Written by leading international physicians and investigators, this innovative multi-disciplinary book presents the most up-to-date research and clinical approaches to squamous cell carcinomas of the head and neck. In recent years, great advances in translational research have lead to new treatment paradigms. This book covers such progress in a number of clinical settings including programs of organ and function preservation, curative treatments of unresectable disease, adjuvant treatments in high-risk patients, and palliative approaches for recurrent/metastatic disease. Complementary to the techniques of surgery, radiotherapy and chemotherapy, the authors present data on epidemiology, molecular pathology, normal tissue complications, rehabilitation, palliative care, treatment in the elderly, and socio-economic aspects. State-of-the-art functional imaging techniques are covered. The latest developments in high precision techniques in irradiation, sequencing treatments of chemo- and radiotherapy, as wells as the integration of biomolecular therapies into cytotoxic treatments are also explored.
