About this book

Radical Prostatectomy: Surgical Perspectives provides surgeons with a comprehensive overview of the anatomical approach to radical prostatectomy, whether done through an open (retropubic) or robotic-assisted laparoscopic approach. All chapters are structured to provide a step-by-step approach to the most technically demanding and most common oncologic procedure in urology surgery. The book includes highly practical presentations of typical surgical patients seen in the clinical practice of urology and relies heavily on illustrations and intraoperative photographs to clearly complement the text. In addition, the book  includes a detailed description of the management of uncommon but potentially serious intraoperative complications, including major vascular injury, ureteral transaction, and rectotomy.

Written by authors from a variety of integrated disciplines, including anesthesia, cardiology, and nursing Radical Prostatectomy: Surgical Perspectives is a unique and valuable resource in the field of urology both for those currently in training and for those already in surgical practices.

Reviews

From the reviews:

“Editors J.A. Eastham and E.M. Schaeffer and 23 experts aimed to provide the urologists with a complete overview of the various aspects of radical prostatectomy. … This textbook offers practical and useful information for urologists involved in the management of prostate cancer.” (European Urology Today, April-June, 2014) 

“This is a comprehensive overview of the techniques used to perform radical prostatectomy with an emphasis on anatomical details. … It is intended for urologic surgeons in training and in practice. It provides comprehensive background for trainees (students/residents/fellows) and will serve as reference for practicing urologists. … Each chapter provides well-referenced information along with excellent figures/illustrations that add to the descriptions.” (Chandan Kundavaram, Doody’s Book Reviews, February, 2014)
