The long-awaited book by two of the very few urologists in the world who specialise exclusively in functional reconstruction of the urinary tract. This volume covers functional reconstruction of the bladder and the upper urinary tracts of both male and female together with gynaeco-urological surgery.
The authors have worked together for many years and both have a personal, hands-on experience of the video-urodynamic evaluation of their patients. Their approach to the reconstruction of any part of the urinary tract is based on an in-depth understanding of its particular function and of the dysfunction that needs to be resolved. Every chapter, especially those relating to gynaeco-urology, contains original concepts and detailed descriptions of surgical procedures, some of which are not be found elsewhere.
The colour illustrations by Paul Richardson are based on more than 1500 original drawings by RTW: together with clinical photographs, these are presented with a wealth of surgical "tricks of the trade" and "pearls of experience."
The result is an outstanding and refreshingly innovative practical exposition of the "state of the art" of functional reconstruction. It is not so much a surgical textbook as a post-graduate communication - written for urologists, gynaecologists and uro-gynaecologists at all stages of their career. Few will read this book without learning a number of things that affect their surgical thinking and practise.
