Gallbladder Cancer

by Vijay K Shukla, Manoj Pandey

This book Gallbladder Cancer is compiled to provide comprehensive cutting edge information on the diagnosis and treatment of carcinoma of the gallbladder. The book provides background information on carcinoma of the gallbladder with regards to its epidemiology and pathology. It then proceeds to the latest developments in diagnostic proc­edures including ultrasonography, computed tomography, endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography, percutaneous transhepatic cholangio­graphy and endoscopic ultrasonography. The methods by which these modalities can detect carcinoma of the gallbladder in its early stages and define the extent of carcinoma involvement, which has a great bearing on the planning of the operative intervention, are discussed. Third, radical operative procedures used are presented. Subsequently, palliative procedures presently employed for advanced cases are reviewed. This book will prove to be an invaluable reference guide for those involved in the management of gallbladder cancer.
