About this book


This volume will cover many of the most prevalent challenges for the urologist caring for adult congenital patients. The first section of the text will provide a framework for transition to an adult care model as well as a general approach to patients with three of the most common conditions encountered in congenitalism: myelodysplasia, Hypospadias, and exstrophy. The remainder of the text will cover anatomic issues in sexuality, fertitlity and genital issues, lower tract management, as well as upper tract management. Lastly, urological care of the pediatric cancer survivor will also be reviewed.


Transition and Lifelong Care in Congenital Urology is a valuable guide for Urologists providing long term care and treatment to patients with congenital anomalies and urological age-related problems.
