The second edition of this well-received book reflects the state of the art
in surgery for malignant bone tumors in children, with a particular focus on
epiphysiolysis before excision. With a thorough update, new chapters, a clear
presentation of tips and tricks to address complications, as well as supplementary
online videos and tutorials, this book addresses the challenges of limb preservation
that are posed to the surgeon in this new era of cancer treatment characterized
by higher survival rates and longer survival times.
The authors are experienced practitioners of Cañadell's technique, but the book also explores, thanks to the focused contributions of experts from other fields of medicine, a range of topics from the molecular biology and histological aspects of bone tumors, to the use of imaging techniques and surgical options for epiphyseal preservation.
Abundant illustrations and accounts of clinical results make this book an indispensable guide for orthopedic surgeons and pediatric oncologists and give the book an interdisciplinary appeal to practitioners in more general orthopedics, oncology, pediatrics and surgery.
