Urology has always been an essential part of a doctor's work, but because today's medical undergraduate's curriculum is so crowded, it has become even more necessary to prune away those matters that are probably only relevant to the trainee surgeon. As a result, Lecture Notes on Urology is a core text that will appeal to medical students, junior doctors, GPs and allied health professionals desiring a concise introduction to the subject. The author's aim, to integrate basic science with clinical practice, results in a reference text for both practitioners and students. The fifth edition of Lecture Notes on Urology contains new information on: imaging in urology (including the CT scan and MRI); the new role of minimally invasive therapy ultrasound in the early detection of congenital urinary abnormalities; sickle cell disease; new techniques for managing kidney stones; combination therapy in the treatment of bladder cancer; and advances in the diagnosis and management of incontinence, benign enlargement of the prostate, prostate cancer (including screening), metastases, urethral strictures, impotence, male infertility, cancer of the testes, and the complication of vasectomy.
