Basics of Cryosurgery specializes in the fundamentals of modern cryosurgery. It is dedicated to surgeons and all doctors and specialists throughout the world - especially those working in cryosurgery and cryotechnology, who, in their devotion to advancing medical science, are helping patients in their fight against malignant tumours. This book presents what is currently known in contemporary cryosurgery. It aims to contribute to the further development of this branch of medicine, which is set to become indispensable in treating patients. 'Basics of Cryosurgery' compiles, in one source, all available scientific data on the theoretical, experimental, and clinical investigations that have been undertaken in the field of cryosurgery. The chapters were written by authorities in the field who have not only experienced the triumphs but have learnt from their own and others' failures, and how to avoid these, and who have helped many patients to escape what had previously seemed an inevitable outcome.
