Endoscopic Diagnosis And Treatment In Prostate Pathology from the Author: Petrisor Aurelian Geavlete. Handbook of Endourology contains five focused, review-oriented volumes that are ideal for students and clinicians looking for a comprehensive review rather than a whole course. Each volume is easily accessible through eBook format. Topics covered review both the endourological diagnosis and treatment of prostate, urethral, urinary bladder, upper urinary tract, and renal pathology. All chapters describe the most recent techniques, review the latest results, and analyze the most modern technologies. In the past ten years, the field of endourology has expanded beyond the urinary tract to include all urologic minimally invasive surgical procedures. Recent advancements in robotic and laparoscopic bladder surgery make this one of the fastest moving fields in medicine. As current textbooks are too time-consuming for busy urologists or trainees who also need to learn other areas of urology, this collection provides quick references and over 4000 images that are appropriate for fellows as well as those teaching in the field. Offers review content for urologists in training and “refresher” content for experts in endourology Explores new surgical techniques and technology through review-level content and extensive images of pathologies Includes over 500 images per volume; images taken from more than 4000 endourologic procedures performed annually at the editor’s hospital

Genitourinary Pathology An Issue Of Surgical Pathology Clinics from the Author: Michelle S. Hirsch. This issue of Surgical Pathology Clinics focuses on diseases of the genitourinary tract: Prostate, Kidney, Bladder, Testes, and Adrenals. As with all information in this series, presentations relate to the daily practice of surgical pathologists. A practical and innovative feature in this issue is the inclusion of several articles from the “clinician’s perspective in which an oncologist discusses the diagnosis of the disease and relates this to the information they require from the pathologist. Topics include: Morphologic updates in prostate pathology; Molecular updates in prostate pathology; Diagnosis of prostate carcinoma: A clinician’s perspective; Commonly encountered renal neoplasms; Emerging dntities in renal neoplasia; Diagnosis of renal cell carcinoma: A clinician’s perspective; Morphologic and molecular characteristics of bladder cancer; Diagnosis of bladder carcinoma: A clinician’s perspective; Overview of testicular neoplasia; Diagnosis of testicular cancer: A clinician’s perspective; Overview of adrenal neoplasia; Diagnosis of adrenal carcinoma: A clinician’s perspective; Benign lesions of the GU tract . Michelle Hirsch leads this issue with a group of expert genitourinary pathologists and oncologists.

Pathology And Epidemiology Of Cancer from the Author: Massimo Loda. This book integrates the disciplines of cancer pathology and epidemiology to provide a synergistic and complementary approach to understanding the molecular mechanisms of cancer. This book provides relevant information on the diagnostic, prognostic and predictive molecular pathology of cancer. Epidemiological studies, including descriptive epidemiology, risk factors and molecular mechanisms of disease inform on the etiology and progression of cancer. The text concentrates on major cancers that are currently prevalent and those for which substantial molecular, pathological and epidemiological data is available. Each section is designed to provide an overview of that cancer type in terms of basic biology, review the current epidemiological data surrounding that cancer type and provide information on common practices and challenges related to the molecular pathology of that cancer type. Several relevant techniques in molecular pathology, which facilitate diagnosis and treatment are also explored. Pathology and Epidemiology of Cancer provides a succinct and comprehensive overview of multiple cancer types to guide clinicians during patient care and to guide scientists for innovations in research. It represents an integral resource for pathologists, epidemiologists, medical students as well as translational, basic and clinical science researchers who are all working to progress the field of cancer in terms of diagnosis, treatment and prevention. div

Clinical Pathology Of Urological Tumours from the Author: Gregor Mikuz. With increasing emphasis on the early diagnosis and management of urologic tumours, it is imperative that the practising urologist comprehend the relevance of the morphology for the clinical diagnostic and therapy. Moreover, the clinician should be fully informed of the importance of modern morphological methods (PCR, FISH, CGH etc) for the diagnosis and management of urological tumours. Outstandingly illustrated, with over 300 colour pathological slides and clinical photos, Clinical Pathology of Urological Tumours is presented as a highly attractive, coherently structured, full colour atlas, featuring sections on: Renal Tumours Adrenal Glands Pathology of tumours of the urinary bladder Prostate cancer origins, diagnosis and prognosis in clinical practice Tumours of the Seminal Vesicles Tumours of the Testis and Paratesticular Structures Squamous cell carcinoma of the penis Handling and Pathology Reporting of Circumcision and Penectomy Specimens Male Urethra Clinical Pathology of Urological Tumours is not only a necessary tool for the attending urologist, it will also satisfy the needs of oncologists, especially urololgic oncologists, residents in pathology or even pathologists, who are not daily faced with urological tumours.

Prostate Cancer from the Author: Leland W. K. Chung. Prostate Cancer: Biology, Genetics, and the New Therapeutics, Second Edition, reviews new, valuable approaches to the treatment of prostate cancer in men. The latest edition contains new material on molecular imaging, new treatments for prostate cancer, molecular targets, cell signaling pathways, bioinformatics, and pathogenomics. The book details the latest innovations and advances in prostate cancer and may be used as a rapid reference text for readers. The volume profiles the latest advances in cancer research and treatment and includes profound studies in prostate stem cells, cancer-host interactions, hedgehog signaling in development and cancer, cholesterol and cell signaling, gene therapy for advanced prostate cancer, and noninvasive strategies such as molecular imaging to visualize gene expression. This new edition also investigates expression profiling and somatic alterations in prostate cancer progression and linkage studies of prostate cancer families to identify susceptibility genes. The issues of racial differences in prostate cancer mortality, radiotherapy for the treatment of locally advanced prostate cancer, recombinant antibody candidates for treatment, taxane-based chemotherapy, lethal phenotypes, and novel and efficient translation clinical trials are also presented in great depth. Prostate Cancer: Biology, Genetics, and the New Therapeutics, Second Edition, provides readers with a general reference for prostate cancer from prevention to therapy and will be of value to clinicians, scientists, and administrators who strive to solve the cancer problem.
