Doody's Review ServiceReviewer: Randy G. Nixon, MD (Vanderbilt University Medical Center)
Description: This updated edition is a concise review of key urologic disorders encountered in both the inpatient and outpatient settings. This edition is structured to provide a quick review of a problem, including background information, definition of terms, and differential diagnosis. Emphasis is then directed towards making the diagnosis and outlining therapeutic options.
Purpose: The purpose is similar to that of the first edition published nine years ago, which is to present urologic problems and therapeutic principles.
Audience: This manual, as a result, serves as a valuable source of information for the medical student and urology house officer taking care of patients. Up-to-date and useful information is also provided for primary care providers who may have the initial encounter with patients with urologic complaints.
Features: The common problems encountered in urology are covered, including radiologic imaging, diagnosis and treatment of malignancy, urinary calculi, erectile dysfunction, neuro-urology, and adrenal and renal disease. Salient features include the outline format, which make scanning the book for information easier. Furthermore, the updated information of this second edition is an appropriate reflection of the expanding database in a multitude of urologic fields.
Assessment: This manual should serve as a valuable and often used resource for students and residents to refer to on a daily basis.
