Description

With the wealth of information and treatment options available, decisions about the management of uro-oncological diseases are not always straightforward. An Atlas of Uro-oncology gives you a snapshot of the diagnosis and treatment of these diseases that allows you to quickly grasp the big picture. The book focuses on the most commonly encountered tumors of the prostate, kidney, bladder, testes, and penis. The author begins with a thorough review of the molecular basis of urological cancer, including cell adhesion molecules, the caspase apoptosis pathway, angiogenesis, and signal transduction. He goes on to cover treatment options, surgical techniques, and the management of advanced disease. Color photographs and "decision trees" for all the common uro-oncological diseases facilitate your decision-making process. Almost everyday uro-oncologists must choose between a variety of investigation and treatment strategies. But who has the time to plough through a two- or three-volume textbook of uro-oncology? Now you don't have to. An Atlas of Uro-oncology distills the essence of a vast subject and provides the tools you need to make the best decision possible.
