Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Sam Chang, MD (Vanderbilt University School of Medicine)
Description: This book attempts to summarize recent work on bladder carcinoma with specific emphasis on standard as well as newer treatment options.
Purpose: With numerous concise and well-outlined chapters, this work reviews many aspects of bladder carcinoma and includes examination of molecular genetics, imaging modalities, prognostic factors, pathology, and staging. The majority of the book, however, focuses on research involving treatment modalities which may prove more effective than current regimens. This book examines bladder sparing regimens, radiotherapy, chemotherapy regimens, combined radiochemotherapy regimens and other multidisciplinary regimens, hyperthermia, and surgical techniques.
Audience: Providing clinically relevant information to those who treat patients with bladder cancer, this edition uses an outline style for each chapter, which includes helpful introduction and conclusion sections that prove to be accurate and concise summaries.
Features: The editors use black-and-white figures and tables to elucidate certain points, and color photographs of surgical techniques clearly demonstrate necessary maneuvers for the described operations. The editors have asked both European and U.S. experts in the field to author chapters, although the majority of chapters from U.S. authors do come from a single institution, the University of Southern California. As with all works which attempt to synthesize a broad topic into a single, short reference, the breadth of each chapter is lacking at times, but there are numerous current and pertinent references and most important points are well covered.
Assessment: This succinct, well-referenced book provides an excellent overview of more recent findings and research involving the etiology, diagnosis, and management of bladder cancer and would be useful for the clinician treating patients with bladder carcinoma.
