Urinary Tract Stone Disease

Springer Science & Business Media, 6 jan. 2011 - 720 pagina's

This book covers the entire subject of urinary tract stone disease from basic sciences to medical and surgical treatment of stones with the aim to cover the entire spectrum of this disease. The surgical management of stone disease has changed considerably in the last five years and our understanding of mechanism of stone disease has improved with some old concepts discarded and newer theories gaining ground. More than fifty internationally recognised experts have contributed (with 50% from the US and 50% from rest of the world, including Europe). The book is extensively illustrated with photographs, x-rays and line diagrams.

This exhaustive and complex reference work will be particularly valuable to urologists, nephrologists and non-medical scientists.
