Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Matthew D. Volm, MD (Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine)
Description: This book is the fourth edition of a paperback handbook that provides suggested follow-up routines for cancer patients.
Purpose: Its purpose is to assist physicians in formulating a schedule of office visits and tests for a wide variety of patients after primary cancer therapy.
Audience: The book is written for medical and surgical oncologists and primary care physicians, although the main audience appears to be primary care physicians. The contributors are nationally known experts in their fields.
Features: The book consists of two pages of information in a standard format on more than 100 malignant disorders, common and rare. The first page provides a brief overview of incidence, survival, risk factors, pathology, major metastatic sites, associated malignancies, therapy, and recommendations for the patient and family. The second page is a suggested follow-up schedule for return visits and tests.
Assessment: Although the book includes material on a large number of malignancies, its usefulness is limited by its lack of depth and focus on those cancers in which careful follow-up is most important. In addition, the need for an individual follow-up plan tailored to the circumstances of each patient precludes relying on a standard schedule of tests and office visits. Nonetheless, the book is a useful reference and should be a helpful point of departure for physicians involved in formulating follow-up plans for cancer patients.

A revised and updated translation from the original Russian work published in 1990, Novobirsk, Nauka. Gives a systematic account of complexes of differential operators on differentiable manifolds, for mathematicians, physicists, and engineers. The main topic is the study of general complexes of differential operators between sections of vector bundles. Treats, to some degree, all of the following directions within the general theory: the formal theory, the existence theory, the problem of global solvability, overdetermined boundary problems, the generalized Lefschetz theory of fixed points, and the qualitative theory of solutions of overdetermined systems. Considerable attention is given to connections and parallels with the theory of functions of several complex variables. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
