Casciato. Manual de oncología clínica, 8th Edition

Manual de referencia completo, conciso y actual que expone la ciencia básica, los avances clínicos y la tecnología disponible para el diagnóstico y el tratamiento del cáncer. Los capítulos de esta obra, que ha alcanzado una importante popularidad, presentan la información necesaria para que profesionales, residentes y estudiantes puedan tomar decisiones clínicas, tanto diagnósticas como terapéuticas, en relación con los pacientes con cáncer. A lo largo de sus siete ediciones anteriores, el manual ha crecido para incluir todos los desarrollos y avances en oncología. Para esta 8.ª edición se han incorporado los principales desarrollos en inmunoterapia y tratamientos biológicos y dirigidos. La obra pretende seguir siendo lo más completa, actual y concisa posible, sin correr el riesgo de quedar rápidamente obsoleta, algo que habitualmente ocurre en los libros sobre esta especialidad.

Como en sus anteriores ediciones, la obra está dividida en cuatro secciones que recogen todo lo necesario de la especialidad. La sección I presenta los principios del diagnóstico y el tratamiento del cáncer; las secciones II y III se centran en las neoplasias específicas siguiendo un formato y una estructura uniforme, y la sección IV explica las complicaciones del cáncer según la afectación orgánica final, ya sea por invasión local, metástasis, paraneoplasia o tratamiento. También sigue incluyendo los interesantes apéndices con glosario de nomenclatura citogenética, las clasificaciones de la Organización Mundial de la Salud de las neoplasias hematopoyéticas (2016) y pautas o regímenes de poliquimioterapia de mayor utilidad para tratar los linfomas.

Características principales:
  • El texto se organiza por apartados numerados, con una presentación visual que facilita una rápida consulta. La secuencia básica de presentación y desarrollo temático es:
  • Numerosos algoritmos de diagnóstico y tratamiento, así como contenido sobre complicaciones, para la asistencia en la toma de decisiones clínicas.
  • Apéndices útiles: nomenclatura citogenética, clasificaciones de la Organización Mundial de la Salud de las neoplasias hematopoyéticas (2016) y pautas o regímenes de poliquimioterapia de mayor utilidad para tratar los linfomas.
  • Organización temática: Aspectos generales, Tumores sólidos, Neoplasias hematopoyéticas y Complicaciones.

Novedades con respecto a la anterior edición:
  • Con los avances más importantes en inmunoterapia y tratamientos biológicos y dirigidos.
  • Nuevos capítulos en biología del cáncer, inmunoterapia y supervivencia del cáncer.

General Information

Brexit Note: There will be an additional cost from UPS for orders shipped to the EU of £4.15 per carton. This will be payable by the customer in addition to any VAT and import duties.
When you buy this book from the Physio Shop you are in fact dealing directly with one of the world's largest medical publishers, Wolters Kluver Health (WKH). WKH is the parent of companies including Lippincott, Williams and Wilkins and the Anatomical Chart Company.
We also try to deliver to you anywhere in the world. Just register and login to the shop to see the shipping price to your destination. These costs are heavily subsidized by the publishers. Unfortunately we are restricted to non-USA sales.
We work directly with WKH and their distribution channel in the UK, NBN International, to deliver your items. This means there is no middle-man to slow up your delivery. If it is in print/stock and is in their warehouse then they'll get it out to you asap. Your orders are sent directly to the warehouse and are actioned usually within 48hrs during the working week. Sometimes charts and models are on regular re-stocking due to popularity however this is replenished on a weekly basis.
If any one item in your purchase is delayed NBN will typically send you what they have in stock and will send on the remainder as soon as it arrives. This is at no additional shipping costs to you. Sending and arriving are however two different things. We send as soon as we can. The mail man and delivery services mean orders can take anything from 48hrs to 3 weeks to arrive depending where in the world you are.
Even better, we currently maintain a flat fee structure for shipping of products from WKH. Buy as many books as you like the we will still charge you the one shipping fee. Perhaps club together with friends if you are after the same title to save even more on shipping!
All orders are actioned from the UK. The UK and Europe can therefore expect more speedy deliveries than those further afield. Rest assured we'll get it to you as fast as the mailing systems allow.
You are also provided with a direct email and phone link on your order invoice that will link you with the person/s responsible for your delivery should you have any queries after purchase.
