About this item
The aim of this user friendly guide for the practice urologist will be to integrate the recommendation from the meeting of the International Consensus Group on Urological Disease into a concise text which outlines in a concise and easy to use format how to most effectively deal with urethral strictures. In addition to summarising the international consensus on what the literature specifies about how to manage strictures, the emphasis of the book will be to define the different types of strictures, the underlying anatomy of the urethra and how this relates to pathophysiology and the indications of this for stricture management. The book will explore diagnostic techniques and consider the appropriate evaluation of strictures at diagnosis and during follow up. The surgical equipment necessary for such surgery will be explored in detail, identifying all of the equipment a surgeon needs to carry out this surgery and identifying specific points of technique. The surgical procedures used for the management of the different types of stricture are reviewed in a simple step by step approach using easy to follow diagrams. This will provide all of the information that any surgeon needs in order to carry out surgery for patients with strictures - providing a concise but comprehensive aid memoire for any urological surgeon, irrespective of their expertise.
