Practical Urology – Essential Principles and Practice focuses on aspects of urology which are often forgotten in contemporary practice, but nevertheless are the subject of incremental advances and form the basis of much of the non-oncological practice.
This book reviews the upper tract, pelvo-ureteric junction obstruction, recent advances in renal calculus disease, pharmacology of the bladder and functional disorders of the lower urinary tract. It also addresses aspects of physiology of the lower tract and important issues of neurourology and urogynaecology. Alongside this, with Laparoscopy becoming increasingly important, the subject is extensively covered in the context of an essential update on laparoscopic anatomy.
Practical Urology – Essential Principles and Practice provides an important contribution to those who wish to have a global overview of what is new in functional urology.
