Review quote

"This is a high quality, comprehensive review of BPH management. The book covers the major aspects of managing a patient with BPH including a thorough discussion of pathophysiology, diagnostic evaluation, and medical/surgical/procedural intervention. The evaluation and pathophysiology chapters are handled quite well as are the minimally invasive therapies. This type of review, particularly if followed by updated editions, would greatly assist practicing urologists in providing a practical review of the topic and in staying on the cutting edge in treating patients with BPH.

Back cover copy

Numerous recent advances in the medications and technologies available to treat benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) raise many questions for practicing urologists seeking optimal therapies for their patients. In Management of Benign Prostatic Hypertrophy, a panel of internationally recognized expert clinicians and investigators in urology review the new treatments in the light of established urologic principles and tradition. The authors concisely evaluate the latest minimally invasive therapies, as well as time-tested surgical treatments, and review the medical therapies for BPH, namely a-adrenergic antagonists, 5a-reductase inhibitors, and their therapeutic combinations. Additional chapters examine the pathophysiology and natural history of BPH, its epidemiology, and the urodynamic evaluation of lower urinary tract symptoms, with special attention given to a more current understanding and treatment of postobstructive diuresis, a significant medical complication and frequent source of urologic consultation. Grounded in the principles and hallmarks of urology, Management of Benign Prostatic Hypertrophy satisfies the needs of practicing urologists seeking a concise up-to-date interpretation and analysis of the many new therapies available for the treatment of BPH.show more
