The incidence of primary and metastatic liver tumors is rising and the therapeutic armamentarium for these tumors is expanding at a rapid pace. Surgery remains the primary treatment modality for these tumors. With improvements in our perioperative management and operative techniques a larger proportion of patients are able to undergo potentially curative liver surgery. In addition, indications and criteria for liver transplantation for both primary and metastatic liver tumors are constantly expanding. Unfortunately, many patients are not amendable to surgical resection or liver transplantation and therefore alternative liver-directed therapies are routinely being implemented as part of complex multidisciplinary treatment models. However, these models are continually evolving as these regional therapeutic options continue to expand. New embolization agents and techniques, as well as, improvements in radiation delivery, are all evolving in the background of improvement in systemic and targeted therapy options for these tumors. This book provides a comprehensive, state-of-the art review of the current state of liver-directed therapy for malignant liver tumors. The book will serve as a valuable resource for not only surgeons and clinicians but for researchers with an interest in malignant liver tumors. The book focuses on the therapeutic approach to primary and metastatic tumors providing an up-to-date review on surgical liver anatomy and new imaging techniques as well as patient selection and technical consideration for resection and transplantation. In addition, the book provides new insight into novel and evolving therapies in the areas of transarterial therapy such as: (i) bland embolization, (ii) chemoembolization, and (iii) radioembolization; as well as new radiation techniques including SBRT and proton therapy. Furthermore, the expanding role of hepatic artery infusion therapy in primary malignant tumors is highlighted. Finally, integration of all these regional therapy options with upcoming and evolving systemic and targeted therapy regimens are integrated and discussed. This book will serve as a very useful resource for clinicians and researchers managing and treating patients with these challenging malignancies. It provides a concise yet comprehensive summary of the current status of the field that will help guide patient management and stimulate investigative efforts.

A review of the First Edition said "This excellent presentation gives a detailed history of the development and scientific principles behind the Oxford mobile bearing unicompartmental knee replacement. The elegant prose makes it very readable and the book presents a comprehensive review of the implant with good illustrations. With nearly a million knee arthroplasties being performed worldwide per annum and the possibility of up to a third of these cases being eligible for unicompartmental replacement, this is an important document. The work provides an excellent bibliography and the accompanying DVD is essential viewing for all knee surgeons involved in unicompartmental prosthetic arthroplasty." Journal of Bone and Joint Surgery, Vol 89-B (2), 2007, p. 283. The Second Edition of the book traces the 40 year development by surgeons and engineers in Oxford of a unique method of unicompartmental knee replacement with the 'Oxford Knee' prosthesis. The challenge to the surgeon is to replace the damaged surfaces of the arthritic joint so effectively that the soft tissues of the whole joint and the surfaces of the other compartments can resume all their physiological functions, a more difficult task than total knee replacements confront. As a user's guide, the book allows the surgeon to gain a good understanding of the biomechanics of the normal knee, of the pathological anatomy of unicompartmental arthritis, and the rationale of the design of instruments and implants. The outcome of the operation depends greatly on choice of the right patient and exact implantation of the prosthesis, subjects that are dealt with exhaustively. The reader can use this book as an adjunct to the implant specific instructional courses available. Additionally this Second Edition describes additional clinical evidence published up to mid-2016, and gives a more detailed description of the biomechanics of the natural and replaced knee together with the use of the new Microplasty instruments and the Domed Lateral operation. The book also provides long-term data on wear and revision rates for the Oxford Knee and covers common questions asked and the problems confronted by users. Animations of mathematical models of the intact and replaced knee, as well as full video footage of knee replacement operations and other accompanying information, can be found at www.oxfordpartialknee.com.

Operative trauma surgery is a key element of surgical training world-wide, but many surgical trainees have only limited exposure to it throughout their training. The aim of this book is to provide a detailed technical guide for trauma surgery by two experienced surgical educators who are experts in the field. The original concept behind this text (compared to other operative surgery texts) is a special emphasis on intra-operative judgement, decision-making, and thought processes, as well as technical 'tips and tricks'. The book will be generously illustrated with black-and-white line drawings, but will NOT be a surgical atlas, because there will not be a step-by-step sequence of illustrations for each procedure. The illustrations will be incorporated into the text rather than appearing on separate pages. As such, the book will be an 'operative surgery' book, along the lines of such British classics as Peter Jones' 'Emergency Abdominal Surgery', Hugh Dudley's editions of 'Hamilton Bailey's Emergency Surgery' and Keen's 'Operative Surgery and Management'.
From the Introduction: "Precision oncology offers a hugely exciting opportunity to personalise cancer treatments and prevention for the benefit of the individual but does present great challenges at present, both scientific and ethical."We now have the capacity to identify the abnormalities in genes and proteins that introduce the risk of individuals developing cancer and are responsible for the classical behaviour of a cancer. Having done this, healthcare teams are able to better diagnose cancer, evolve preventive strategies, and develop and deploy targeted cancer therapies. Precision oncology involves better prevention strategies and ensuring that therapeutic interventions can be concentrated on those who will benefit, reducing expense and sparing side effects for those who will not. This new educational resource provides an overview of the latest progress in developing precision oncology, plus a ground breaking collection of case studies ("Problems") showing precision oncology in practice.It includes a clear, readable summary of developments, alongside real-life case studies, providing a valuable update for all involved in the oncology community.The editors lead research and clinical teams at four UK centres of excellence in the field.
