About this book

This book describes basic urological conditions and their management, with flowcharts to illustrate each step of patient treatment. Topics related to the upper and lower tract, urological infections, trauma, incontinence, andrology, and uro-oncology are all covered. The management of each condition is explained through point by point analysis that details patient pathways.

Basic Urological Management aims to aid management decision making within urology and at specific points within patient pathways.
