Summary:
This book provides a comprehensive review of the clinical management of hereditary colorectal cancer. The text focuses on six distinct patient groups: patients with elderly age-of-onset colorectal cancer and adenomas, patients with hamartomatous colorectal polyps, patients afflicted with familial adenomatous polyposis (FAP), patients with attenuated familial adenomatous polyposis (AFAP), patients with MYH associated polyposis (MAP), and patients afflicted with lynch syndrome (LS). Each chapter illustrates how clinicians utilize current technologies in genetic testing, pathological review, and endoscopic, surgical, and chemotherapeutic/immunotherapeutic approaches to manage these patient groups. Topics such as the timing of genetic testing, endoscopic screening and surveillance, prophylactic surgical options and chemo-preventive interventions are also discussed in concise yet precise detail. Written by experts in their fields, Management of Hereditary Colorectal Cancer: A Multidisciplinary Approach is a valuable and timely resource for gastroenterologists, surgeons, genetic counselors, medical oncologists, psychologists, and any health caregivers involved with the management of patients and families afflicted with a hereditary form of colorectal cancer. .
