Also AME Publishing Company, once again, demonstrated its extreme entrepreneurship, believing in the project and carefully curing it with a meticulous print apparel. The reading of this book should be suggested to all the researchers of thymic disorders and I’m sure this book will become a landmark text on this field.
Pier Luigi Filosso
This book illustrates the remarkable results in the study of TET that have been accomplished through collaborative projects at regional and global level. Many of these projects were only possible thanks to established retrospective and prospective regional and international databases. These concerted efforts built a solid foundation for future projects such as the molecular study of TET and studies towards standardized and personal treatment of patients with these tumors amongst other projects. “More Hands Produce Stronger Flames!”
Anja C. Roden
More hands build a higher flame. This book is not yet a comprehensive text that would solve all problems in the related area. Yet, it represents the state of the art in the management of thymic tumors and collected wisdom from colleagues in different specialties related to this interesting and important disease. The contents included here would be helpful for all medical professionals and researchers in the field and better inspire those interested to probe further for continuing improvement.
This book represents a compilation of manuscripts that reflect recent contributions to the literature regarding thymic tumors. Several of these studies have resulted from analyses performed using the aforementioned large datasets compiled by investigators from all over the world, while others represent literature reviews by recognized experts in the field of thymic tumors, or single institutional experiences. Topics range from treatment strategies for complex cases to the technical aspects of cutting edge surgical techniques.
Robert J. Korst
With the publication of this book, we sincerely hope the clinical research team on mediastinal tumors, in attempt to be one of the top teams worldwide, will follow the rules of modern medical sciences, focus their efforts on their goals, and strive for new breakthroughs in the diagnosis and treatment of thymic tumors
