The specialty of urology has evolved into a less surgical and more cognitive discipline. Indeed, most of what we do in our daily cl- ical practice involves nonoperative patient care. However many of our patients present with, what are perceived as, emergencies. Such 'emergencies' encompass a broad spectrum of diagnoses, ranging from the often mundane hematuria and orchalgia to the more striking renal colic, symptomatic urinary retention, Fournier's gangrene and testicular torsion, to name but a few. Frequently these emergencies require swift but prudent ju- ment in order to achieve a satisfactory outcome. Despite the plethora of these daily encountered 'emergencies, ' their descriptions are diluted in the voluminous urologic te- books available. By assembling this textbook speci?cally on urologic emergencies, these distinguished authors have cont- buted a unique and valuable addition to our urologic literary armamentarium. Their objectives are to present diagnostic and treatment-oriented information that can be accessed rapidly and ef?ciently. These goals are accomplished without comprising thoroughness. The book consists of 10 broad chapters divided into speci?c sections making the information easily retrievable. Diagrams and photographs are incorporated appropriately to highlight important points. Diagnostic and therapeutic tips of practical signi?cance are offered throughout the book. This superb or- nizational format provides a clear, logical and ef?cient approach to urologic emergencies and should serve as a principal reference for any physician dealing which these ubiquitous problems. I congratulate the authors and am con?dent that their gallant efforts will serve to better educate physicians and ultimately improve patient care.

From the reviews:

"A very readable and informative handbook that is impressive even at first glance. ... an excellent book, appropriately aimed at those on 'the coal face' of the urological service. The line diagrams are clear, the text well written and even the paper has a quality feel! Above all this, however, is the amazing quality of the radiological imaging ... . A good book which represents value for money and will probably prove to be indispensable to the junior urologist/urological surgeon." (Urology News, Vol. 9 (5), 2005)
