  • GENITOURINARY PROBLEMS IN THE ELDERLY PATIENT SURGICAL CLINICS OF NORTH AMERICA Payne, C. K., BABIARZ, J. W., Raz, S. 1994; 74 (2): 401-429

    Abstract:

    Dramatic advances across several fronts have provided a marked improvement in the quality of life for the elderly urologic patient. Radical surgery for cancer is much safer than in the past, and our focus is on preservation of function or complete functional reconstruction. In other areas we strive to continue to deliver excellent treatment while minimizing patient morbidity. This is seen most dramatically in the treatment of urinary stone disease. Ongoing work in patients with BPH promises to provide similar benefits to this population in the coming years. At the same time, we must remember that our abundance of therapeutic options imposes a responsibility to individualize treatment so as to best serve each patient.
