With increasing emphasis on the early diagnosis and management of urologic tumours, it is imperative that the practising urologist comprehend the relevance of the morphology for the clinical diagnostic and therapy. Moreover, the clinician should be fully informed of the importance of modern morphological methods for the diagnosis and management of urological tumours. Not only is this highly illustrated text a necessary adjunct in the attending urologist's armamentarium, it will also satisfy the needs of residents in pathology or even of pathologists, who are not daily faced with urological tumours. The structure of the chapters follows a uniform schema: short introduction with the definition of the tumour/ tumours, clinical history epidemiology, aetiology, gross morphology, microscopy, tumour genetics, importance of ancillary methods for the diagnosis, differential diagnosis, principles of grading and staging, morphological prognostic factors, and clinical course. The tables showcase the latest WHO histological classification of the tumours of the single organs, the integral (or complete) form of the latest TNM staging version, and the principles of the international accepted grading systems (kidney, bladder, prostate, penis ). A short chapter is devoted to handling procedures for surgical specimens and biopsies by clinicians.
Radical prostatectomy involves the surgical removal of the entire prostate gland and the seminal vesicles. Recently the open operation has been challenged by laparoscopic and robotic techniques. However, making the transition to this new technology is not an easy option. Avoiding surgical complications such as incontinence and ensuring continued erectile function following the procedure requires good surgical technique by whatever means. The editors and their distinguished team of contributors from around the world offer the reader their guidance based on personal experience and best surgical practice. Radical Prostatectomy is required reading for all those performing radical prostatectomy by open, laparoscopic or robotic techniques.

Bladder cancer is the fifth most common cancer of American men and the eighth most common cancer of American women, with sixty thousand new cases of the disease diagnosed each year in the US alone. Disease prevalence is high in western nations due to the predominance of the chronic relapsing form of cancer that occurs in these countries (USA prevalence estimated to be 600,000; NCI-SEER database), and this single fact makes bladder cancer one of the most expensive cancers to treat. expertise of an international community of experts in the area. All aspects of disease biology, diagnosis and treatment are addressed. Appropriate for scholars and students of medicine at all levels, it promises to become a key text in the field.

Over the last decades, acrosomal exocytosis (also called the "acrosome reaction") has been recognized as playing an essential role in fertilization. Secretion of this granule is an absolute requirement for physiological fertilization. In recent years, the study of mammalian acrosomal exocytosis has yielded some major advances that challenge the long-held, general paradigms in the field. Principally, the idea that sperm must be acrosome-intact to bind to the zona pellucida of unfertilized eggs, based largely on in vitro fertilization studies of mouse oocytes denuded of the cumulus oophorus, has been overturned by experiments using state-of-the-art imaging of cumulus-intact oocytes and fertilization experiments where eggs were reinseminated by acrosome-reacted sperm recovered from the perivitelline space of zygotes. From a molecular point of view, acrosome exocytosis is a synchronized and tightly regulated process mediated by molecular mechanisms that are homologous to those reported in neuroendocrinal cell secretions. The authors provide a broader perspective, focusing on a limited number of important topics that are essential for understanding the molecular mechanisms governing this step in the fertilization process. They also discuss molecular aspects such as the signaling pathways leading to exocytosis, including the participation of ion channels, lipids, the fusion machinery proteins and the actin cytoskeleton as well as cellular aspects such as the site of acrosomal exocytosis and the use of gene-manipulated animals to study this process.

Premature ejaculation (PE) is a common male sexual complaint, with a self-reported prevalence of 20 30% in observational studies. Over the past 10 20 years, our understanding of PE has evolved from the initial premise that it is a psychological disorder to the current recognition of an underlying biological and probably genetic predisposition in many cases. This new understanding has been accompanied by novel approaches to the assessment and treatment of patients with PE.
"Premature Ejaculation" is the first truly contemporary reference volume on the subject. It covers a broad range of aspects relevant to PE, including past and current definitions of the condition, the etiology of PE, its epidemiology, the impact of PE on both the patient and his partner, and the treatment of PE using pharmacotherapy and/or psychotherapy/cognitive behavioral therapy. The book is well illustrated and referenced, and the primary focus throughout is on evidence-based medicine.
This timely and authoritative volume will be of great value to sexual health physicians, andrologists, endocrinologists, urologists, psychiatrists, sexologists, psychologists, and other interested healthcare professionals."
