The author has produced a comprehensive little monograph on the various urologic aspects of injuries to the spinal cord. Much of the discussion, as might be expected, is concerned with the effects of cord injury on the bladder, but other parts of the genitourinary system are not neglected. There is a good discussion of the physiology and anatomy of bladder function. The discussion of treatment of the bladder after injury to the cord is well done, all forms being given due consideration.
The book is practical, concise and well illustrated and should be useful to neurologists, neurosurgeons and urologists. It is highly recommended to all these groups, but it will be found helpful by all who seek up-to-date orientation in the urologic aspects of injuries of the spinal cord.
