Practical Urology contains a concise summary of select urologic topics, including those most confusing to trainees. The editors hope that trainees will use the text as a first primer for understanding urologic disease. Written by 68 educators in North America and Europe, the book spans 569 pages divided into 2 sections, “Basic Sciences in Urology” and “Clinical Urologic Practice.”

The “Basic Sciences in Urology” section comprises 21 chapters covering anatomy, physiology, pharmacology, pathophysiology, infection, imaging, and urologic instrumentation. The “Clinical Urologic Practice” section provides details on 18 select urologic diseases.
