Integrative Pancreatic Intervention Therapy: A Holistic Approach summarizes, in a systematic manner, the diagnosis and treatment of late, critical pancreatic diseases. The book gives insights into each interventional technique, with an ultimate goal of improving survival rates for late stage pancreatic cancer patients. Six sections cover basic and transformation research on pancreatic diseases, interventional therapy for benign pancreatic disease, interventional therapy for malignant pancreatic diseases, interventional therapy for pancreative cancer-related lesions, stem cell and targeted molecular therapy for pancreative carcinoma, and combined interventional therapy for pancreative carcinoma.
This book will be useful for those looking to understand how best to apply interventional therapy for the improvement of late state pancreatic cancer treatment.
- Gives a step-by-step account of interventional therapy in late stage pancreatic cancer
- Presents research on interventional techniques for plotting a management plan for late stage pancreatic cancer patients
- Provides fundamental research in pancreatic cancer on the genes and signaling pathways relating to tumorigenesis and metastasis of advanced pancreatic cancer
- Considers the combination of different interventional techniques to achieve better survival rates and increase quality of life for patients
- Assesses the usefulness of combining interventional therapies into a holistic treatment approach
