The Prostate Cancer Dilemma

Βοοk, Edition 2015

HYGEIA Group physicians contributed significantly to the content of the book The Prostate Cancer Dilemma – Selecting Patients for Active Surveillance, Focal Ablation and Definitive Therapy, edited by N.N. Stone (The Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai, New York, NY, USA) and E.D. Crawford (University of Colorado, Anschutz Medical Campus, Aurora, CO, USA), and recently published by Springer International Publishing.

This text provides an analysis of evidence on early prostate cancer and serves as a valuable resource for clinicians, surgeons and researchers in general with an interest in the challenges posed by this very common malignancy in men. The book reviews all the current developments (genetic markers, transperineal mapping biopsy and multiparametric MRI), while it presents a new intra-prostatic staging system.

Various biopsy techniques are compared, while it evaluates the usefulness of current technology in applying focal therapy. The chapters have been written by experts in their fields and include the most up-to-date scientific and clinical information. There are also links to procedural video content for each technique presented. HYGEIA Hospital actively participated in this unique effort, with the Ultrasound Department (Georgios Zacharopoulos), the Radiology Department (Spyros Giarmenitis) and the Prostate Brachytherapy Department (Vasileios Skouteris) joining forces. The chapter edited by the HYGEIA physicians compares for the first time the results of prostate elastography with corresponding findings after transperineal mapping biopsy, a technique that is being performed at HYGEIA Hospital since 2008, a first for Greece.
