About this book


In this second edition of his popular and widely acclaimed book, Eric Klein, MD, and a panel of leading authorities have thoroughly updated and revised its contents to include all the latest observations and developments that will shape the direction of clinical practice and research over the next 5-10 years. Here, the reader will find in concise form accounts of the latest trends in diagnosis and mortality, new PSA isoforms for diagnosis, PSA screening, chemoprevention, biopsy techniques, sural nerve grafting, and hereditary prostate cancer. Additional chapters reflect progress in the management of locally advanced disease, the use of nomograms to predict outcomes, the medical management of erectile dysfunction, brachytherapy, and deciding between surgery and radiation. The chapters on open and laparoscopic techniques, the selection of candidates for observation, pathological analysis, quality of life, and the management of rising PSA after definitive therapy have been extensively updated. A compact disk accompanies the book for downloading an ebook to the reader's PC or PDA.
Up-to-date and eminently practice-oriented, Management of Prostate Cancer, Second Edition, offers every physician-especially front-line urologists, radiation therapists, and medical oncologists-concise and authoritative guidance on today's best therapeutic regimens for the diagnosis and treatment of prostate cancer.
