Carcinoma ab 138.99 EURO
The optimal treatment for patients with hepatocellular carcinoma is resection. In addition notable improvement in survival is seen after resection of isolated liver metastasis especially in patients with colorectal carcinoma. The aim of this book is to evaluate the role of transcatheter arterial chemoembolization with or without radiofrequency ablation in the management of patients with hepatic malignancy. This combined therapy is worth further study as control of large hepatocellular carcinoma is still a challenging problem, and to assess the long-term clinical efficacy.
Comprehensively covers the rich spectrum of radiologic digestive disease interventionsGreater understanding of gastrointestinal disease has resulted in an evolving array of minimally invasive and noninvasive techniques. Significant advances have maximized patient comfort, improved clinical outcomes, and minimized morbidity. Interventional radiologists are integral to the management of patients with a wide range of digestive disorders, often providing a critical or sole therapeutic option. The field has evolved from a procedure-based radiology subspecialty to a patient-based, clinical specialty working in concert with internists, gastroenterologists, oncologists, and surgeons.Digestive Disease Interventions edited by Baljendra Kapoor and Jonathan Lorenz fills an unmet need for a comprehensive resource covering interventional approaches. Throughout 30 succinct yet comprehensive chapters, top experts detail image-guided gastrointestinal interventions. A full spectrum of pathologies are encompassed âEUR" from benign refractory ascites and biliary strictures, to hepatocellular carcinoma, cholangiocarcinoma, pancreatic cancer, and more.Key FeaturesManagement and treatment of portal hypertension including disease knowledge, the use of shunts, and cutting-edge obliteration techniquesUpdates on recent advances and future directions such as obesity and bariatric embolization and islet cell transplantationState-of-the-art management of liver cancer: GI imaging, staging, ablation and embolization, liver transplants, and Y-90Treatment of acute cholecystitis, cholelithiasis, and choledocholithiasis640 high quality illustrations and halftones elucidate techniquesThis remarkable book is an invaluable resource for fellows, residents, and practitioners in the field of interventional radiology.

Radiofrequency Ablation of Cancer: Current Indications, Techniques and Outcomes discusses the principles and techniques of safe usage of radiofrequency current for the treatment of malignancies. Throughout the text, indications and outcomes data are stressed.Edited and authored by pioneers in the field, the book features extensive discussion of RFA for hepatic tumors, including treatment of liver metastases from colorectal cancer, combined modality therapy for liver metastases, treatment of hepatocellular carcinoma with RFA, laparoscopic RFA, percutaneous RFA, and hepatic metastases from neuroendocrine tumors. In addition, chapters consider the emerging role of RFA in the management of primary breast cancer, primary bone tumors as well as metastatic bone tumors, renal tumors, and lung tumors. The principles and instrumentation as well as the imaging aspects of RFA are presented with comprehensive chapters on ultrasound, MRI, PET and CT by leaders in the field. Complemented by 90 illustrations, this text is the gold standard reference on the use of RFA in treating a wide variety of malignant processes. It will serve as a valuable reference for all physicians engaged in the care of cancer patients.
It is now widely accepted that multidisciplinary collaboration and multimodality treatment approaches are important in improving the survival of patients with hepatocellular carcinoma. In this comprehensive textbook, internationally renowned experts in the field present and discuss the various strategies employed in the treatment of the disease. Up-to-date information is provided on the indications for and outcome of a range of treatment options, including surgical resection, liver transplantation, radiofrequency ablation, transarterial chemoembolization, yttrium-90 transarterial radioembolization, and systemic therapy. In addition, important background information is included on biology, pathology, staging, and imaging. This book will be particularly helpful to all professionals and trainees worldwide who have an interest in the diagnosis and treatment of hepatocellular carcinoma.
This book provides a comprehensive guide to the treatment of small hepatocellular carcinoma (sHCC) using a minimally invasive technique: radiofrequency ablation (RFA). RFA has emerged as a new treatment modality and become the main modality of locoregional therapy. Extensive clinical research indicates that RFA is as effective as surgical resection for sHCC, and it has the advantage of being less invasive. However, the outcomes after RFA are largely dependent on the operators' experience- known as the "learning curve". This book presents the characteristics of sHCC and discusses why sHCC is the best candidate for RFA. Then it introduces all the commercially available RFA systems, and their working principles, advantages, disadvantages and so on. It goes on to demonstrate how to perform RFA under the guidance of ultrasound, CT, laparoscopy, or during open operation. Finally, it discusses the radiologic assessment and follow-up after RFA, as well as adjuvant therapies and clinical trials on RFA. The authors are experts from the fields of pathology, radiology, surgery, and gastroenterology, as well as manufacturers. With this book, readers gain have a clear idea of when and how to do RFA. It aims to standardize and generalize the procedure of RFA, which will be very helpful in improving the outcome of RFA for sHCC.
