Practical Urologic Cytopathology


By (author): Ricardo H. Bardales

Practical Urologic Cytopathology provides the essentials for the cytologic diagnosis of disorders of the urinary tract illustrated with approximately 300 color photomicrographs. The text combines the recent with the classic and standard concepts, particularly in the classification of urothelial tumors. Urothelial tumors are covered contrasting the 1973 and 1999 WHO classification and the 1998 WHO/ISUP (World Health Organization/International Society of Urological Pathologists).
The author provides a summary of “key concepts” of each described entity that enhances the practical nature of this book. The book also summarizes the recent developments in the molecular biology and markers for the diagnosis of urothelial tumors and includes chapters on the fine needle aspiration cytopathology of urinary tract masses and on the diagnostic value of urine cytology interpretation. This book is intended for practicing pathologists, pathologists in training, and cytotechnology students as well as researchers and those with special interest in the cytopathology of the urinary tract.

Antioxidants in Andrology (Trends in Andrology and Sexual Medicine)


This book focuses on the use of various molecules with antioxidant properties in the treatment of major male genital tract disorders, especially male infertility, erectile dysfunction, and accessory gland infection. The coverage also includes discussion of pathophysiology, the molecular basis of male infertility, and the rationale for use of antioxidants, with particular attention to coenzyme Q10 and carnitine. Oxidative stress occurs when the production of reactive oxygen species, including free radicals, exceeds the body’s natural antioxidant defences, leading to cellular damage. Oxidative stress is present in about half of all infertile men, and reactive oxygen species can produce infertility both by damaging the sperm membrane, with consequences for sperm motility, and by altering the sperm DNA. There is consequently a clear rationale for the use of antioxidant treatments within andrology, and various in vitro and in vivo studies have indicated that many antioxidants indeed have beneficial impacts. In providing a detailed and up-to-date overview of the subject, this book will be of interest to both practitioners and researchers in andrology, endocrinology, and urology.

Prosthetic Surgery in Urology


Features: Prosthetic Surgery in Urology

Urologists interested in prosthesis surgery currently offer a range of procedures eg slings for incontinence in both men and women, and is also within the remit of those undertaking AUS (artificial urinary sphincter) implantation, and likewise andrological surgeons undertaking penile prosthesis also offer AUS. There are a number of procedures which are common to all urologists with a general urology practice eg ureteric stents and testicular implants. However, the purpose of this book is to cover this area of urological surgery and provide a reference book for those interested in expanding their practice.

Oncologic Imaging: Urology


This book is designed as a reference and working guide for practitioners who deal with patients with neoplastic diseases of the urinary tract and male genitalia, including tumors of the kidney, ureter and urinary bladder, prostate, testis, adrenal gland, and retroperitoneum. Each chapter describes and illustrates key imaging findings relevant to the characterization, differential diagnosis, and staging of lesions. Pattern recognition is facilitated through the use of schematic drawings, and imaging findings on post-treatment follow-up also form an important component of the book. Brief core descriptions of related multidisciplinary fields, such as nuclear medicine, pathology, urologic surgery, and radiation oncology are included whenever relevant.

Urodynamics: A Quick Pocket Guide


By (author): Giancarlo Vignoli

This pocket guide is an easy-to-use, practically oriented resource that provides reliable information and advice on the technical aspects of urodynamic techniques, the interpretation of tracings, quality control, and the most common pitfalls. Individual sections focus on uroflowmetry, multichannel urodynamics, interpretation of pressure/flow tracings, urethral function studies, pelvic floor electromyography, videourodynamics, and urodynamics of the upper urinary tract. Despite recent criticisms, there is general agreement that urodynamic investigation represents a necessary step before any surgical approach to incontinence and obstruction. Nevertheless, recently published guidelines fail to provide specific directions on performance and interpretation of urodynamics, and knowledge of the basic rules and formal urodynamics training are too often lacking. Readers will find that this guide enables them to retrieve key information quickly and to feel more confident in their practice of urodynamics.

Fundamentals in Oncologic Ultrasound: Sonographic Imaging and Intervention in the Cancer Patient


Features: Used Book in Good Condition
By (author): Orlando Catalano, Antonio Nunziata, Alfredo Siani

It is a remarkable observation that human creativity can be fostered by spectacular scenery, itself usually the result of tectonic activity which raises mountains of beauty but carries the sting of earthquakes and eruptions. Think of Silicon Valley in Ca- fornia or of the Tokyo-Kyoto corridor in Eastern Japan. Another is the glorious Amalfi coast around Naples, where the authors of this new textbook work in the shadow of Mount Vesuvius. Is it the beauty that inspires or the tension of knowing that one’s life may be shattered at any moment if a volcanic or tectonic disaster strikes? Whatever the explanation, these authors’ passion for their subject shines through and their work carries not only their enthusiasm but also a rare beauty in its construction/format, for it is a joy to hold and behold with its beautiful all-colour printing and abundant illustrations of excellent quality, mainly, of course, ultrasound images but also corresponding CT scans and numerous elegant diagrams. But, is there a need for a textbook on ultrasound in oncology? Doesn’t everyone accept that CT or PET/CT (and sometimes MR) have nailed the problem of oncologic imaging? Well, while CT is undoubtedly the core imaging technique for the det- tion, staging, treatment planning and follow-up of tumours, there remain many app- cations for modern ultrasound, as readers of this textbook will be persuaded.
