This compendium is written by world leaders in laparoscopic urology. The authors are drawn from various teaching urological institutions in the US and UK who have contributed their tips and tricks in performing the various urologic procedures. Each topic is limited to a few pages to produce a small and easy-to-read book. The book is extensively illustrated with line diagrams which are self-explanatory and greatly enhance the understanding of various techniques, such as position of laparoscopic ports or technique of throwing a laparoscopic stitch. This is the first book to offer a compilation of the techniques of several authors.
