The rapid growth over the past decade in the number of options available to manage colorectal cancer patients has created a need to unify this scattered knowledge so that practitioners in one area of treatment can understand the expertise of colleagues working in other areas. In Colorectal Cancer: Multimodality Management, Leonard Saltz, MD, has brought together a team of leading clinical, surgical, and radiation oncologists, as well as those specialists involved in pain management, diagnostic imaging, and complementary medicine, to create a unified vision of the many new possibilities for managing colorectal cancer. Here the practicing clinician will find cutting-edge reviews on advances in diagnostic and therapeutic radiology and the surgical aspects of treating colorectal cancer, the major therapeutic agents, the currently available drugs for first- and second-line management of metastatic colorectal cancer, chemotherapy for adjuvant management, and local regional therapies. Additional reviews explain the molecular genetic events that occur in colorectal cancer, the new understanding of dietary and environmental factors, , possible strategies for prevention, pain control, and complementary and alternative medicine approaches, and sexuality and fertility in the colorectal cancer patient. Evidenced-based, multidisciplinary, and cutting-edge, Colorectal Cancer: Multimodality Management provides busy oncologists, gastroenterologists, surgeons, and radiation therapists an authoritative review of the best currently available approaches to the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of colorectal cancer
