ABSTRACT

This monograph focuses on the human ureter, summarizes many valuable clinical observations made over the past two decades, some published previously. It refutes opinions that ureteral pressures have no foreseeable application nor diagnostic value.

Using the peristaltic pressure method, supplemented by electromyographic, pharmacologic, and roentgenographic techniques, the authors have constructed a fine primer of ureteral physiology—one of the first. Data are accompanied by appropriate illustrations, tracings, and literature reviews, enhancing the value and comprehensibility of the book. The postscript provides a useful summary. The book, of attractive and pleasant format, reads easily and the bibliography is well selected.

Medical science advances in large part from animal physiology and in small part from clinical observation; theory progresses more rapidly in the laboratory. The clinical investigator determines the relevance of physiology to human diagnosis and therapy. The present volume exemplifies this evolution of medical progress.
