50 Studies Every Urologist Should Know presents key studies that have shaped the practice of urology. Selected using a rigorous methodology, the studies cover topics including reflux disease in paediatric urology, management of male erectile dysfunction and lower urinary tract symptoms, female urology and stone disease, the various forms of genitourinary cancer, and more. For each study, a concise summary is presented with an emphasis on the results and limitations of the study, and its implications for practice. An illustrative clinical case concludes each review, followed by brief information on other relevant studies. This book is a must-read for healthcare professionals in urology, as well as anyone who wants to learn more about the data behind clinical practice.
