This book aims to fill the gap created by the lack of formal training in cryosurgery, which leads not only to an underutilization of the technique but also to inappropriate uses with unpleasant consequences for patients. The book covers all practical aspects of cryosurgery and also offers a theoretical foundation for practice. Basic principles, equipment, and techniques are described, and procedures are explained step by step for a range of applications, including common benign lesions, vascular lesions, premalignant conditions, and malignancies. An important feature is the coverage of the latest advances in combination treatments such as topical drugs and cryosurgery, ultrasound and cryosurgery, photography and cryosurgery, cryobiopsy, and immuno cryosurgery. Use of cryosurgery as palliative treatment is also discussed, and the closing chapters consider postoperative care, complications, and future directions.

As prostate cancer is the most common type of cancer found in men, the clinical and surgical commitments to treating it are enormous, as well as to be expected given the aging male population. Urologic cryotherapy is one such method for those with organ-confined or minimally-spread prostate cancer. The benefits it offers both patient and surgeon are hugely significant: it is minimally invasive, has a favourable success rate and complication rates, is followed by a short period of recuperation, is repeatable if necessary, and costs considerably less than a radical prostatectomy. Presenting their adroit surgical and extensive teaching experience with urologic cryoablation in the treatment of renal and prostate cancers, Drs. Daniel Ruskstalis and Aaron Katz, along with a superb team of U.S. contributors, share their mastery of this revolutionary technique with the reader, whether qualified or in-training. An important, accessible guide to a ground-breaking advance in the treatment of prostate cancer, Handbook of Urologic Cryoablation is requisite reading for those urologic surgeons wishing to perform cryoablation effectively and efficiently for the patient's benefit.
