Dr. Hans-Peter Schmid has addressed in this monograph the basic dilemmas surrounding prostate cancer. These dilemmas include the 40 % histologic incidence of invasive cancer in men in comparison to a 3 % death rate, the extraordinary slow doubling time of four to five years for untreated early clinical stages (T1 and T2 cancers), the limited life span of even healthy men over 70 years of age, and the national and international debates of how to treat this cancer. It is important, however, to recognize that despite these uncertainties, prostate cancer is probably the most predictive of all human solid tumors. Dr. Schmid has addressed the basis for much of this predictability in this monograph. The level of serum PSA and its rate of increase in the untreated patient with a prostate size of less than 50 grams is undoub tedly the most useful of all measurements in predicting volume and grade of the cancer, but it is closely followed by assessment of the extent and percent of grade 4 and 5 cancer in six systematic, spatially separated biopsies. Estimating the amount of suspected cancer on digital rectal examination by assigning a clinical stage is useful, but far less quantitative than PSA and systematic biopsies. The Basel series in this monograph adds strong support to these basic concepts. April 1994 ThomasA. Stamey, M. D.

Using real-world cases, this clinical guide details the psychosocial challenges faced by patients navigating the world of medically assisted reproduction (MAR). It describes in depth the latest perspectives on counseling approaches to the evolving complexities of family creation, whether fertility issues are a presenting problem or occur during the course of therapy or the aftermath of a struggle with infertility. Applying an evidence-based, cross-border approach, international experts not only discuss advanced perspectives on topics such as third party reproduction, pregnancy loss and adoption, but also newer issues of fertility preservation, 'older' patient parenthood, LGBT and singles' family creation. A comprehensive resource, it explores pioneering insights into fertility counseling such as spirituality, developing disclosure language, a counselor's personal fertility issues, and more. This is an essential aid for medical and mental health professionals to develop and refine the skills needed to treat the increasingly diverse and complex needs of MAR patients.

Meiosis is a key event in the life of all sexually reproductive organisms. As a consequence of recombination and segregation of maternal and paternal sets of chromosomes, it represents the largest natural source of genetic variability. The field of meiosis research is expanding rapidly, with significant progress resulting from the use of suitable model systems as well as from the identification and characterization of proteins, many of them meiosis-specific, which play a key role during meiotic events. This volume provides the reader with a series of authoritative review articles summarizing some of the most recent advances in the field of meiosis research. Most of the more commonly used model systems are investigated taking the comparative aspects into account. Written by leading experts in the field, the book is a valuable reference for researchers and graduate students in genetics, cell and developmental biology, reproductive biology and andrology.
Aimed at practicing clinicians and radiologists, this volume provides up-to-date, detailed information on potentially severe urinary tract infections (UTIs), which frequently require intensive in-patient antibiotic therapy, percutaneous or surgical treatment. UTIs are the most prevalent infectious illness, and account for hundreds of thousands of emergency and hospital admissions yearly. Furthermore, UTIs are the most common (almost 40%) type of hospital-acquired infections, with bladder catheterisation being the key risk factor. According to the European Association of Urology guidelines, complicated urinary tract infections (C-UTIs) are those associated with structural or functional genitourinary abnormalities or with conditions that impair the host's defence mechanisms, leading to an increased risk of acquiring infection or therapy failure. Besides offering current perspectives from urologists, nephrologists, and specialists in infectious diseases, the book presents the techniques and highlights the role of ultrasound and contrast-enhanced ultrasound, nuclear medicine, multidetector computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) in providing comprehensive investigations of upper and lower tract UTIs, and of systemic infections from unknown sources. Cross-sectional imaging is currently recommended to confirm UTI, to assess severity and look for underlying treatable structural or functional abnormalities, in order to provide a consistent basis for a correct therapeutic choice. Furthermore, dedicated chapters illustrate the current status of UTI imaging in children and the expanding role and possibilities of interventional radiology in the treatment of severe urinary tract infections.
Testosterone is a steroid hormone from the androgen group. Testosterone is primarily secreted in the testes of males and the ovaries of females although small amounts are secreted by the adrenal glands. It is the principal male sex hormone and an anabolic steroid. In both males and females, it plays key roles in health and well-being. Examples include enhanced libido, energy, immune function, and protection against osteoporosis. On average, the adult male body produces about twenty times the amount of testosterone that an adult female's body does. This book presents new and important research in this field from around the world.
Endourology is a dynamic subspecialty involving closed,controlled manipulation within the genitourinary tract.In the past decade the creative efforts of many urologists, radiologists, and engineers have vastly expanded endoscopic technique, to the great benefit of patients with stones, obstruction, cancer, diverticula,cysts, adrenal disease, varices, and diseases of the bladder. This definitive text addresses every aspect of endourologic procedure including methods of access, operative techniques, complications, and postoperative care. The reader is taken, step-by-step, through cutaneous surgery, ureteroscopy, extracorporeal shock wave lithotripsy, laparoscopy, and lower urinary tract procedures. The principles and function of state-of-the-art endourologic instruments are outlined for each procedure. The authorship reads like a Who's Who in endodurology . The breadth and depth of their experience is evident throughout the text. Authors: Arthur D. Smith Gopal H. Badlani Demetrius Bagley Ralph V. Clayman Steven G. Docimo Gerald H. Jordan Louis R.
