about this item

Kidney Cancer: Principles and Practice is a comprehensive and interdisciplinary textbook that encompasses all clinically relevant aspects of the disease. This new edition has been extensively updated and includes brand new material covering the most recent developments in kidney cancer diagnosis and therapy. The user-friendly and clinically oriented content of the book guarantees that it will be of great interest to a wide range of medical professionals, and every effort has been made to ensure that contributions are both easy to understand and directly related to patient care. Content presentation departs from the usual dense chapter format featuring a lengthy series of paragraphs. Instead, each chapter contains several boxed sections, including one that summarizes essential "take home points" for the busy clinician and another that presents a patient-oriented case highlighting the clinical application of elements discussed in that chapter. In addition, accessible original images, illustrations, and diagrams (some in full color) are used to simplify particularly complex material. This book will be of value for clinicians, researchers, residents, fellows, students, and knowledgeable lay people. The contributors comprise an international group of authors with expertise in kidney cancer epidemiology, molecular biology, pathology, diagnosis, clinical features, staging, prognostic and predictive factors, surgery, systemic therapy, and emerging investigational approaches, among others.
