This book provides a survey for the gastric cancer surgeon. Two main chapters deal with resection and different types of reconstruction. Further contributions deal with clinical and pathological staging, imaging diagnostic tools, survival, and outcome after surgery, and adjuvant therapy. In particular the technique of the ileocolon interpositional graft for reconstruction is emphasized. This book is written for gastric surgeons, gastroenterologists, and oncologists. Numerous figures illustrate the different surgical techniques and explain the operative procedure step-by-step.

MEDIA REVIEWS

From the reviews:

"This book deals mainly with one specific gastric substitute, namely the ileocolic interpositional graft. ... the merits of this book are in the field of surgical research. ... Scientifically it is a good work ... ." (W. Vanneerdeweg, Acta Chirurgica Belgica, Vol. 103 (2), 2003)

"This beautifully presented and mercifully slim volume is a little out of the mainstream of surgical books being published today. ... the book is really about an ileocaecal segment as a gastric substitute. ... The line diagrams in the book are very good. I think anyone with an interest in gastric surgery who needed a relatively brief overview of the area of gastrectomy and its effects, and the means of replacing the stomach, could usefully purchase this book." (G. G. Jamieson, The British Journal of Surgery, Vol. 90 (10), 2003)

"This excellent book focuses on gastric resection and reconstruction. The authors are recognized surgeons who have great clinical experience in the field of digestive surgery ... . Over 100 didactic figures illustrate the different surgical techniques and explain the operative procedure step by step. In conclusion, this extremely clear written book is of great value to gastric surgeons, gastroenterologists and oncologists." (Leo H. Buhler, Swiss Surgery, Issue 5, 2003)
