Gastrointestinal Stromal Tumors

This textbook provides a comprehensive, state of the art review of this field, and will serve as a valuable resource for clinicians, surgeons and researchers with an interest in GIST. The book  reviews new data about risk factors for the disease, profiles the new staging system for GIST, highlights our current understanding of genetic mutations that lead to GIST, and provides new perspectives about imaging of  GIST tumors. For localized disease, a greater appreciation of organ-sparing approaches and the importance of preservation of gastrointestinal function is discussed in detail, and advances in surgical techniques are highlighted, including minimally invasive surgery. For metastatic disease, the molecular biology of GIST is reviewed in a detailed and understandable manner, including the data that has fostered novel targeted approaches that have revolutionized management. Several landmark trials have been published in the last few years and are placed in context with respect to current management. Integration of surgery and systemic therapy through consolidative approaches has yielded provocative data that promises to further advance the field, and major advances in this domain are also discussed.   Gastrointestinal Stromal Tumors: Bench to Bedside will serve as a very useful resource for physicians and researchers dealing with, and interested in, this challenging malignancy. It provides a concise yet comprehensive summary of the current status of the field that will help guide patient management and stimulate investigative efforts. All chapters are written by experts in their fields and include the most up to date scientific and clinical information.

Gastrointestinal stromal tumors (GISTs) are the most frequent mesenchymal tumors of the gastrointestinal tract. A definition of a new entity among the gastrointestinal mesenchymal tumors called the gastrointestinal stromal tumors (GISTs) which express the kit (CD117) protein a growth factor trans-membrane receptor with tyrosine kinase activity. Surgery is the mainstay of therapy for non-metastatic GISTs. The c-kit tyrosine kinase inhibitor Imatinib (Glivec), was found to be useful in treating GISTs, leading to a 40-70% response rate in metastatic or inoperable cases.The current Response Evaluation Criteria in solid tumors are based on uni-dimensional tumor size, and do not take into account changes in responding GISTs such as a decrease in tumor density and decrease in the number of intra-tumoral vessels with CT. PET/CT is highly sensitive in assessment early response to Imatinib mesylate. Also, it is useful in predicting long-term response to imatinib in patients with metastatic GIST, however, widespread use of PET is limited because of cost constraints.

A Common pattern of disease
49,00 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Radiographic evaluation of dilated small bowel disease is best approached by categorization of the mucosal fold pattern. This review illustrates a differential diagnosis of the most common pattern of dilated small bowel disease. The presence of dilated small bowel with thin and straightened valvulae conniventes is most commonly seen with obstruction, particularly when long segment or diffuse disease is identified. However, one must consider rare forms of obstruction, like SMA syndrome and post-surgical internal hernias, non-obstructive adynamic ileus, celiac disease and scleroderma. When the process is more focal or segmental, additional causes such as aneurismal lymphoma, gastrointestinal stromal tumors (GIST) and massive small bowel diverticula may also be considered.
