What men with prostate cancer really want-the guarantee of a long, healthy life with their prostate cancer definitively behind them-is not available. There is no crystal ball that can forecast the certain, good outcome that every man hopes for, not even for those who will ultimately get the result they want. In Managing Prostate Cancer, Dr. Andrew Roth teaches strategies for how to live better with the questions and decisions that arise from prostate cancer. A psychiatrist who has specialized in helping people to cope with these challenges for over twenty years, Dr. Roth provides clear and understandable advice for patients, their loved ones, and healthcare givers. With his guidance, men and their families will learn how to manage the psychological stressors of a new cancer diagnosis. Dr. Roth shows men how to navigate what feel like impossible treatment choices, and to handle the emotional ups and downs of active surveillance and anxiety about prostate-specific antigen (PSA) tests. Patients will also learn mechanisms for accepting and adapting to the consequences of their cancer treatment, which may include the physical complications of urinary, erectile, or bowel dysfunction, fatigue, and hot flashes, as well as the demoralizing recurrence of disease after treatment. Dr. Roth clearly addresses issues that are not easily discussed yet can bring significant suffering. Men receive valuable tips on how to manage the impact of the cancer and its treatment on their social, sexual, and intimate relationships and behaviors. Finally, Dr. Roth provides gentle, wise guidance for men with advanced prostate cancer about becoming realistic yet invaluable role models for children, grandchildren, and friends. Dr. Roth shows men and their families how to face the end of life with improved self-esteem and sense of worth. The book will also assist oncology teams to address complex issues of coping and to communicate more constructively with their patients.
Operative urology has evolved in recent years to include laparoscopic and robot-assisted surgical procedures, which have resulted in significant improvements in quality of life-related outcome. Nevertheless, training methods in urologic laparoscopy and robot-assisted surgery vary considerably, and a structured training scheme is required to enable the modern urologist to adapt to and make optimal use of these techniques. Accordingly, the main goal of this surgical atlas is to guide the urologist carefully through all the standard laparoscopic and robot-assisted procedures. Each procedure is presented in detail with numerous supporting endoscopic images and diagrams. The reader is thereby acquainted with the different surgical steps and will acquire the knowledge necessary for reliable reproduction of the techniques in clinical practice.

This comprehensive book reviews our current state of knowledge about the pathogenesis of idiopathic nephrotic syndrome (INS), which comprises a heterogeneous group of diseases with distinct histological characteristics, such as minimal-change nephrotic syndrome (MCNS), focal segmental glomerulosclerosis (FSGS), and idiopathic membranous nephropathy (IMN). As the word "idiopathic" indicates, the pathogenesis of INS remains unclear. Historically, T-cell dysfunction has been thought to play an important part in the pathogenesis of MCNS, while circulating vascular permeabilities have been believed to induce proteinuria in FSGS. The book further describes recent advances in molecular biology, which have allowed us to speculate on the interactions between visceral glomerular epithelial cells (podocytes) and the relative significance of several molecules in the pathogenesis of INS, such as reactive oxygen species, nuclear factor-kappa B, CD80, angiopoietin-like 4, cardiotrophin-like cytokine-1, and M-type phospholipase A2 receptor. The normally rapid pace of scientific progress occasionally devolves into a state of chaos, and the pathogenetic research on INS is one such case. This volume will help researchers and scientists to collaborate, share resources, and expedite the design of protocols to evaluate the putative factors.
