Description: This is a concise but thorough overview of the complications that can occur when performing laparoscopic urologic procedures and how they may be avoided and addressed. The book is systematically organized by complication type for easy reference.
Purpose: This book sets out to outline the potential operative pitfalls a laparoscopic urologic surgeon may encounter, the manner in which those complications may be avoided, and the management options for each. The publication of this book is quite timely as laparoscopy is increasingly being employed by many urologists in the treatment of both benign and malignant disease. This book clearly meets the objectives set forth by the authors.
Audience: While this book is written for urologists at all levels, it will be particularly useful to the resident urologist and the surgeon who is starting to learn urologic laparoscopic techniques. Both editors are well known and respected urologists with advanced laparoscopic skills.
Features: "The book reviews both the common and uncommon complications laparoscopic urologic surgeons may encounter. The book is divided into chapters by procedure and complication type. Each chapter provides a detailed explanation of proper surgical technique, a description of how a complication can occur, and how to recognize and address each complication. Each chapter provides ample evidence from the urologic literature to support its recommendations. The chapter on the medical-legal ramifications of laparoscopy in urology is unique and informative. "
Assessment: This book provides detailed, up-to-date information on the complications associated with urologic laparoscopic surgery. The practicing urologist who is incorporating laparoscopy into their practice will find this book very helpful.
