Malignant peritoneal disease in its various forms is a devastating condition for patients who suffer from it, and poses a significant challenge for clinicians caring for them. Research efforts in this field have traditionally been scarce because of the assumption of a uniformly fatal and hopeless outcome.This book offers a comprehensive compilation of the latest knowledge accumulated in peritoneal surface oncology in the dawn of the twenty-first century. It covers the complete spectrum of current research in peritoneal malignant dissemination, from its pathogenesis and molecular mechanisms to the latest clinical trials. Additionally, the book reviews the essentials of perioperative intraperitoneal chemotherapy and modern histopathological assessment of peritoneal surface malignancy. The book takes a unique historical perspective on how this new knowledge has unfolded over the years, helping to point out potential direction for future research. The outstanding panel of authors includes leading experts from around the world, among them the pioneers who gave birth to this new era in oncology.
