Abstract
From reviews of the First Edition: For the practitioner new to the field of implantable therapies, this book shows the scope of this particular branch of pain medicine. It is full of good advice on techniques and how to avoid complications." British Journal of Clinical Pharmacology "All practicing pain physicians, whether their background is in anesthesia or neurosurgery, will find [this atlas] very useful... beautifully written and well-illustrated with x-ray images and pictures... a must-read for every pain fellow and a very useful one for every pain physician." Doody's Review Service. Now in its Second Edition, this atlas remains an essential guide to the treatment of pain using neuromodulation and is written for all implanters, from beginners to the most advanced practitioners. It has been significantly expanded with many brand new chapters and figures and thoroughly updated to address new techniques, targets, waveforms, and concepts that have emerged since publication of the last edition and now provides even more detailed coverage of patient safety, including infection control and reduction of bleeding risks. The new and returning physicians who have collaborated on the Second Edition are world-class in their research, clinical expertise, and ethics of practice. They have endeavored to make each segment of the atlas a great learning event through careful integration of extensive photographs, illustrations, and detailed instructions and to create a resource that helps to improve practice and enhance outcomes while complementing fellowship training, peer-to-peer experiences, and hands-on continuing medical education.

Abstract
Cancer remains a major challenge for medicine and it continues to claim lives and cause great suffering. Pain is a symptom experienced by mostá cancer patients regardless of disease stage, and less than 50% of cancer pain patients achieve effective pain and symptom control though available therapies. If these therapies are utilized correctly, many more patients can achieve effective control. While opioids are still seen as the mainstay of cancer pain treatment, it is necessary to examine whether this treatment strategy still holds true in the 21st century. Cancer Pain provides a comprehensive, up-to-date, practical guide to the management of pain in cancer patients. The book provides a clear, concise explanation of cancer pain syndromes, a modern understanding of the pathophysiological mechanism and an overview of recent developments in creating pre-clinical cancer pain models. It offers the reader the wide and improved options for management of cancer pain in clinical practice, including the use of opioid and non-opioid drugs, and defines the role of non-pharmacological methods for pain control. Cancer Pain also provides an overview of the latest developments in the management of cancer, which have major implications for the current and future thinking in cancer pain treatment strategy. This text is an invaluable resource for doctors, trainees and clinical nurse specialists in palliative medicine and oncology, and would be of interest to anyone who wishes to gain a better understanding of the complex nature of cancer pain and the tools available to alleviate it.
