Urological Emergencies in Clinical Practice summarizes adult and pediatric urological emergencies and their management, diagnosis and treatment, in a concise, relevant and readily available form. Signs and symptoms are listed and specific treatments explained. This is a simple yet practical guide to the management of urological emergencies with an emphasis on common urological emergencies seen in everyday practice. Any clinician without previous urological knowledge will be able to make an accurate diagnosis and have a treatment plan to follow. A user-friendly pocketbook, this is easy to refer to in an emergency situation. Each chapter is clearly marked, separated and organized into sections with heading of Signs, Symptoms, Diagnosis and Management placed in a numbered fashion similar to an objective structured clinical examination. Some sections also have useful hints and tips. Aimed at residents in urology, it will also be useful to accident and emergency doctors and primary care physicians.

Industry Reviews

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)
