Approximately 20% of all surgical operations and a similar percentage of surgical emergencies are urological in nature. However, often doctors have very limited experience of the many common and varied conditions encountered in this important surgical specialty. For the doctor or nurse expected to provide the initial assessment and management of a condition with which he or she has had very limited experience, this book provides an invaluable source of information and advice. This applies not only to SHOs and specialist registrars on urology and surgical rotations, but also to General Practitioners, Accident and Emergency staff and the growing number of urological specialist nurses. This handbook provides a comprehensive summary of urological disease and its management, in a form that is concise, relevant to the target audience and readily available. While the description of urological conditions is comprehensive, the emphasis is on the practical approach to the conditions which are likely to be encountered.
The significance and appropriate management of common symptoms is described, providing (on a single page) a summary of the essential approach to a specific presenting complaint, be that haematuria, scrotal pain or bedwetting. Common urological operations are described, to allow the General Practitioner, Accident and Emergency doctor, nurse or surgical trainee, rapid access to information concerning indications, pre-operative assessment, consent, and complications and their management.
