Gastroesophageal cancers are the most common form of cancer incidents, and the second most common cause of death among cancer patients. In 2000, it was estimated that over one million new cases of gastroesophageal cancers were diagnosed worldwide, and over 900,000 individuals died from the disease.Using a multi-disciplinary approach, "Esophageal Cancer: Principles and Practice" addresses the complexities encountered in the understanding and management of esophageal cancers. Written by the world's leading experts in surgery, medical oncology, radiation oncology, gastroenterology, pathology, radiology, nutrition, nurse specialists, palliative medicine, and research relating to neoplasia of the esophagus, this text will serve as the definitive resource and enable practitioners to provide the best possible patient care. Presented in an accessible and useful format, this text will be a valuable reference to all practitioners participating in the care of this high-needs population.It features: complete coverage of the two most common tumors: squamous cell carcinoma and adenocarcinoma; and, in-depth coverage of uncommon tumors.a Contents Biology 1 Esophageal Embryology and Congenital Disorders by Alexandru Gaman and Braden Kuo 3 2 Esophageal Anatomy by Braden Kuo and Alexandru Gaman 11 3 The Biology of Epithelial Esophageal Cancer by Eric S.
