Surgery of Genitourinary Pelvic Tumors An Anatomic Atlas J. Edson Pontes, M.D. This atlas provides a uniquely accessible resource for the latest procedures in urological oncologic surgery of the pelvic region. Extensively illustrated with detailed pen-and-ink drawings, the book covers various surgical techniques with a presentation that is comprehensible, practical, and uniform throughout. The book opens with a thorough review of the anatomy of the pelvis, integrating bony structures and ligaments, muscles, blood vessels and lymphatics, nerves and plexuses, and urogenital organs. Subsequent sections address specific surgical approaches to pelvic urologic tumors. Each operative procedure covered is illustrated with step-by-step drawings that are annotated with concise descriptions of the rationale underlying the procedures, the different techniques involved, and potential complications or pitfalls. This atlas is organized into sections addressing:

  • anatomy of the pelvis
  • surgery of the bladder and lower ureter
  • urinary diversion
  • operations for urinary fistulas
  • radical prostatectomy
  • surgery for penile and urethral cancers
  • reconstruction of the urinary tract during surgery for rectal tumors
  • pelvic sarcomas.
With its concise commentary and superbly detailed illustrations, Surgery of Genitourinary Pelvic Tumors: An Anatomic Atlas will prove an extremely useful resource for urologists, oncologic surgeons and all other surgeons involved in the management of pelvic urologic tumors.
