This text examines precisely all possible scenarios about robotic urologic surgery where a complication may arise, in order that the surgeon knows all the risk factors that predispose a complication, and if it is presented, to have all anatomical, surgical and updated scientific elements to resolve the situation successfully. The book's content is designed for easy and thorough reading. It is organized in sections that include an overview of robotic surgery, principles of anesthesia and complications, as well as recognition of failure in the instruments used in this kind of surgery. It then offers a detailed discussion of each robotic urologic surgical procedures, both the upper urinary tract, lower urinary tract, oncological procedures, reconstructive and those that are managed in conjunction with other specialties such as gynecology, pediatrics, and other highly specialized as the case of kidney transplantation. Chapters are written by experts in the field who indicate step by step review of each clinical case in particular to prevent the occurrence of associated complications, including providing information on legal aspects. The book is written for both novice surgeons and all those experts who interact daily in the wonderful world of robotic surgery. Containing the points of view and recommendations of the most experienced surgeons in each of the procedures, it is as if the professor were in the operating room with the surgeon to explain how to prevent, identify and treat complications. Complications in Robotic Urologic Surgery represents the complete collection of all the stages of complications in urologic robotic surgery and will be indispensable for all robotic surgeons.
Die Urologie im Rheinland lieferte wichtige Beitr ge zur Entwicklung des Faches. Daher lautet eine zentrale Frage wie sich diese Kulturregion und das Fachgebiet wechselseitig durchdringen und welche Bedeutung der Kategorie Raum in der medizinhistorischen Analyse zu kommen kann. Der Band spannt daher einen Bogen von institutionellen ber wissenschaftliche Entwicklungslinien, biographischen Skizzen bis hin zu kunst- und kulturhistorischen Aspekten der Urologie und Medizin im Rheinland.. Bedeutende rzte wie Bernhard Bardenheuer oder Gottfried Thelen werden ebenso untersucht wie ber hmte "rheinische" Patienten wie Heinrich Heine oder Robert Schumann. Aber auch niedergelassene Urologen wie Hans Koch werden vorgestellt oder kunstgeschichtliche Bez ge aufgezeigt. Eindrucksvoll wird am lokalen Beispiel die Verfolgung j discher Urologen in der Zeit des Nationalsozialismus aufgearbeitet. Das Buch ist ein anregender berblick ber die lokale und regionale Entwicklung der Urologie, gerade ohne Erfolgsgeschichten aufzeigen zu wollen, sondern ein Beispiel f r den Urologenalltag in verschiedenen Epochen.
Frozen sections are performed for the purpose of rapid diagnosis while a patient is undergoing surgery, usually under general anesthesia, as a basis for making immediate treatment decisions. Therefore, frozen section diagnosis is often a highly demanding situation for the pathologist who must render a diagnosis quickly and a crucial determination for the patient and surgeon. In addition to the need for rapid recall of differential diagnoses, there are many pitfalls and artifacts that add to the risk of frozen section diagnosis that are not present with permanent sections of fully processed tissues that can be examined in a more leisurely fashion. Most standard pathology textbooks, both general and subspecialty, largely ignore the topic of frozen section. Few textbooks have ever focused exclusively on frozen section diagnosis and those textbooks that have done so are now out-of-date and have limited numbers of black and white figures. None has emphasized the education of the surgeon in terms of frozen section benefits, limitations or proper utilization.
The Frozen Section Library series will provide convenient, user-friendly handbooks for each organ system to expedite use in the hurried frozen section situation. These books will be small and light-weight, copiously color illustrated with images of actual frozen sections, highlighting pitfalls, artifacts and differential diagnosis. These books will also include perspectives for the surgeon and for communication with the surgeon and suggest ancillary procedures (for example, when to take tissue for microbiology cultures). Each 5 X 8 book is estimated to be about 200 to 250 pages in toto with 100 to 150 color figures each.
As a handbook for practicing pathologists, these books will be indispensable aids to diagnosis and avoiding dangers in one of the most challenging situations that pathologists encounter. Problems, such as differentiation of benign processes from malignant neoplasms which may be more difficult on frozen section than permanent section and which have a serious impact on the surgeon s immediate treatment decisions, will be emphasized. Rapid consideration of differential diagnoses and how to avoid traps caused by frozen section artifacts will be readily accessible to the users of the handbooks. A series of concise, easy-to-use, well-illustrated handbooks alleviates the often frustrating and time-consuming, sometimes futile, process of searching through bulky textbooks that are unlikely to illustrate or discuss pathologic diagnoses from the perspective of frozen
sections in the first place. Tables and charts will provide guidance for differential diagnosis of various histologic patterns.
The advantages of a series of organ-specific handbooks, in addition to the ease-of-use and manageable size, is that (1) it allows more comprehensive coverage of more diagnoses, both common and rare, than a single volume that tries to highlight a limited number of diagnoses for each organ and (2) it allows more detailed insight by permitting experienced authorities to emphasize the peculiarities of frozen section for each organ system. Although some differences in practice of frozen section exist between different institutions, such as differing policies regarding whether or not to perform frozen section on specific types of specimens, these differences are generally not significant and can be discussed ( an organ-specific handbook by an expert in that organ system permits more opportunity for this type of discussion). Touch preparations, which are used for some organs such as central nervous system or thyroid more often than others, will be appropriately emphasized and illustrated according to the need for each specific organ.
This series will be highly valuable to practicing surgical pathologists, both community and academic, and to pathology residents and fellows. The perspectives provided will also be valuable to surgeons and especially to surgery residents and fellows who must answer questions about pathology and frozen section on their board examinations. These handbooks will be easily portable by the individual but it is envisioned that many departments will want to also keep a series readily available in the frozen section laboratory. "
This atlas features sequential pictures for most reconstructive urology procedures, also covering laparoscopic assisted procedures such as orthotopic neobladder and ileocystoplasty. Unlike many other titles covering this subject however, illustrations in the majority of chapters in this work are drawn purely from a single case, allowing the reader to chart such complex surgeries step-by-step.
Laparoscopic assisted procedures drastically reduce the operative time required, and those surgeons with moderate familiarity with urology and laparoscopic process should be able to complete these operations comfortably.
Though the use of advanced technology is described, the book has been constructed in such a way that urologists from both developed and developing countries would be able to pick up the technical tips featured to perform the laparoscopic procedures also using simplified devices.
This book also deals with some of the unusual situations or complications that the vastly experienced authors have personally faced in their careers to date, offering problem-solving tips and pitfalls to avoid, accompanied again by diagrams or photographs where appropriate.
Finally, a CD-ROM featuring videos of many of the procedures covered in the body of the text is packaged with the book, to offer a comprehensive read for all practicing urologists and surgical trainees across the globe.
The editors have drawn together contributions from twelve practising GU nurses to provide a detailed description of GU conditions and the role of the GU nurse. Among the topics covered are: cytology and colposcopy, contact tracing, syphilis, gonorrhoea, chlamydia, pelvic inflammatory disease, bacterial vaginosis, genital warts and HIV/AIDS. By sharing information and the first--hand experiences of GU nurses from clinics around England and Wales it is hoped that this book will help to improve the quality of care given to patients attending GU departments.

Millions of women experience difficulties controlling their bladders but suffer in silence, reluctant to speak to their doctors -- or even to their best friends -- about the problem. Here, at last, women will find the most up-to-date medical explanations and state-of-the-art solutions, including:
This book reveals the ever-present challenges of patient care at the forefront of medical knowledge. Syphilis and gonorrhoea played upon the public imagination in Victorian and Edwardian England, inspiring fascination and fear. Seemingly inextricable from the other great 'social evil', prostitution, these diseases represented contamination, both physical and moral. They infiltrated respectable homes and brought terrible suffering and stigma to those afflicted. Medicine, Knowledge and Venereal Diseases takes us back to an age before penicillin and the NHS, when developments in pathology, symptomology and aetiology were transforming clinical practice. This is the first book to examine systematically how doctors, nurses and midwives grappled with new ideas and laboratory-based technologies in their fight against venereal diseases in voluntary hospitals, general practice and Poor Law institutions. It opens up new perspectives on what made competent and safe medical professionals; how these standards changed over time; and how changing attitudes and expectations affected the medical authority and autonomy of different professional groups.
Although urology is a surgical specialty, it has become apparent that changes in health care delivery and financing have led to an increasing volume of care being provided by urologists in their offices. A major part of the revenue of a urology practice depends on office production and efficient management. To have a successful practice, the produc- tive, committed urologist must have a thorough understanding of the procedures and problems that need to be dealt with in the office. Moreover. the urologist must play an active role in the administration and business aspects of running the office. Surprisingly, very little has been written about the office practice of urology. Office Urology: The Clinician's Guide presents a fresh, practical, and concise text- book covering the vital issues that the urologist must face on a daily basis in the office. The initial chapters of the textbook cover the critical aspects of managing the urologic office, such as principles of management, marketing the practice, proper billing and coding, advanced information systems, and important legal issues. The book is not intended to review in detail the academic aspects of the various pathologies pertaining to urology, which have been well covered in several other textbooks. Instead, the clinical chapters deal with practical issues, such as selecting appropriate treatment and counsel- ing patients on the optimal therapy for the problems that the urologist frequently man- ages. The individual authors have demonstrated expertise in their fields.
Advanced Therapy of Prostate Disease, from the inital to post-surgical psychological concerns, this book is a complete guide to every step of prostate disease treatment. First, it describes the physical exam in detail, as well as laboratory and imaging techniques that can confirm a diagnosis. Then, the pros and cons of treatment methods for every type and variation of prostate cancer and benign conditions are discussed. Post-surgical treatment (including behavioral issues) is also outlined.
The 1973 WHO classification of bladder tumours anticipated a probable need for eventual revision of the criteria for diagnosing papillary and flat bladder neoplasia. A workshop sponsored by the WHO consisting of pathologists, urologists, cytologists, oncologists and basic scientists interested in bladder tumours addressed this subject, and after a follow- -up meeting sponsored by the International Society of Urological Pathology, the classification and terminology used in this text were agreed upon. A major change is in the introduction of a new category: papillary urothelial neoplasm of low malignant potential. Many of the tumours previously designated as papillary transitional cell carcinoma, grade I now fall into that category. Another major change is in the designation of flat lesions, and this includes a definition of carcinoma in situ. Furthermore, a number of variant forms of urothelials carcinomas are included as well as new entities not recognized when the 1st edition was issued.
Offering the unique benefit of a combined urologic and radiologic approach, this book defines the appropriate clinical investigation to be carried out in evaluating a wide range of urologic disorders.
From demonstrations of ultrasound, CT scanning, magnetic resonance imaging, color flow Doppler, position emission tomography, and radioimmunodetection, to the dramatic implications of new laboratory technology such as prostrate-specific antigen and evolving molecular techniques, to the replacement of older, invasive techniques with more accurate and less invasive ones, the book provides a wealth of clinical diagnostic guidelines.
An emphasis on the promotion of continence and proactive interventions, MDS requirements, AHCPR guideline, and on how to set up continence p rograms in a variety of health care settings makes this book invaluabl e to clinicians in long-term care, home health, rehabilitation, acute care, personal care services, hospice, primary care, and ambulatory ca re. The inclusion of the latest research findings and recommendations for future research appeals to graduate students, faculty, and clinica l researchers in nursing as well as in-service coordinators and patien t educators.
