About this book


Although most clinical urologists use various basic endourological techniques in their practices, the complex upper tract pathology and anatomy often requires more advanced endoscopic skills and instrumentation. In Advanced Endourology: The Complete Clinical Guide, leading national and international urologists in the field of endourology describe standard and advanced endoscopic procedures for treating upper tract pathology. The authors provide step-by-step instructions for the latest endoscopic procedures, ranging from upper urinary tract calculi and strictures to urothelial cancer.
Authoritative and highly instructive, Advanced Endourology: The Complete Clinical Guide offers active urologists and urology residents not only a comprehensive, illustrated guide to endourological procedures-particularly the more advanced techniques-but also a practical means to expand the range and scope of the procedures they perform.

From the reviews:

" excellent resource for general urologists and dedicated endourologists. It is currently the most comprehensive book on this subject available."-Weighted Numerical Score: 100 - 5 Stars!-Doody's Health Science Book Review Journal

"...a good book for those trainees who wish to specialise in endourology and it would be a useful addition to any urology department library." -The Surgeon

"This book … provides very much an American view of endourology. Each chapter … is very well referenced and covers world-wide opinion, which gives an international flavour to the text. … It is helpful and practical both for the everyday urologist and the endourological surgeon. It is also essential reading for residents who are working for their board or final fellowship exams. … The book is an excellent purchase for anyone about to sit the viva … ." (Chris Chilton, Annals of the Royal College of Surgeons, Vol. 89, 2007)

"This book represents an advanced course for all urologists since even generally simple procedures may become complex and unpredictable. For more complicated procedures usually only performed by urologists specialized in this field, an illustrated guide providing tips and tricks from recognized experts is also very worthwhile. … The authors, recognized all over the world for their expertise in endourology, must be congratulated with this helpful publication." (European Urology Today, December, 2005)
