About this book

This book provides a comprehensive analysis of the use of antibiotics in the urological setting. It is the first work to focus exclusively on the treatment of urinary tract infections, starting from the recent epidemiological and microbiological acquisitions in terms of bacterial resistance. 

The structure of the book reflects everyday clinical practice, and the sections are divided in line with the level of clinical severity, starting from the uncomplicated lower urinary tract infections and continuing to severe uro-sepsis. Particular emphasis has been given to patient-related risk factors, to the role of antibiotic prophylaxis in urological surgical procedures, and to the treatment of male associated gland infections. The final section offers a dedicated tool for easy and rapid consultation, helping physicians in the everyday clinical practice setting. 

The book offers the first practical guide for physicians who treat patients affected by urological infections. Further, it offers a simple guide to consulting for all physicians who occasionally care for these patients.
