Management of Bladder Cancer provides a single, comprehensive reference source that incorporates all the latest information regarding bladder cancer. The text covers epidemiology and natural history of bladder cancer as well as latest findings regarding the genetics and molecular biology of the disease. Diagnostic and staging evaluation of both non-muscle invasive and invasive bladder cancer is discussed. The text incorporates chapters summarizing new findings regarding markers for the diagnosis of bladder cancer and new diagnostic techniques to enhance traditional methods such as cystoscopy. Risk stratified treatment of non muscle invasive bladder cancer including various approaches to intravesical therapy are reviewed. Current guideline based approaches to management and new data regarding diagnosis and prognostication of muscle invasive bladder cancer is analyzed and summarized. The application of chemotherapy for muscle invasive and advanced disease is discussed and the evidence based application of multimodality therapy highlighted. Finally, gaps in current knowledge and areas for future research are highlighted. Ongoing important clinical trials which could imminently yield significant new knowledge is discussed.
Authored by experts in their respective fields, Management of Bladder Cancer will serve as a easy and complete reference source for clinicians, researchers, individuals in training, allied health professionals and medical students in the fields of Urology, Medical Oncology, Radiation Oncology, Basic and Translational Science and Epidemiology.
This book presents ten chapters in the history of the Jewish community of Istanbul from the Ottoman conquest of Constantinople (1453) to the establishment of the Turkish Republic (1923). While delving into specific subjects such as the Romaniot presence in the city, the Karaite society, family life throughout the generations, material culture and its meaning, social life, urban history, economic life, and relations with the Ottoman regime, a common thread binds all of them. Each of the chapters, individually and together, constitutes a journey between different cultures and religions. The history of Istanbul's Jews carries the imprint of Greek Orthodoxy and Catholicism, as well as Islam. It moves in cycles between the Byzantine and Ottoman realms, between Catholic Europe and the Muslim Ottoman Empire, and finally, between the Ottoman Jewish culture and a modern Europe in the throes of secularization. Over 50 images are included to illustrate the multi-cultural aspect of the history presented here. The collection of essays in this volume present high quality scholarship, but equally they provide a fascinating insight to general readers with an interest in Constantinople-Istanbul-Qosta, as well as readers interested in Jewish urban history, the transmission of culture, and multiculturalism.
