Review quote

From the reviews: "This book will definitely be of interest to those urologists who have a specific interest in urethral reconstructive surgery. It covers all aspects of urethral stricture disease and has insightful chapters about the economic impact of stricture disease and the logistics and outcome from urethral dilatation and endoscopic urethrotomy, as alternatives to reconstructive surgery. ... There are useful tips and tricks describing what the authors do in particular operative situations including positioning, instrumentation used and postoperative care."
