  • About this book

Urologic laparoscopy is in the midst of a clinical resurgence that has prompted many urologists to seek new training in the technique. In Essential Urologic Laparoscopy: The Complete Clinical Guide, a panel of urologists and physicians distinguished by their clinical expertise in procedural laparoscopy detail how to perform the major urologic laparoscopic procedures. The authors offer clear, concise chapters focusing on getting started, laparoscopic instrumentation, and step-by-step procedural adult laparoscopy. Each chapter is organized so that the reader can easily identify the key points and pitfalls, with the instrumentation chapter completely cross-referenced so that operating room and hospital personnel can use the book as a comprehensive reference guide for most laparoscopic procedures. The procedures detailed range from the simple (renal cyst decortication, pelvic lymph node dissection, and simple nephrectomy) to the advanced (adrenalectomy, partial nephrectomy, radical nephroureterectomy, live donor nephrectomy, and pyeloplasty). The transperitoneal, retroperitoneal, and hand-assisted approaches to laparoscopic radical nephrectomy-the gold standard for most renal pathology-are fully described by those pioneers who have championed them. In addition, the latest cutting-edge procedures such as laparoscopic radical prostatectomy and laparoscopic cystectomy with urinary diversion are detailed.
Easy-to-use and highly practical, Essential Urologic Laparoscopy: The Complete Clinical Guide provides a comprehensive guide to performing effective and cutting-edge urologic laparoscopy-the key to creating, maintaining, and expanding a successful practice in minimally invasive urologic surgery today.
