About this book


The practice and science of pediatric urology has changed rapidly in the last few years with the availability of new surgical techniques, more informative prenatal evaluations, and better biomedical substances. In Pediatric Urology, leading pediatric urologists from major academic institutions offer a unique practice-oriented approach to these new developments. Here, the practicing urologist will find informative, easy-to-read reviews of the modern evaluation of prenatal hydronephrosis, the standard treatment of reflux vs the newer injectable techniques, and the spectrum of hypospadias treatment along with new developments in bladder exstrophy. Additional updated topics include what's new in undescended testis, the evaluation of difficult duplication anomalies, voiding dysfunction and neurogenic bladders, pediatric stone disease, and the developmental problems associated with genitourinary defects.
Concise and clearly written, Pediatric Urology offers the practicing urologist up-to-date recommendations for treatment of the pediatric urology patient, as well as a clear perspective on where pediatric urology is going and how new discoveries are being applied.
