Interventional Techniques in Uro-oncology
Wydawnictwo: Blackwell Science
Minimally invasive surgical techniques are moving into the mainstream of urological
practice. Even less invasive techniques, some of which can involve no use of the
knife whatsoever, are rapidly being developed and implemented for treating urological
cancer. Interventional Techniques in Uro-oncology is the first text to cover these
techniques in total and provides a comprehensive review of the state-of-the-art
minimally invasive interventions. This well-illustrated reference provides the basic
science behind each technique before explaining when and how best to perform them.
It examines their use in different clinical settings, the advantages and disadvantages
of each technique in the management of specific tumor types, and their suitability
for different patients. Future techniques are discussed including the potential
of nanotechnology in the delivery of urologic healthcare. Each chapter is easy to
navigate with key points and references. Interventional Techniques in Uro-oncology
is an essential reference for training and practicing oncologists, urologists and
radiologists as well as the general physician with a keen interest in cancer care.
Its approachable style will also inform non-experts on what is available and whether
a particular intervention is suitable for their patient in the clinic.
