Pathology of the esophagus.Автор:
The author of this book has published about 50 papers in English related to esophageal pathology in high-ranking European and American medical journals, and is thus considered a specialist in the areas covered by the book, not only in Japan but elsewhere. The author also has published the English-language textbook Pathology of the Esophagus in 2000, which gave a clear and concise account of advances made in this field by Japanese and world authorities, and provided valuable information for scientists and clinicians all over the world.Since then, there has been a demand to integrate recent advances, such as endoscopic mucosal resection and differences between Japan and Western countries in the histological diagnostic criteria for early neoplasms, into a single textbook. The new book, Pathology of the Esophagus: an Atlas and Text, incorporates all the latest information on the pathology of the esophagus covering the last 5 years, focusing especially on topics such as endoscopic mucosal resection. Some of the data included are very recent, such as Barretts adenocarcinoma with lymphoid stroma, which was first reported in 2002 by the author.This book will be a valuable resource for a wide range of medical doctors and scientists interested in esophageal disorders. For example, surgical pathologists worldwide will be able to learn more about the evidence-based diagnostic criteria used in Japan, and evidence-based therapy using endoscopic mucosal resection.
