This beautifully illustrated manual edited in one volume, by Dr Abraham Cockett, professor of urology at the University of Rochester, NY, and Dr Ken Koshiba, professor of urology at the University of Kitasato, Japan, is part of a series of surgical manuals edited by Richard H. Egdahl intended to present current operative techniques and to explore various aspects of diagnosis and treatment.
Undoubtedly, color illustration is a significant improvement in surgical teaching since it gives vividness, clarity, and a unique sense of perspective to a particular surgical technique. In this manual, the illustrations are made by expert artists with the utmost excellency and, in our opinion, are the most important achievement of this book.
The contents of the manual have been divided into nine chapters, seven of which are related to a specific genitourinary organ, and the two last chapters are dedicated to endoscopic surgery of the prostate and bladder.
