Following on from the first book entitled 'Conservative treatment of Male Urinary Incontinence and Erectile Dysfunction' this book has been expanded to include seven new chapters and existing chapters have been extensively updated. It is written primarily for those specialist continence physiotherapists who are unsure of the treatment for male patients with lower urinary tract symptoms.
The classification of male urinary incontinence has been restructured in line with the International Continence Society standardisation of terminology. The subjective and objective physiotherapy assessment is covered chronologically, to enable the clinician to conduct a meaningful investigation and arrive at a logical diagnosis.
This book covers all the practical issues related to the interpretation of prostatic biopsies in day-to-day practice, including: biopsy sampling and processing; the diagnosis of limited cancer; differentiation of prostate cancers from benign lesions and recognition of histologic variants; the recognition and clinical significance of atypical diagnoses and HGPIN; the identification of recently described entities; the contemporary approach to Gleason grading; the utility of immunohistochemical markers and emerging molecular markers; and the reporting of prostate biopsies. Algorithms, flow charts, and tables are used throughout to simulate the thought and decision-making process upon encountering common clinical scenarios during sign-out of prostate biopsy. The book is richly illustrated with carefully selected, high-quality color images and will appeal especially to practicing surgical pathologists as well as pathology residents and fellows in training.
This book sheds new light on the physiology, molecular biology and pathophysiology of epithelial ion channels and transporters. It combines the basic cellular models and functions by means of a compelling clinical perspective, addressing aspects from the laboratory bench to the bedside. The individual chapters, written by leading scientists and clinicians, explore specific ion channels and transporters located in the epithelial tissues of the kidney, intestine, pancreas and respiratory tract, all of which play a crucial part in maintaining homeostasis. Further topics include the fundamentals of epithelial transport; mathematical modeling of ion transport; cell volume regulation; membrane protein folding and trafficking; transepithelial transport functions; and lastly, a discussion of transport proteins as potential pharmacological targets with a focus on the pharmacology of potassium channels.
This volume focuses on those rare congenital or acquired kidney pathologies that are localized in only one part of the organ, while the rest of the organ remains unaffected. It helps readers identify the segmentary stage of the disease and discusses in-depth possible conservative surgical approaches: partial nephrectomy, calicectomy and lobectomy. It is a valuable resource for urologists, nephrologists and surgeons as well as researchers and practitioners involved in the field.
Kidney stone is a significant disease with a 12-15% prevalence in the United States. Patients with a history of stones have a 50% risk of making another stone in 5 years or 80% risk in their lifetime. The goal of this book is to educate the reader on the nuts and bolts of stone disease and to provide new and updated information to help them tackle this painful disease.
Over the past decade, the understanding of the processes involved in the regulation of gonadotropin-releasing hormone and its dysfunction has greatly increased. As new regulatory peptides have been identified, the underlying causes of central hypogonadism have multiplied, and the area has become increasingly complex. The reversibility of even genetically determined hypogonadotropic hypogonadism has become more firmly established, and clinical studies have greatly expanded our understanding of basic physiological pathways. Structuring this mass of new knowledge in thirteen comprehensive chapters, a group of renowned experts, representing the principal international research groups, take stock of the most recent progress. This up-to-date overview helps scientists and clinicians to plan future research and treat patients with delayed puberty, hypogonadotropic hypogonadism and other forms of central reproductive disorders.

This thesis focuses on the synthesis and vaccine evaluation of the prostate tumor- associated carbohydrate antigen RM2. The author first presents the use of the [1+2+3] one-pot sequential strategy to successfully synthesise the RM2 antigen and its analogues as single stereoisomers in every glycosylation step, producing good yields and stereoselectivity. He then introduces the conjugation of the synthetic RM2 antigen to the carrier protein CRM197 in an average number of 1-10 to create the prostate cancer vaccine candidate, which is combined with -galactosylceramide C1, its analogue C34, or Alu. The results of the vaccination studies in mice are also described and indicate that the strongest anti-RM2 antigen titer is exhibited when one molecule of diphtheria toxin (DT) is conjugated with an average of 4.7 molecules of RM2 antigen (DT-RM4.7) and adjuvanted with the glycolipid C34. More importantly, the induced mouse antibodies mediate the effective complement-dependent cytotoxicity (CDC) against the prostate cancer cell line LNCap. The study presented in this thesis is the first ever to successfully synthesize this complex glycan molecule. Owing to the steric hindrance of the adjacent sialyl moiety, the introduction of two sialic acid units to the compact and rigid 3,4 di branched galactoside unit is very challenging and the ss-selective and efficient glycosylation of the galactosamine moiety at the 4-position of di branched galactose is also problematic.
Treatment of Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia: Modern Techniques is an up-to-date review of modern techniques used to treat benign prostatic hyperplasia. It provides a comprehensive review of both office and operating room based techniques. Both electrosurgical and laser based techniques are covered. These include high powered 532 nm laser photoselective laser vaporization of the prostate (PVP), holmium laser enucleation/ablation of the prostate (HoLEP/HoLAP), and Bipolar Electrovaporization of the Prostate (Bipolar EVP/Bipolar TURP). In addition, a comprehensive review of office based techniques and future therapies currently being developed is presented. Each of these techniques are presented in a balanced fashion with a focus on modern literature. Treatment of Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia: Modern Techniques will be of great value to Urologists, Urology Residents, Iternists, and Family Practitioners.

Kidney Transplants are the most frequently performed solid organ transplants. Pancreas transplantation offers unique survival and quality of life benefits to selected diabetics with or without concomitant renal failure. Usually, kidney and pancreas transplant recipients are managed by the same team of physicians and surgeons. Current textbooks dealing with kidney and pancreas transplantation are unfortunately usually in the form of introductory manuals or primers and lack crucial practical detail and scientific depth relevant to the practicing physician. The transplant physicians and surgeons at Cleveland Clinic have collaborated to produce a textbook devoted to kidney and pancreas transplantation that addresses the need for a work that is well grounded in scientific principles, quantitative clinical reasoning, clinical pharmacology, tested clinical practices and overall clinical applicability. Also addressed are key aspects in the initiation, maintenance and sustained growth of viable clinical programs in kidney and pancreas transplantation.
