Some very significant developments in cancer surgery and treatment have transpired
over the last few years. The veterinary sector has seen a steady increase in the number
of pets diagnosed with neoplasms due to advances in current diagnostic procedures.
Therefore, this book is based on our clinical experience in the operating theatre, with the
aim being to share our expertise and provide a guiding reference for when it is time to put
theory into practice. We have sought to equip veterinary surgeons and students alike with
helpful tools, so they may cure or improve the quality of life of the pets in their care now or
in the near future.
The opening chapter features a brief introduction with the relevant oncological considerations,
before explaining diagnostic methods such as biopsies, possible treatments and
the rudiments of surgical oncology applicable in each case. Subsequent chapters are
structured according to anatomical areas and the different organ systems. Each section
addresses the most common neoplasms and presents several clinical cases, including
a detailed description of their surgical treatment accompanied by an abundance of photographs
and explanatory videos. Each case is complemented with a short discussion or
conclusion at the end.
Some clinical cases (e.g. the most commonly detected tumours) focus on a specific area
of the body due to the neoplasm’s higher prevalence in this area. In addition to macroscopic
photos of surgeries, each case is illustrated with microscopic images from the corresponding
cytological or histopathological diagnostic studies.
We were compelled to produce this work in light of the elevated number of cases currently
being diagnosed, coupled with the intricacy of some interventions and the shortage of
subject-specific reference books. Besides the multitude of images and high-quality audiovisual
materials, the text is also supported by diagrams and drawings, where necessary,
as well as practical recommendations and summary boxes highlighting the key points for
each surgical technique.
While it is a book about surgery and specialised veterinary surgeons will extract the most
benefit from it, the extensive graphical material will also prove extremely useful for novice
and less experienced surgeons, since most vets regularly operate on mammary and simple
tumours. It is worth emphasising the importance of managing all tumours, no matter
how small they may be, because if they are not treated correctly, they could affect the
patient’s chance of survival.

KEY FEATURES:
• Step-by-step images of surgical procedures.
• High technical quality illustrations and diagrams.
• Links to videos of the surgical techniques used or of the patient’s clinical signs.
• Practical tips.
