Head and neck cancer; an evidence-based team approach.


Head and neck cancer; an evidence-based team approach.

Ed. by Eric M. Genden and Mark A. Varvares.

Thieme Medical Publishers


217 pages




Each topic includes input by a surgeon, a medical oncologist, and a radiation oncologist, case studies, clinical and surgical photographs, line drawings and step-by-step instructions, making this a synthesis of the collective wisdom. Topics covered include carcinoma of the oral cavity, oropharynx, hypopharynx, larynx, thyroid, salivary glands, nasal cavity, paranasal sinus, nasopharynx, and skin of the head (including face and neck). The topics include material on diagnosis, treatment planning and implementation, and reconstruction techniques. Particularly interesting is an article of management of carcinoma of an unknown primary site and another containing advice on the surveillance of the patient. The result is a very effective self-study guide and professional reference that would also work as a classroom text.
