Systemic Treatment  of Prostate Cancer (Paperback): Alan Horwich Systemic Treatment of Prostate Cancer (Paperback)
Alan Horwich
R510 Discovery Miles 5 100 Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

Prostate cancer is one of the commonest cancers in men in the western world, and the prevalence is rising currently due to improvements in screening and treatment. Serum PSA represents a useful marker of disease. It has frequently a long natural history, creating the opportunities for multiple sequential therapeutic interventions. For patients with high risk local disease or with metastases, endocrine therapy is central to management. Hormone ablation has long been the mainstay of endocrine therapy in this group of patients, though anti-androgens, oestrogens, and corticosteroids can also cause remissions. In recent years effective and well-tolerated chemotherapy regimens have been developed and evaluated. Docetaxel has an established role, and a range of biologically-targeted agents are in development.
The dominant pattern of metastatic spread is to the axial skeleton and most symptomatic care is directed to palliation of bone pain. The role of bisphosphonates remains controversial, but bone-directed isotopes such as Strontium-89 are effective.
Part of the Oxford Oncology Library, this pocketbook summarizes the up-to-date information on the use of systemic therapies in the management of prostate cancer (early stage, metastatic disease, and treatment of "biochemical" recurrence). With contributions from leading oncologists from both Europe and the USA, the book provides a practical guide to the range of endocrine and cytotoxic therapies currently available to clinicians, as well as to other palliative anticancer strategies, and will be valuable to all health professionals involved in the management of patients with prostate cancer.

Neoplastic Mimics in Genitourinary Pathology (Hardcover): Peter A. Humphrey, Robert Henry Young, Carlos Manivel Neoplastic Mimics in Genitourinary Pathology (Hardcover)

R3,164 Discovery Miles 31 640 Shipped within 7 - 11 working days

Neoplastic mimics or "pseudotumors" can simulate neoplasms on all levels of analysis- clinical, radiologic, and pathologic--and thus represent particular diagnostic pitfalls for the pathologist that can ultimately lead to therapeutic misdirection.

This book provides the pathologist with detailed morphologic descriptions and diagnostic guidance in recognizing these neoplastic mimics as they occur in the genitourinary system. In addition, descriptions and diagnostic guidance are provided for the range of genitourinary lesions tumors that may mimic benign masses but are in fact neoplastic. Throughout the book comparisons of neoplastic mimics with true neoplasms are provided, at clinical, gross, and histologic levels. In the presentation of every entity, the points that contribute to differential diagnosis are emphasized.

More than 500 color images and this analysis of diagnostic mimics guide the pathologist through recognizing and distinguishing the unusual variants, morphologic anomalies and misleading features that may easily lead to an inaccurate interpretation and missed diagnosis. Since many of entities described are uncommon "Neoplastic Mimics in Genitourinary" emphasizes imaging and clinical correlations throughout to support the pathologist as consultant to the entire diagnostic and clinical management team. Every pathologist who sees genitourinary cases will find this book an invaluable working tool to ensure accurate diagnosis.

"Neoplastic Mimics in Genitourinary Pathology" features: Over 500 high-quality images showing the full range of neoplastic mimics in the genitourinary tract Concise, specific text descriptions make the book easy to use as a visual reference Expert authors guide the reader to recognizing and distinguishing misleading specimens

Clinics in Developmental Medicine No. 170

Elimination disorders (nocturnal enuresis, urinary incontinence and encopresis) are among the most common disorders of childhood. Some disorders are primarily genetically determined, in others environmental factors predominate. Also, the rate of comorbid behavioural disturbances differs greatly from one syndrome to another. Because of this variety and heterogeneity, each disorder requires specific approaches in assessment and treatment. This book provides an evidence-based overview of functional elimination disorders. It draws on the standardisation and terminology suggested by the International Children's Continence Society. Short case vignettes, photos and line drawings, as well as questionnaires and charts are provided. To enable a quick orientation for clinical purposes, each chapter is followed by summaries, guidelines and diagrams. It will be of interest to all professionals working in the field.

Focal therapy is a promising option for selected patients who have localized low or intermediate-risk prostate cancer, providing a compelling alternative between active surveillance and radical therapies by targeting the index lesion and preserving as much tissue as possible. Numerous cohort studies have already investigated multiple focal techniques, such as cryotherapy, high-intensity focused ultrasound, brachytherapy, photodynamic therapy, laser therapy, irreversible electroporation and cyberknife methods, all of which have demonstrated positive oncological outcomes with 70 to 90 % negative follow-up biopsy. These various ablative techniques have produced only minor side-effects concerning urinary function, a low rate of erectile dysfunction, and have demonstrated a limited rectal toxicity. As a result, the primary end-point has now shifted and a new strategy needs to be established for patient follow-up and for defining treatment failure. Written by international experts in the field, this book is mainly focused on new techniques, all of which are amply illustrated. Technical Aspects of Focal Therapy in Localized Prostate Cancer will be of great practical value to all urologists and oncologists.

"Treat yourself and your man-root to a thorough and often uproarious read-through. Your health prospects will be pointing at the ceiling in no time."—Peter Moore, former editor of Men's Health

Men are notoriously reluctant to see a doctor. Only three in five men report going for an annual physical, and over 40 percent only ever visit the clinic when their symptoms become unbearable. Many know little or nothing about their bodies, with dire consequences for their well-being.

In Happy Down Below, men’s health specialist Dr. Oliver Gralla provides a clever and highly entertaining remedy to that situation. Packed with colorful anecdotes and quirky illustrations, this cheeky guidebook offers practical tips and clear, accessible explanations for helping men (and women) better understand the male body, learn to care for it, and become more comfortable speaking about it with their doctors when things go wrong. With plenty of relatable metaphors and a light, conversational tone, Dr. Gralla provides simple, research-based answers to questions such as: Do male enhancement pills actually work? Why does erectile dysfunction happen and how is it treated? What is a “normal” penis―and how big is it really? And much, much more.

This volume is an essential and comprehensive review of all aspects of minimally invasive urology. Specifically, the book evaluates minimally invasive approaches to all aspects of clinical urology. Unlike prior texts that focus on a specific technology or a specific disease, this unique reference provides a broad-based view of minimally invasive urology. As such, laparoscopic surgery, robotic surgery, endoscopic surgery, and single-site surgery are all reviewed within the context of renal cancer, renal reconstruction, bladder cancer, prostate cancer, female urology, transplant donor nephrectomy, stone disease, stricture disease, and benign prostatic hyperplasia. The text concludes with chapters on informed consent and cost, which are also quite relevant to the practicing urologist.

Authored by a wide array of leaders in the field known for both their clinical prowess and commitment to education, "Minimally Invasive Urology: An Essential Clinical Guide to Endourology, Laparoscopy, LESS and Robotics" provides a critical resource for clinicians, surgeons, operating room technicians, operating room managers and hospital administration.

The clinical management of urolithiasis is now in a new era of ureteroscopic lithotripsy. Ureteroscopic lithotripsy has become an effective and safe treatment for both renal and ureteral stones, and its indications have been expanding. The advantages of ureteroscopy over shock-wave lithotripsy are its ability to directly access stones throughout the entire urinary collecting system either unilaterally or bilaterally, and to actively remove stone fragments. For large renal stones, percutaneous nephrolithotomy is now a standard treatment, but its major complication rates are not negligible. Ureteroscopic lithotripsy is a type of endoscopic surgery that is performed through the natural orifice, which thus avoids the onset of any renal parenchymal damage. New surgical techniques which combine percutaneous and transurethral approaches have been developed. Ureteroscopes and their working devices have rapidly improved, and further improvements will lead to even better outcomes in the next decade. This book presents the latest knowledge and the skills used for ureteroscopic surgery for urolithiasis. It consists of four sections (Indications, Instrumentations, Techniques and Evaluations). This book provides essential information for urologists who want to learn the techniques of this type of endourological surgery.

This book addresses the fundamental importance of the proper assessment and treatment of sexual disorders in patients with mental disorders with regard to their treatment outcomes and adherence to therapies. In fact, patients with mental disorders often suffer from sexual dysfunctions and in many cases, pharmacological treatment causes sexual-dysfunction side-effects. However, anxiety disorders, personality disorders, eating disorders and psychotic disorders are often also characterized by sexual symptoms that have a profound impact on sexual function. The psychopathology of sexual behavior investigates deficits in the mind-body relationship that are expressed through sexual symptoms such as erectile dysfunction, premature ejaculation, vaginismus, orgasmic disorders, or lack of sexual desire. These symptoms can be considered both prodromal and as a consequence of psychological or psychiatric suffering. Written by a multidisciplinary team of experts, this book offers a valuable guide for psychiatrists, andrologists, gynecologists and psychologists.
