This book offers a comprehensive evaluation of the use of stereotactic body radiosurgery (SBRT) for the treatment of prostate cancer. The rationale, selection criteria, and treatment planning for prostate SBRT are explained. Important imaging and anatomic considerations are discussed, and detailed consideration devoted to organ motion and tumor tracking during SBRT. Outcomes of therapy are then examined, with thorough appraisal of side effect profiles and quality of life impacts. Clear guidance is provided on how to deliver the therapy in a way that minimizes the risk of long-term urinary and rectal toxicities. Stereotactic radiosurgery for prostate cancer is an increasingly used form of treatment. Retrospective investigations have demonstrated the safe application of high-dose treatments, with 5-year results comparable to those achieved with protracted external beam radiotherapy. Prospective studies are underway comparing SBRT with more traditional forms of image-guided and intensity-modulated radiotherapy. In offering in-depth guidance on safe delivery of prostate SBRT, this book will be of value for students of radiation oncology, more experienced practitioners, and medical physicists.

This book addresses knowledge gaps in RARP in 3 key sections: 1) Step-by-step approach including multiple technique options and innovations, 2) Patient selection, safety, outcomes, and 3) Preparing the patient for surgery. The order is more based upon knowledge priority rather than a chronologic sequence in which part 3 would go first. Part two allows more summary and commentary on evidence and part three allows some creative content that is otherwise hard to find in one place-medical evaluations, imaging, clinical trials, patient education, etc. This textbook emphasizes content for the advanced skills surgeon in that multiple techniques are presented as well as state of the art evidence. The learning curve is addressed and the authors clarify how this text is useful for learners. The caveat is that they should be careful in patient selection and stick with what their mentors are showing them. With experience, they can then branch out into the many techniques presented here. Robot-Assisted Radical Prostatectomy: Beyond the Learning Curve will also have cross-over appeal for surgical assistants, physician assistants, nurses, and anyone else involved in the surgical care of prostate cancer.

This book offers a practical surgical guide, helping surgeons learn the technique needed to perform Laparoscopic SacroColpoPexy (LSCP). To do so, it explains the surgical process in straightforward language, supplemented by images and diagrams, while also discussing why this procedure is so effective. The book has two primary goals: to provide those surgeons who have never performed LSCP before with essential insights and technical expertise, based on the author's 20 years of practical surgical experience; and to allay the common fear of possible complications. Following a 2012 FDA warning, surgeons whose work involved vaginal prolapse repair have been looking for an alternative technique. Though LSCP offers a safe alternative to current methods, the available literature on it is sparse. This book provides a comprehensive guide to the techniques and methods needed by surgeons operating on pelvic organ prolapse in a range of different specialties, including urogynecology, urology, and gynecology.

Acute kidney injury (AKI), defined as an abrupt decrease in renal function over a period of hours to days, is a common complication among hospitalised patients with different acute diseases. Its incidence has been increasing in recent years and is reported to be very high especially in the acute settings. Since clinical signs and symptoms of acute renal damage are not specific, it is difficult to promptly distinguish AKI at the time of patient presentation. Currently the diagnosis of AKI requires serial assessment of laboratory tests over a period of several days, and is based mainly on the evaluation of serum creatinine (sCr) and decrease in urine output as supported by Risk, Injury, Failure, Loss, and End-Stage Kidney Disease (RIFLE) criteria, Acute Kidney Injury Network (AKIN) criteria, and the recent Kidney Disease: Improving Global Outcomes (KDIGO) practice guidelines for AKI. Such a need for repeated sCr evaluations and monitoring of urinary output for too long time after admission could therefore result in a diagnostic delay. With delays in diagnosis, clinicians miss opportunities to start appropriate treatment to minimise damage, and patients incur more severe AKI with subsequent greater risk of developing progression of renal damage leading to chronic kidney disease (CKD), dialysis and increased risk of severe cardiovascular diseases and death.
