Provides an insight into recent laparoscopic achievement in urology
Laparoscopic surgery is of paramount importance for achieving minimal invasiveness and respect for the quality of life - two hallmarks of contemporary medicine. Laparoscopy is at the forefront of urology today, with dramatic advances in engineering and surgical technique. Because they promise to be less invasive, the innovations presented in this volume will become tomorrows standard. In utero and pediatric laparoscopic surgery are discussed, as are varying approaches to laparoscopic adrenalectomy. Other topics include radical surgery for renal cell carcinoma and transitional cell carcinoma, nephron-sparing laparoscopic surgery for renal cancer, and retroperitoneal lymphadenectomy for testicular cancer. With sections on pyeloplasty, nephropexy, urolithiasis, stress incontinence, kidney transplantation, and dialysis, this book is an especially valuable source in the fields of endourology, laparoscopic surgery, pediatric surgery, and endocrine surgery.
