Main description:

Endourology has developed significantly in recent years as a result of rapid change in surgical techniques and instruments. This eighth volume in the series Recent Advances in Endourology brings together the latest clinical findings regarding various endourological treatment modalities and innovative materials. In the past 30 years, transurethral resection of prostate, bladder, and ureteral tumors has been dramatically refined. Transurethral microwave thermotherapy has emerged as a nonsurgical option for the treatment of benign prostatic obstruction. Percutaneous surgery has changed significantly with the miniaturization of the endoscope, while the needle ablation technique, which decreases pain and shortens hospital stays, has become the treatment of choice for small renal cell tumors. In this book, world-recognized experts outline their techniques clearly and concisely to provide an updated review of state-of-the-art endourological techniques.


International management of urological diseases is focused in this latest issue

From the reviews:

"The authors have assembled leaders in the field of endourology to contribute the various chapters. This purpose is to provide an update on new technology and techniques available for the minimally invasive, endourologic treatment of urologic disease. … By assembling experts in the field, the editors have done an excellent job of achieving this goal. The book is written primarily for practicing urologists looking to update their knowledge of new technology or refine their skills as endourologic surgeons." (Edward E Cherullo,, March, 2007)
