A team of authoritative urologic surgeons reviews the latest advances in urologic prosthetic surgery and the patient management techniques needed to successfully implement them. These highly experienced clinicians fully describe each technique and process, providing proven guidelines for patient evaluation prior to its use, its surgical implantation, and postoperative treatment of the patient. The topics expertly covered range from injectable materials used in a variety of circumstances to artificial urinary sphincters, from urethral stents, penile implants, testicular and penile prostheses, to the newer penile rigidity systems.

"The book is best suited for the practicing urologist, but can also be used by the medical student and other interested allied healthcare professionals. The authors are all credible and well-known. The book spans the entire gamut of urologic prostheses, including tissue engineering, injectables, various stents and finally penile prostheses. The best features are the short concise chapters written by respected authorities in the field. All the chapters are quite comprehensive. This is a high-quality, well written, timely book. This is unique in the field, for there are few, if any similar books. A book such as this is needed to keep the practitioner updated on these ever-changing matters." -Doody's Health Sciences Book Review Journal "The layout of the book is clear and logical and the structure of each of the individual author's contributions is uniform and well illustrated...a useful reference text for trainees in urology and urologists who practice prosthetic surgery." -ANZ J. Surg.
