Advanced Imaging of the Abdomen is invaluable to the practising radiologist, and the more senior radiology resident and fellow, who is looking for a background reference source when discussing a suggested imaging approach with the referring physician. The book includes extensive lists, tables, line drawings and illustrations - ultrasonography, computed tomography, magnetic resonance images, scintigraphy. It bridges the interface between the referring clinician and radiologist when faced with a patient suspected of having a complex or more unusual abdominal condition.
Pediatric Urology has rapidly developed as a separate subspecialty in the last decade. During this time, significant advances in technology and instrumentation has meant that increasingly more procedures can be performed by the minimally invasive route. However, access to and availability of adequate training facilities and resources continues to hinder surgeons in achieving experience and expertise in the minimally invasive techniques in paediatric urology. Pediatric Endourology Techniques 2nd edition is a fully illustrated text with an accompanying web application which addresses these issues. The aim of this 2nd edition is to enable surgeons to carry out commonly performed minimally invasive pediatric urological procedures. This book has been organised systematically to enable quick reference to the topic of interest. It encompasses not only the majority of commonly performed pediatric endourological procedures in a standardised format but also newer techniques and procedures that have developed since publication of the first edition. A list of specific relevant reading material is given at the end of each chapter. Pediatric Endourology Techniques 2nd Edition is a valuable tool for pediatric urologists as well as pediatric surgeons, general surgeons, adult urologists and those with an interest in minimally invasive surgery.
"Radical Prostatectomy: Surgical Perspectives" provides surgeons with a comprehensive overview of the anatomical approach to radical prostatectomy, whether done through an open (retropubic) or robotic-assisted laparoscopic approach. All chapters are structured to provide a step-by-step approach to the most technically demanding and most common oncologic procedure in urology surgery. The book includes highly practical presentations of typical surgical patients seen in the clinical practice of urology and relies heavily on illustrations and intraoperative photographs to clearly complement the text. In addition, the book includes a detailed description of the management of uncommon but potentially serious intraoperative complications, including major vascular injury, ureteral transaction, and rectotomy.
Written by authors from a variety of integrated disciplines, including anesthesia, cardiology, and nursing "Radical Prostatectomy: Surgical Perspectives" is a unique and valuable resource in the field of urology both for those currently in training and for those already in surgical practices."
This issue of Surgical Pathology Clinics focuses on diseases of the genitourinary tract: Prostate, Kidney, Bladder, Testes, and Adrenals. As with all information in this series, presentations relate to the daily practice of surgical pathologists. A practical and innovative feature in this issue is the inclusion of several articles from the "clinician's perspective" in which an oncologist discusses the diagnosis of the disease and relates this to the information they require from the pathologist. Topics include: Morphologic updates in prostate pathology; Molecular updates in prostate pathology; Diagnosis of prostate carcinoma: A clinician's perspective; Commonly encountered renal neoplasms; Emerging dntities in renal neoplasia; Diagnosis of renal cell carcinoma: A clinician's perspective; Morphologic and molecular characteristics of bladder cancer; Diagnosis of bladder carcinoma: A clinician's perspective; Overview of testicular neoplasia; Diagnosis of testicular cancer: A clinician's perspective; Overview of adrenal neoplasia; Diagnosis of adrenal carcinoma: A clinician's perspective; Benign lesions of the GU tract . Michelle Hirsch leads this issue with a group of expert genitourinary pathologists and oncologists.
This book fills a major gap in the literature by providing comprehensive guidelines for the care of male patients through the lifecycle and across healthcare settings. Devoted solely to improving men's health, this book serves as an accessible, practical reference for clinicians treating these patients. It focuses on the psychosocial challenges that men encounter in obtaining healthcare as well as acute and chronic medical and psychological diseases. The book also offers current evidence-based guidelines for wellness and health maintenance. Topics include the problem of help seeking, preventative services, sexual dysfunction, cardiovascular health, prostate cancer screening, and testosterone deficiency. Men's Health in Primary Care is a valuable resource for primary care clinicians and students in family medicine, internal medicine, and adolescent medicine.
"Renal Cell Carcinoma: Clinical Management" provides a comprehensive, state-of-the art review of this field, and will serve as a valuable resource for clinicians, surgeons and researchers with an interest in kidney cancer. The volume reviews new data about risk factors for the disease, profiles the new staging system for renal cell carcinoma (RCC), highlights our current understanding of familial syndromes of RCC and their molecular genetics, and provides new perspectives about imaging of renal tumors. For localized disease, a greater appreciation of nephron-sparing approaches and the importance of preservation of renal function is discussed in detail. Advances in surgical techniques are highlighted. For metastatic disease, the molecular biology of kidney cancer is reviewed in a concise and understandable manner, including the data that has fostered novel targeted approaches that have revolutionized management. The several landmark phase III targeted therapy trials published in the last few years are placed in context with respect to current management. Integration of surgery and systemic therapy through cytoreductive and consolidative approaches has yielded provocative data that promises to further advance the field, and major advances in this domain are also be discussed.
This textbook walks clinicians through the psychosocial issues and challenges faced by children and adolescents with cancer and their families. Through a developmental lens, the text provides guidance and resources that will enable clinicians to understand the physical and emotional impact of the disease from diagnosis onwards, to work with families in distress, and to diagnose and treat a range of behavioral, psychological, and psychiatric issues. The book also addresses the burgeoning fields of social media, complementary therapies, palliative care, and survivorship. Among the variety of useful resources supplied are assessment tools, websites, and additional reading materials. The psychosocial issues that arise for children and their families during the course of treatment are an important yet often overlooked aspect of pediatric oncology care. The reader will find that Pediatric Psychosocial Oncology: Textbook for Multidisciplinary Care covers these issues at the forefront of clinical care in a direct and approachable way, integrating research literature with practical clinical guidance.

This comprehensive book reviews our current state of knowledge about the pathogenesis of idiopathic nephrotic syndrome (INS), which comprises a heterogeneous group of diseases with distinct histological characteristics, such as minimal-change nephrotic syndrome (MCNS), focal segmental glomerulosclerosis (FSGS), and idiopathic membranous nephropathy (IMN). As the word "idiopathic" indicates, the pathogenesis of INS remains unclear. Historically, T-cell dysfunction has been thought to play an important part in the pathogenesis of MCNS, while circulating vascular permeabilities have been believed to induce proteinuria in FSGS. The book further describes recent advances in molecular biology, which have allowed us to speculate on the interactions between visceral glomerular epithelial cells (podocytes) and the relative significance of several molecules in the pathogenesis of INS, such as reactive oxygen species, nuclear factor-kappa B, CD80, angiopoietin-like 4, cardiotrophin-like cytokine-1, and M-type phospholipase A2 receptor. The normally rapid pace of scientific progress occasionally devolves into a state of chaos, and the pathogenetic research on INS is one such case. This volume will help researchers and scientists to collaborate, share resources, and expedite the design of protocols to evaluate the putative factors.
Prostate brachytherapy has been the subject of heated debate among surgeons and the proponents of the various brachytherapy methods. This very first interdisciplinary book on the subject provides a comprehensive overview of innovations in low dose rate (LDR), high dose rate (HDR), and pulsed dose rate (PDR) interstitial brachytherapy for the management of local or locally advanced prostate cancer. In addition to detailed chapters on patient selection and the use of imaging in diagnostics, treatment guidance, and implantation control, background chapters are included on related medical physics issues such as treatment planning and quality assurance. The results obtained with the different treatment options and the difficult task of salvage treatment are fully discussed. All chapters have been written by internationally recognized experts who for more than a decade have formed the teaching staff responsible for the successful GEC-ESTRO/EAU Prostate Brachytherapy Teaching Course.
