About this book

Introduction

The "Atlas of Cryosurgery” is the first publication to document the modern era of this discipline. The use of low temperatures to destroy abnormal tissues, the basis of cryosurgery, is now being successfully applied in many branches of medicine, especially in the treatment of different malignancies. This atlas aims at presenting the fundamental aspects of modern cryosurgery and the advantages it offers to cancer patients compared to conventional surgical approaches. The presentation includes definitions of the most frequently used terms, short descriptions of the historical and scientific background of cryosurgery as well as an outline of cryosurgical equipment and techniques. Given, too, is the whole spectrum of experimental and clinical cryosurgery and the results of cryosurgical treatment of tumors in, for example, the liver, lung, or skin and bone. Over 1200, mostly colored illustrations collected from a wide variety of international sources, serve to demonstrate the cryosurgical approach.
