The Second Edition of TNM Staging Atlas with Oncoanatomy has been updated to include all new cancer staging information from the Seventh Edition of the AJCC Cancer Staging Manual. The atlas presents cancer staging in a highly visual rapid-reference format, with clear full-color diagrams and TNM stages by organ site. The illustrations are three-dimensional, three-planar cross-sectional presentations of primary anatomy and regional nodal anatomy. They show the anatomic features identifiable on physical and/or radiologic examination and the anatomic extent of cancer spread which is the basis for staging. A color code indicates the spectrum of cancer progression at primary sites (T) and lymph node regions (N). The text then rapidly reviews metastatic spread patterns and their incidence. For this edition, CT or MRI images have been added to all site-specific chapters to further detail cancer spread and help plan treatment. Staging charts have been updated to reflect changes in AJCC guidelines, and survival curves from AJCC have been added.

„Was liest du gerade?“ So beginnt das Gespräch zwischen Will Schwalbe und seiner Mutter Mary Anne. Sie ist todkrank, doch anstatt zu verzweifeln, widmet sie sich ihrer großen Leidenschaft, dem Lesen. Über ein Jahr begleitet Will seine Mutter bis zum Ende ihres Lebens – und durch eine Welt von Büchern, die sie gemeinsam erkunden: Joseph und seine Brüder, Die Eleganz des Igels, Der Vorleser ... Am Ende erkennt Will: Lesen ist nicht das Gegenteil von handeln – es ist das Gegenteil von sterben. Will Schwalbe erzählt die Geschichte jenes Jahres. Er erzählt von den Büchern, die ihrer beider Leben geprägt haben. Und er erzählt von Trauer, Angst und der Erkenntnis, dass das Glück ganz unerwartet aus dem Moment heraus entsteht.

In der klinischen Onkologie spielt die exakte Klassifikation der malignen Tumoren in Bezug auf das Ausmaß der Ausbreitung zum Zeitpunkt der Diagnose eine wesentliche Rolle. Diese Klassifikation erfolgt heute nach dem neuen TNM-System, das die neuesten Erkenntnisse berücksichtigt und weltweit vereinheitlicht ist. Die vorliegende 2. Auflage des TNM-Atlas basiert auf der 4. Auflage der TNM-Klassifikation maligner Tumoren. Die verschiedenen TNM/pTNM-Kategorien werden für 47 Tumorlokalisationen in schematischen Abbildungen dargestellt. Damit wird die in der modernen klinischen Onkologie so wichtige Klassifikation maligner Tumoren nach dem TNM-System für den onkologisch tätigen Kliniker und Pathologen erleichtert. Der große Erfolg der 1. Auflage des TNM-Atlas zeigt, daß dieses didaktisch aufgebaute Buch für alle onkologisch tätigen Ärzte ein unerläßliches Hilfsmittel zur Dokumentation und Stadienbestimmung von Krebserkrankungen ist.

Validation of the Eighth Edition American Joint Committee on Cancer Staging System for Human Papillomavirus associated Oropharyngeal Cancer

ISBN: OCLC:1032141562
Release Date: 2017

Abstract: Background: The eighth edition American Joint Committee on Cancer (AJCC) staging manual includes major changes in staging of oropharyngeal cancer (OPC). We evaluated the new staging system in order to validate this shift in classification. Methods: We used the National Cancer Database (NCDB) to identify patients with human papillomavirus‐associated (HPV‐positive) OPC from 2010‐2013. We restaged patients using the eighth edition guidelines and compared them with those from the seventh edition. We calculated stage‐specific overall survival and concordance indices. Results: We identified 15 116 patients with a median follow‐up period of 29.1 months. Clinical and pathological staging changed for 93.9% and 91.7% of patients, respectively. Survival concordance indices for both clinical (0.621‐0.656) and pathological (0.640‐0.663) staging were improved in the eighth edition compared to the seventh edition. Conclusion: The eighth edition guidelines have profoundly altered staging of HPV‐positive OPC and seem to demonstrate improved survival discrimination.
