An Atlas of Prostatic Diseases, Second Edition
Roger S. Kirby
Taylor & Francis, May 15, 1999 - Medical - 96 pages
Prostatic disease consumes a major portion of health-care resources in most countries today. The aging of the population in western countries, coupled with rapid advances in technology, has caused a tremendous increase both in the number of patients seeking therapy as well as in available options for treatment. In addition, the current media focus on the subject has thrust it to the top of the medical and health economics agenda. An Atlas of Prostatic Diseases, Second Edition aims to bring these highly topical issues into somewhat sharper focus, while providing all of this new information in a concise, easily understood format.
This is an updated and expanded new edition of Dr. Roger S. Kirby's beautifully illustrated, internationally acclaimed atlas/text on the prostate and prostatic disease, featuring a key section on diagnosis. With new references and more illustrations as well as a comprehensive index, this second edition contains a large number of superb color photographs with accompanying text that explain the anatomy and embryology of the prostate, innervation and ejaculatory function, and the underlying mechanisms and causes of abnormal prostate growth. The atlas also covers prostatic neoplasia and inflammatory processes, pathology of the prostate, bladder outlet obstruction, benign prostatic hypertrophy, prostate cancer and prostatitis, and the diagnosis of prostatic disorders. In keeping with the book's high standing among experts in this field, the foreword to this new edition is by Dr. Perinchery Narayan of the University of Florida, Gainesville.
