Under the new editorship of Karl Kreder and Anthony Stone, and with an international team of contributors, this completely revised text covers all aspects of urinary diversion. Setting out the scientific principles of diversionary surgery, it also provides step-by-step guidance on the various operative procedures.
Divided into seven major sections, Urinary Diversion, Second Edition covers the following key areas:
a historical review of urinary diversion techniques
orthotopic bladder replacement
urinary diversion to an abdominal stoma
techniques that use the anus for continence
the prevention of reflux
future trends in artificial bladder construction.
The only book on the market to deal exclusively with urinary diversion, this superbly illustrated text is undoubtedly an important addition to literature in the field.
