Abstract
Gene expression studies have revealed diagnostic profiles and upregulation of specific pathways in many solid tumors. The explosion of new information in gene expression profiling could potentially lead to the development of tailored treatments in many solid tumors. In addition many studies are ongoing to validate these signatures also in predicting response to hormonal, chemotherapeutic and targeted agents in breast cancer as well as in other tumors. Diagnostic, Prognostic and Therapeutic Value of Gene Signatures provides readers a useful and comprehensive resource about the range of applications of microarray technology in oncological diseases. Topics covered include gene signatures and soft tissue sarcomas, prognostic relevance of breast cancer signatures, gene expression profiling of colorectal cancer and liver metastasis, gene signatures in GISTs, CNVs and gene expression profiles in pancreatic cancer, and gene signatures in head/neck, lung and gastric tumors. Diagnostic, Prognostic and Therapeutic Value of Gene Signatures will be of great value to residents and fellows, physicians, pathologists andá medical oncologists.
Contents
Preface -- Gene signatures and soft tissue sarcomas: status of art and perspectives -- Heterogeneity of breast cancer: gene signatures and beyond -- Gene signatures in CRC and liver metastasis -- Gene signatures in gastrointestinal stomal tumors (GIST) -- Pancreatic cancer genetics -- Diagnostic, prognostic and therapeutic value of gene signatures in non-small-cell lung cancer -- Gene signatures in gastric cancer -- Gene signatures in colorectal cancer -- The role of epigenetics in cancer: from molecular function to high-throughput assays -- Primary epithelial ovarian neoplasms: new concepts concerning origin, pathogenesis and classification based on morphology, immunomarkers, molecular features and gene expression studies -- Thyroid carcinoma: molecular signature by histotype specific mutations and gene expression patterns.

Abstract
PET-CT is increasingly being employed in the diagnosis of both oncological and non-oncological patients, yet nuclear medicine physicians may have only limited practical experience of rare diseases. Furthermore, the more frequent use of PET-CT scans is accompanied by an increasing likelihood of encountering rare findings that may be difficult to recognize and interpret. Against this background, this unique atlas documents a large number of clinical cases that will help practitioners to identify findings and diseases that, though rare, are sufficiently frequent to be encountered in routine practice. Two types of cases are presented: patients evaluated for rare diseases and patients evaluated for standard diseases in whom atypical collateral PET findings were detected. Each reported case includes a brief description of the clinical history, representative color PET-CT images obtained using FDG or other tracers, a short explanation of the disease and findings, and, when necessary, relevant references. This atlas will support practitioners in their daily practice and enable them to make conclusive reports of PET-CT scans that would otherwise have been inconclusive!

Abstract
This seventh volume of the essential series covering practices and developments relating to CNS tumors zeroes in on those found in the brain. Detailed dossiers on meningioma and schwannoma tumors cover aspects including diagnosis, therapy and prognosis. The text delivers vital insights into the molecular pathways related to brain tumor biology, including a detailed analysis of the roles played in neoplasm formation by E-cadherin gene instability, carbonic anhydrase 11, urokinase plasminogen activator, and Wnt signaling. Further research into their influence in the process could prompt the development of effective anti-cancer drugs. The contributions also show how perfusion magnetic resonance imaging helps physicians differentiate between subtypes of meningiomas, and analyze the influence of molecular genetics and epigenetic mechanisms on schwannoma tumors. Among the diagnostic processes outlined are those for recognizing incidentally discovered meningioma, cystic papillary meningioma, facial nerve schwannoma, vestibular schwannoma, and intermediate nerve schwannoma. This book presents treatments for atypical, oncocytic, intracranial, and cavernous meningiomas, as well as guides to therapeutic methods ranging from neurosurgery and gamma-knife radiosurgery to vestibular schwannoma interventions such as retrosigmoidal craniotomy and immunotherapy. This authoritative volume once again provides invaluable and tightly focused source material for medical professionals committed to placing the latest theories and techniques at the service of those they care for.

This book discusses the full range of current applications of computer-assisted surgery and robotics in the field of knee surgery, and also considers potential future applications. The impact of computer-assisted surgery on a wide range of surgical procedures is clearly explained. Procedures considered include total knee arthroplasty, unicompartmental knee arthroplasty, cruciate ligament reconstruction, patellofemoral arthroplasty, and revision surgery In each case, technical aspects are thoroughly addressed in a readily understandable manner. Knee Surgery Using Computer-Assisted Surgery and Robotics will be an ideal guide to this exciting field for both novice and more experienced surgeons who treat knee injuries and disorders.

Over the last two decades, the increasing use of noninvasive ventilation (NIV) has reduced the need for endotracheal ventilation, thus decreasing the rate of ventilation-induced complications. Thus, NIV has decreased both intubation rates and mortality rates in specific subsets of patients with acute respiratory failure (for example, patients with hypercapnia, cardiogenic pulmonary edema, immune deficiencies, or post-transplantation acute respiratory failure). Despite the increased use of NIV i…

Abstract
Over the last two decades, the increasing use of noninvasive ventilation (NIV) has reduced the need for endotracheal ventilation, thus decreasing the rate of ventilation-induced complications. Thus, NIV has decreased both intubation rates and mortality rates in specific subsets of patients with acute respiratory failure (for example, patients with hypercapnia, cardiogenic pulmonary edema, immune deficiencies, or post-transplantation acute respiratory failure). Despite the increased use of NIV in clinical practice, there is still a need for more educational tools to improve clinicians' knowledge of the indications and contraindications for NIV, the factors that predict failure or success, and also what should be considered when starting NIV. This book has the dual function of being a "classical" text where the major findings in the literature are discussed and highlighted, as well as a practical manual on the tricks and pitfalls to consider in NIV application by both beginners and experts. For example, setting the ventilatory parameters; choosing the interfaces, circuits, and humidification systems; monitoring; and the "right " environment for the "right" patient will be discussed to help clinicians in their choices.
