Comprehensive Management of Head and Neck Cancer

by Narayana Subramaniam, Sivakumar Vidhyadharan, Samskruthi P Murthy

The aim of this book is to focus on the Comprehensive Management of Head and Neck Cancer. Head and neck cancer is an excellent example of a specialty that requires a multidisciplinary approach at every level-prior to diagnosis, through treatment and during rehabilitation. This book comprised of 5 sections that include pretreatment assessment and evaluation, management of head and neck cancer, management of tumor-like lesions of the head and neck, reconstruction in head and neck cancer, and post-treatment care and rehabilitation, which are further divided into 46 chapters. Each clinical chapter is presented in a systematic manner, to incorporate the most recent evidence-based practice guidelines, while also presenting the controversies in a succinct manner. The addition of chapters that encompass genetics, molecular pathway and translational biology direct the reader to consider current concepts of precision and personalized therapy. Management principles are also presented as a continuum of care, for example in planning surgical resection and reconstruction, or surgical planning in anticipation of radiation or chemotherapy. Apart from figures and tables summarizing each relevant section, the book has also included key algorithms and protocols and standardized questionnaires that are useful in planning audits and research protocols.
