This practical book provides up-to-date information on the particular features of ovarian cancer in older women and the best management approach. The full range of relevant topics is covered. Guidance is provided on geriatric assessment, screening, pathology, diagnosis, and follow-up. The various treatment options are carefully explained, covering surgical approaches, chemotherapy as a first-line strategy, the use of anti-angiogenic agents, and treatment of relapse. The cognitive problems that may arise in elderly women during and after treatment of ovarian cancer are documented, with advice on response. Guidance is also provided on the design of clinical trials, and current directions in biological research are reviewed. This book will be of value to both practitioners and researchers with an interest in ovarian cancer and the elderly.​

Ovarian cancer is the most common cause of death among all gynecological neoplasms. Ovarian epithelial cancer represents approximately 90% of all ovarian malignant tumours. The most usual pattern of spread and probably the earliest kind of metastasis of ovarian cancer is intraperitoneal spread, caused by apoptosis of viable cancer cells, even in cases where the ovarian surface has no visible rupture. Approximately 70% to 75% of all ovarian cancers are being diagnosed with peritoneal carcinomatosis and ascites in advanced stages III and IV. Peritoneal carcinomatosis from ovarian cancer may occur either concomitantly with the primary tumour or as a recurrence pattern of spread. Standard treatment consists of surgical debulking and postoperative systemic chemotherapy. Response rates to first-line chemotherapy with platinum/taxane combinations are high, about 70-80%, but the vast majority of patients will relapse. Peritoneal seeding is a major cause of surgical treatment failure among those patients, even after optimal debulking. However, progressing ovarian cancer tends to remain within the peritoneal cavity or, better-expressed, ovarian cancer is a cancer of the peritoneum. The administration of cytotoxic agents directly into the peritoneal cavity as treatment for malignancy was initially evaluated more than 40 years ago. Over the past two decades regional therapy of ovarian cancer has evolved from just an interesting pharmacokinetic concept into a viable management option for women with advanced disease. Several authors, and among them some of the world's leading experts on this field present the current knowledge and their experience on peritoneal carcinomatosis from ovarian cancer.

Hardbound. This scientific update has been produced as a result of a meeting held in Paris in January 1997, under the auspices of EONS (European Oncology Nursing Society) and ESO (European School of Oncology), where experts from medical and nursing fields gave presentations and discussed the problems relating to cancer in the elderly.Cancer is predominantly a disease of old age and the incidence of cancer is, therefore, greater in the older section of the population. Yet our knowledge of elderly-specific treatment regimens and nursing interventions is poor. Epidemiological studies show that the number of elderly people, and thus the number of cases of cancer, will increase dramatically over the next 25 years.This update seeks to examine current knowledge and practice of cancer care for the elderly, to highlight inadequacies and to point to ways in which practice may be improved and future research contribute to our understanding of cancer in the eld

A state-of-the-art, multidisciplinary approach to cancer and aging With the majority of cancers occurring in individuals over the age of 65 against a backdrop of an expanding aging population, there is an urgent need to integrate the areas of clinical oncology and geriatric care. This timely work tackles these issues head-on, presenting a truly multidisciplinary and international perspective on cancer and aging from world-renowned experts in geriatrics, oncology, behavioral science, psychology, gerontology, and public health. Unlike other books on geriatric oncology that focus mainly on treatment, Cancer and Aging Handbook: Research and Practice examines all phases of the cancer care continuum, from prevention through evidence-based diagnosis and treatment to end-of-life care. Detailed clinical and research information helps guide readers on effective patient care as well as caregiver training, research, and intervention. Coverage includes: Epidemiology of cancer in older adults, plus the unique physical, mental, and social issues involved Strategies and guidelines for prevention, screening, and treatment of older individuals with cancer The most common cancers in the elderly, including breast, colorectal, lung, prostate, and ovarian cancer Cancer survivorship in older adults as well as the all-critical issues of palliative care and pain management Emerging topics such as caregiver and family issues, different models of care, and cost considerations An essential resource for clinicians and caregivers as well as researchers interested in this evolving field, Cancer and Aging Handbook is also useful for public health professionals and policymakers who need to formulate services and allocate resources for the growing population of older cancer patients.
