Gastrointestinal (GI) cancers account for nearly 150,000 deaths each year, in the United States alone. Encouragingly, environmental risk factors, premalignant conditions, and high-risk familial kindreds are well described for many GI cancers. In this comprehensive volume on GI Neoplasia, all luminal cancers will be discussed, along with pancreas cancer, gastrointestinal stromal tumors (GISTs), carcinoid tumors, and neuroendocrine tumors. Hepatobiliary cancers are not addressed, as these tumors could form the basis of a separate volume. Articles are organized to address several key topics for each cancer type, such as: public health burden, molecular pathways, risk and protective factors, early detection, clinical evaluation, management, and survivorship.

Due to recent advances in endoscopy and radiology, there is increased recognition of the prevalence and biological characteristics of neoplastic precursor lesions in the GI tract, liver, biliary tract, and pancreas. As a result, there have been major recent developments in the pathologic classification, diagnosis, molecular pathogenesis, natural history and treatment of these lesions. In addition, there are controversial issues with regard to the value of endoscopic screening and surveillance. A close clinician-pathologist interaction is essential in the management of preneoplastic lesions. In this issue the pathology, biological properties, pathogenesis, natural history, and current treatment recommendations of the major preneoplastic and dysplastic precursor lesions of the GI tract, liver, biliary tract and pancreas are reviewed in detail. Wherever possible, accent is given to controversial diagnostic and management-related issues. Each subject matter is written by experts in the field, all of whom have had research experience in their respective areas.

Nonpolypoid Colorectal Neoplasms In Inflammatory Bowel Disease An Issue Of Gastrointestinal Endoscopy Clinics

Dr Roy Soetikno and Dr Tonya Kaltenbach are the editors for this issue of Gastrointestinal Endoscopy Clinics of North America, which is devoted to the improved detection and management of early neoplasia in inflammatory bowel disease. An important aspect of Dr Soetikno’s outstanding career has been the bridging of endoscopic methods between Japan and the United States. Endoscopists in Japan have a better record of detecting subtle flat GI lesions. From the earliest days of endoscopy, it is fair to say that Japanese endoscopists have emphasized visual identification, analysis, and photo documentation of small GI lesions. The colon has been no exception. Dr Soetikno has incorporated these techniques, which have become increasingly feasible with steady improvement in modern digital endoscopes. Identifying small flat premalignant lesions and early cancers in patients with colitis can be lifesaving. Dr Soetikno and Dr Kaltenbach have edited an extraordinary issue of the Gastrointestinal Endoscopy Clinics of North America devoted to teaching and promulgating these methods, including an extensive photo atlas, which should be an invaluable resource for all academic specialists and practicing gastroenterologists.
