Handbook of Urologic Cryoablation

Overview

As prostate cancer is the most common type of cancer found in men, the clinical and surgical commitments to treating it are enormous, as well as to be expected given the aging male population. Urologic cryotherapy is one such method for those with organ-confined or minimally-spread prostate cancer. The benefits it offers both patient and surgeon are hugely significant: it is minimally invasive, has a favourable success rate and complication rates, is followed by a short period of recuperation, is repeatable if ...

Overview

As prostate cancer is the most common type of cancer found in men, the clinical and surgical commitments to treating it are enormous, as well as to be expected given the aging male population. Urologic cryotherapy is one such method for those with organ-confined or minimally-spread prostate cancer. The benefits it offers both patient and surgeon are hugely significant: it is minimally invasive, has a favourable success rate and complication rates, is followed by a short period of recuperation, is repeatable if necessary, and costs considerably less than a radical prostatectomy.
Presenting their adroit surgical and extensive teaching experience with urologic cryoablation in the treatment of renal and prostate cancers, Drs. Daniel Ruskstalis and Aaron Katz, along with a superb team of U.S. contributors, share their mastery of this revolutionary technique with the reader, whether qualified or in-training.
An important, accessible guide to a ground-breaking advance in the treatment of prostate cancer, Handbook of Urologic Cryoablation is requisite reading for those urologic surgeons wishing to perform cryoablation effectively and efficiently for the patient's benefit.
