Book Description

Completely revised and updated, Textbook of Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia, Second Edition provides a state-of-the-art overview of the entire field. The first edition of this breakthrough book was very well received by urologists around the world and became the standard reference work on the subject of Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia (BPH). With the constant changes and improvements being made in therapeutics and treatment in general, any book on this important subject needs to be updated frequently.

The first edition's original sections have been expanded and, once again, a team of expert editors and contributors ensure that the material presented reflects the latest available information.The editorial panel examines all aspects of the disorder, from pathophysiology to the latest treatments and clinical trials including MTOPS and PREDICT. They explore laser prostatectomy using the holmium laser and a host of other minimally invasive techniques that are seriously challenging standard transurethral resection (TUR) as the gold standard intervention for this disease. Building on the foundation of the first edition, this second edition will continue to be the quintessential resource on BPH.
