This new textbook of urology covers well the progress in the field which has been attained in the past decade. The section on transurethral surgery of the bladder neck is especially thorough and reflects the views of not only the enthusiastic resectionist but also the general urologist. The newer concept of malignancy, especially of the prostate gland, is thoroughly and adequately discussed. Modern surgical procedures in urology are dealt with throughout the book.
The chemotherapy and antibiotic therapy used in the modern treatment of urinary infections are gone into in detail and brought up to date. Preoperative and postoperative care and examination are dwelt on in detail, and all the newer methods of fluid control, protein balance and other methods are compactly assembled. Also the section on laboratory procedures in diagnostic urology is very good.
In the opinion of this reviewer "The Practice of Urology" is a complete coverage of
The Practice of Urology. Arch Intern Med (Chic). 1950;86(4):644–645. doi:10.1001/archinte.1950.00230160156015
