All treating these patients should find some value and useful information in this book; it is an important update of the first edition." - Doody's Health Sciences Book Review Journal "This is a valued addition to the literature of prostate cancer. The clinical issues relevant to the disease are appropriately addressed and the book is one of the more current ones available. The authors are well recognized and their opinions in their respective chapters are presented clearly. All treating these patients should find some value and useful information in this book; it is an important update of the first edition." - Doody's Health Sciences Book Review Journal Reviews of the first edition: "Presently, early detection and treatment remain our best hope for the cure of this common disease. Dr. Klein has assembled an outstanding group of authors to contribute to Management of Prostate Cancer. Those who take the time to read it will have a much better understanding of the management of prostate cancer."-Foreword by Ralph A. Straffon, MD "...Klein's Management of Prostate Cancer provides a balanced and comprehensive review...the 20 chapters are well written and provide a balanced view of the issues in diagnosis and treatment. The book's best feature is that it presents both sides of the picture...Thompson and Foley present in a point-counterpoint style arguments that support or refute the effectiveness of screening, the clinical significance of detected disease, and the effectiveness of local treatment, as well as opposing views on cost and the quality of data from prospective trials...A second feature of this book is its practical approach to the management of prostate cancer and the complications of treatment...The third feature of this book is its emphasis on new horizons...Management of Prostate Cancer is an informative review, and most of the chapters should be readily understood by patients and physicians alike. The last two chapters, on the surgeon's and radiation oncologist's perspectives, would be valuable reading for any man with prostate cancer who must decide whether to undergo surgery or radiation therapy. The chapter on screening provides important insights for primary care physicians facing the problem of whether to recommend screening."-The New England Journal of Medicine "This book is a must read for any physician desiring a complete and up-to-date understanding of prostate cancer. All aspects of this variable, complex, and prevalent disease are discussed in the 20 chapters, with contributions from 43 clinicians involved in the diagnosis and treatment of prostate cancer...Outstanding discussions analyze risk factors and genetic markers...The Management of Prostate Cancer will provide the clinician with a current, complete snapshot of all issues involved in the diagnosis and management of this disease. It should be part of the library of all urologists. Pathologists, radiation oncologists, medical oncologists, surgical oncologists, and general surgeons will find this text very useful as a reference for the latest developments in this field."-Current Surgery "The book offers recent survey in the field of prostate cancer epidemiology, risk factor, molecular markers, diagnostic procedures (including prostate biopsy), transrectal ultrasonography, computer tomography, magnetic resonance, the techniques of radical prostatectomy, radiotherapy and hormone therapy. Moreover there are on clinical practice oriented chapters, as interpretation of pathological findings, perioperative care, life quality evaluation, posttherapeutical urological disorders and modes of sexual rehabilitation, as well as adequate instructions of surgeon and radiotherapeutist for the period following adequate treatment...This publication represents an outstanding work devoted to the current state-of-the-art of the diagnosis and treatment of cancer, based on molecular-biological technology. It gives a comprehensive view about new achievements in molecular oncology and about innovations in research of human cancers. ...The book can be fully recommended for medical oncologists, surgeons and gynecologists engaged in cancer treatment as a guide in this new rapidly developing topic...The book offers an up-to-date information on prostate cancer diagnostics and treatment and can be fully recommended to all physicians, especially to urologists, radiotherapeutists and oncologists."- Neoplasma "...this book is a comprehensive and concise update of the current knowledge of prostatic cancer...includes up-to-date information on the evaluation and treatment as well as the molecular biology, epidemiology and pathology of prostate cancer. Surgical treatment, radiation therapy, hormonal therapy, gene therapy and other therapeutic modalities are emphasized. Issues of early detection, quality of life and complications after treatment, and patient counseling are also broadly discussed...The strength of this book lies in its well-balanced and concise review of current diagnostic and therapeutic methods. Most of the illustrations and tables are good, and the references are current...The often ignored topic of hormone refractory prostate cancer is well presented...this book is practical, well illustrated and of value for those who would like to have a better understanding of the management of prostate cancer. It is a worthwhile resource for the general urologist, radiation and urological oncologists as well as for residents in training." - Journal of Urology "...this book is both timely and useful for all clinicians who wish to obtain a clear and up-to-date account of the management of prostate cancer." - British Journal of Surgery

Memoir of Wm; O. Baldwin, M.D., of Montgomery, ALA (Classic Reprint) Forgotten Books

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Excerpt from Memoir of Wm; O. Baldwin, M.D., Of Montgomery, Ala United States Senator, which position he resigned when Ala bama passed the ordinance of secession. William Baldwin's eldest son, Marion Augustus Baldwin, was born in Georgia, and removed with his parents into Alabama in 1816; he was attorney-general of Alabama from 1847 to 1865, and one of the ablest lawyers as well as the most popular man in the State. His father died when Dr. Baldwin was nine years of age,-leaving his widow with seven children, of whom he was the second son he received his education at an academy in Montgomery county, near his mother's plantation, conducted by Adison H. Sample, a man of great reputation in his day, a splendid linguist and a finished scholar. At sixteen be commenced to read medicine in the office of Dr. Mcleod, the leading physician in Montgomery, and shortly afterwards entered the Transylvania University, Lexington, Ky., in which institution he became the private pupil of Dr. Charles Caldwell and Dr. L. P. Yandell, then in conjunction with the eminent surgeon and lithotomist, Dr. B. W. Dudley, pro fessors in that university. At the unprecedented age of eighteen, he received his degree of M. D., a fact much regretted in after life when the importance of more extended study was more vividly realized. Some years afterwards, disagreements having arisen between the members of the faculty, the professors, with but few excep tions, resigned and established the Medical Department of the University of Louisville, and the Transylvania University became extinct. His mother having so large a family to raise unaided, was somewhat cramped in her resources, and found it impossible to give more than one of her sons a university education, and to that the elder brother was naturally enti tled. William, however, had all but completed his arrange ments to enter the University of Virginia, when the want of adequate means interposed an obstacle which it was impos sible to overcome. In 1837 he commenced the practice of his profession in Montgomery, and in 1840 entered into partnership with his former preceptor, Dr. Mcleod, who died twelve months afterwards. Becoming on intimate terms with the distinguished Professor of Obstetrics, Dr. William M. Boling, a strong personal attachment sprung up betweenthem, and after occupying the same office for some years, they formed a professional copartnership in 1848, which con tinned in force for four years, when their practice became so extensive that it was deemed best for their individual peen niary interests, in the matter of consultations, etc., to sepa rate, and the partnership was accordingly dissolved. Dr. Boling was a man of great learning, and perhaps of more sterling merit than any Alabama has produced. Dr. Baldwin and himself studied and labored together for eleven years for the advancement of science, and he afterwards became Pro fessor in Transylvania University, and subsequently at Mem phis. At his death, in 1859, Dr. Baldwin delivered a touch ing eulogy over the grave of this noble and erudite physician.
