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 sttings 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. Emphasizes the benefit of a multi-disciplinary approach in the arenas of Surgery, Radiotherapy, and Chemotherapy: the pillars of head and neck oncology. Presents the latest advances in high precision techniques in irradiation, sequencing treatments of chemo and radiotherapy, and the integration of biomolecular therapies. Encompasses organ preservation, treatment of unresectable diseas, post-operative setting, and palliative treatment in both standard-of-care and clinical trial settings. Covers new diagnostic and therapeutic advances developped in translational and clinical research. Presents a clear approach and format covering screening, epidemiology, diagnosis and treatment, and follow-up.
