Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

'provides succinct descriptions of common urological conditions that trainees may encounter on the floor and in the clinics.'

'a fast reference guide for those on the frontlines of patient care.'

-Doodys Publishers' Club, Friday, April 25, 2014

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Costas D. Lallas, MD, FACS (Thomas Jefferson University)
Description: In this fifth edition of a pocket-sized reference for urology, the chapters are short and written in a concise, easy-to-read style, making it easy to search and absorb.
Purpose: The author sought to update his book with contemporary details, data, and treatments, and this remains a quick reference for those who need an explanation on the fly. It is designed as a what-to-do, not a how-to-do, book. It does not go into the detail of a surgical atlas, but instead provides succinct descriptions of common urological conditions that trainees may encounter on the floor and in the clinics.
Audience: It is intended for medical students or junior residents who are beginning to delve into the field of urology and are looking for a quick introduction to a particular physical presentation or ailment. The compact size and short, relatively superficial treatment also make it ideal for nurse practitioners, physician assistants, and general practitioners who are seeing a patient with a urological ailment that they need help in identifying, working up, and treating, or in describing to a consultant.
Features: The 36 chapters are divided into two broad sections, the first addressing common chief presentations of urology patients, and the second describing in detail common disease states in urology. Each chapter is organized similarly, starting with a description of the condition, including pathophysiology and small illustrations when necessary, moving on to an analysis of the condition, starting with history and physical, and then transitioning to the specific tests that may be helpful in its elucidation, finally listing management, purposefully omitting lengthy procedural descriptions and instead targeting treatments and their toxicities that will be encountered by a first responding practitioner.
Assessment: The author clearly states the purpose of this book in the foreword — it is not intended as a detailed treatise on urology that presents arguments, counterarguments, and the reams of data that support both. All chapters are written by a single author, not a foremost expert on that topic. This is a basic reference intended for those who need a convenient and accurate explanation to point them in the right direction. This quality is also the main drawback of the book. In order to streamline the size of the book, the author purposefully leaves out references and additional readings, which may prevent complete understanding in some situations. Regardless, the author has accomplished what he set out to do — create a fast reference guide for those on the frontlines of patient care.
