Overview

This book is intended to help plug the gap in the present library of urological texts, and should be a useful aid to revision and preparation for the FRCS(Urol) intercollegiate examination and probably other urological examinations. Based on the assumption that the reader has a basic understanding of core urology, the text primarily covers topics that may be encountered infrequently during training, are currently considered controversial, or are likely to spring to the mind of an examiner.
The text is laid out in short paragraphs and in note form using bullets to aid rapid revision. References quoted in the text have been kept to a minimum and are either those papers considered classics in contemporary literature or papers presenting large series of clinical experience.

The book contains black-and-white illustrations.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Sajal Dutta, MD (Vanderbilt University School of Medicine)
Description: This book covers a broad range of urologic topics considered controversial by the editors. Subject matter is addressed in both paragraph and outline form with bullet points.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide a quick review of controversial topics in urology that are often found on board examinations. Subject matter includes both pediatric and adult urology.
Audience: The book is written primarily for urology residents preparing for standardized examinations, although any junior urology resident or medical student who wants a rapid review of selected urologic topics will find useful information in this book. The editors are both well-respected genitourinary surgeons who have compiled a group of contributors who command similar respect in the field of urology.
Features: The book covers selected topics within the major fields of urologic surgery. Some of the more controversial subjects that are addressed include management of urethral injuries and the treatment of metastatic prostate cancer. The outline format makes it easy for the reader to cover difficult topics in a short period of time. However, like other review books, the editors assume the reader has a basic foundation of urologic knowledge. To gain in-depth knowledge on any topic the reader must consult more comprehensive texts or journals.
Assessment: This book has a role in the vast armamentarium of board review resources. I recommend it to anyone looking for a means of rapid review of a few selected topics in the field of urology.

Assumes the reader has a basic understanding of core urology while briefly covering topics either encountered infrequently in the literature, currently considered controversial, or likely to be immediately useful to an examiner. Nine contributors discuss aspects of: pediatric urology, infection and inflammation, stone disease, trauma and reconstruction, urodynamics, renal transplantation, oncology, and andrology.
