Pancreatic Cancer, Cystic Neoplasms and Endocrine Tumors: Diagnosis and Management


Edited by Hans G. Beger, Germany; Akimasa Nakao, Japan; John P. Neoptolemos, UK; Shuyou Peng, China; and Michael Sarr, USA.



Pancreatic Cancer, Cystic Neoplasms and Endocrine Tumors: Diagnosis and Management is a modern, expertly crafted and clinically focused guide to the diagnosis, management and best–practice care of patients suffering from pancreatic cancer, cystic neoplasms and endocrine tumours.

Packed with outstanding figures and with reference to the leading society guidelines, its main focus is on the many endoscopic and radiologic diagnostic techniques, medical and surgical management of both full–blown cancer and other tumors, and the risks of each form of treatment.  Also covered in detail are issues of tumor recurrence and long–term outcome of treatment.

Brought to you by highly skilled national and international leaders in the specialty and an experienced editor team, this is an invaluable guide to practicing gastroenterologists and surgeons in the hospital and clinical environment, as well as oncologists and endocrinologists managing patients with pancreatic tumorous lesions.
