Abstract
This book provides up-to-date information on all aspects of ductal carcinoma in situ of the breast, including epidemiology, imaging, pathologic and biologic features, interventional diagnostics, nonpalpable lesion localization, and treatment. Surgical procedures are described in detail, covering breast conservation techniques, conservative mastectomies, breast reconstruction options, and axillary surgery. Guidance is provided on how to ensure adequacy of surgical excision and avoid local recurrence when performing breast conservation surgery and how to minimize morbidity from axillary surgery. The role and techniques of partial and whole breast irradiation are described, and the use of adjuvant systemic therapy options, including endocrine therapy and chemotherapy, is explained. A concluding chapter addresses the issue of recurrence and its current management. This book, designed for ease of consultation, will be of value for all involved in the multidisciplinary care of patients with ductal carcinoma in situ of the breast, including surgeons, medical oncologists, pathologists, radiologists, and radiotherapists.

This volume elucidates state-of-the-art findings of uterine fibroids and adenomyosis, incorporating expert basic knowledge. Uterine fibroids and adenomyosis are common uterine tumors in reproductive-age women. However, the pathogenesis of the tumors is still poorly understood, and both genetic and environmental factors may be involved in their generation or development. Recent research on the genomics and molecular biology of uterine fibroids and adenomyosis has facilitated a better understandi…

Abstract
This volume elucidates state-of-the-art findings of uterine fibroids and adenomyosis, incorporating expert basic knowledge. Uterine fibroids and adenomyosis are common uterine tumors in reproductive-age women. However, the pathogenesis of the tumors is still poorly understood, and both genetic and environmental factors may be involved in their generation or development. Recent research on the genomics and molecular biology of uterine fibroids and adenomyosis has facilitated a better understanding of the pathogenesis and pathophysiology of these benign tumors. Renowned experts provide detailed discussions of basic research and clinical aspects of uterine fibroids and adenomyosis in this book, from histopathology and molecular pathogenesis to diagnosis and the latest treatment of uterine fibroids, including pregnancy complications of adenomyosis. A great deal of information and a deep understanding of molecular and genetic biology have led to development of more innovative treatments of these tumors. Thus this book benefits not only oncologists, seasoned gynecologists, and obstetricians, but also molecular biologists and other basic researchers who are involved in the treatment of uterine fibroids.
