Percutaneous Renal Surgery will provide surgeons and urologists/nephrologists with a well-illustrated, full-colour expert guide to performing these complex and difficult surgical procedures safely and effectively.
Focus throughout is on percutaneous management of three major conditions: large renal calculi (percutaneous nephrolithotomy), transitional cell cancer (percutaneous resection of tumor) and renal cell cancer (percutaneous cryotherapy and radiofrequency ablation).
For each of these conditions, leading surgeons and urologists will cover:
- Epidemiology of the disease
- Evolution of evidence-based outcomes for percutaneous management
- Patient selection and informed consent
- Surgical technique
