This book will explore and explain the best diagnostic and treatment strategies for men with a big prostate. Men are living longer and the opportunity to develop significant benign prostatic hyperplasia is increasing. Men with very large prostates can often be extremely challenging to manage and all urologists and healthcare professionals carrying out general urology and managing men with prostate problems will have come across this issue. There are a number of diagnostic, interventional, and surgical management options available, with some of these being more suited to a large prostate than others. The various treatment strategies and their evidence base are discussed. Valuable tips from expert authors who are experienced in the management of the particularly large prostate are included to allow readers to be confident when managing this increasingly important and prevalent group of patients. This book is of particular use to healthcare practitioners who manage men with BPH in the outpatient or emergency setting, as well as those in the operating theatre who want further tips on how to deal with the particularly big prostate.
The aim of this book is to educate clinicians and basic scientists in the multiple roles that bacteria have as causative as well as therapeutic agents in urologic disease. Within this scope, clinicians will be introduced and educated about the basic mechanisms of bacterial pathogenesis that lead to disease, as well as the non-pathogenic mechanisms that contribute to the prevention and treatment of patients. Conversely, basic scientists will be educated about the clinical implications of bacterial based therapeutics and infections. By combining the basic science and clinical views, this book will serve to bring both basic scientists and clinicians onto an even plain that may raise ideas for future collaborative research.
Minimally invasive surgical techniques are moving into the mainstream of urological practice. Even less invasive techniques, some of which can involve no use of the knife whatsoever, are rapidly being developed and implemented for treating urological cancer. Interventional Techniques in Uro-oncology is the first text to cover these techniques in total and provides a comprehensive review of the state-of-the-art minimally invasive interventions. This well-illustrated reference provides the basic science behind each technique before explaining when and how best to perform them. It examines their use in different clinical settings, the advantages and disadvantages of each technique in the management of specific tumor types, and their suitability for different patients. Future techniques are discussed including the potential of nanotechnology in the delivery of urologic healthcare. Each chapter is easy to navigate with key points and references. Interventional Techniques in Uro-oncology is an essential reference for training and practicing oncologists, urologists and radiologists as well as the general physician with a keen interest in cancer care. Its approachable style will also inform non-experts on what is available and whether a particular intervention is suitable for their patient in the clinic.

This atlas is designed to present a comprehensive and state-of the-art approach to single surgical procedure - adrenal glands surgery. The idea of this surgical atlas is to bring expertise of adrenal surgery to all surgeons performing, or learning how to perform successful adrenalectomy procedure, and to illustrate different techniques of adrenalectomy that are performed by different renown surgeons. The atlas illustrates several different approaches to adrenalectomy, which include more commonly used anterior lateral adrenalectomy and more advanced newer techniques of posterior retroperitoneoscopic and robotic adrenalectomies. This atlas emphasizes different approaches and ways to perform the same procedure. Specifically how the same procedure could be successfully completed by different surgeons with specific details of each technique. Each approach is presented by three different expert-surgeons illustrating three different techniques of procedure, including single-site approach. Different surgeons have different "tricks" on how to perform this type of procedure successfully. Each chapter presents procedures that are performed and illustrated by a different single surgeon. All authors are members of American Association of Endocrine Surgeons (AAES) and are experts in this specific technique. This atlas includes 18 chapters and illustrates traditional open approach, anterior lateral right and left adrenalectomy approaches, and more advanced state-of the-art posterior retroperitoneoscopic right and left adrenalectomies (including single port procedure) and robotic adrenalectomies. The text includes extensive illustrations and links to video of all procedures making this an interactive text. Atlas of Adrenal Surgery represents the first single source to provide information on technique and outcomes for a diversity of endocrine surgeons, minimally invasive laparoscopic surgeons, surgical oncologists, urologists and general surgeons.
This book is intended to help plug the gap in the present library
of urological texts, and should be a useful aid to revision and
preparation for the FRCS(Urol) intercollegiate examination and
probably other urological examinations. Based on the assumption
that the reader has a basic understanding of core urology, the text
primarily covers topics that may be encountered infrequently during
training, are currently considered controversial, or are likely to
spring to the mind of an examiner.
