General Remarks

  • Salvatore Rocca Rossetti


This part of Urology covers two inter-linked issues: Firstly, the study of pathologies and diseases that are located or potentially located in a single part of the organ, thus leaving the rest of it healthy and disease free; secondly, the study of surgical peculiarities in the targeted removal of part of the organ leaving the rest intact and functioning, known as segmentectomy. The value of the relationship between these two groups of study is clear if one wants to consider the pathological, clinical, and therapeutic aspects of each field.
