The 5 Minute Emergency Medicine Consult. This reference textbook summarizes almost every complaint and condition that might ever be encountered in urologic practice and does so in a concise, well-organized fashion. Gomella, well known for his editorial expertise in publishing Techniques in Urology, accomplishes this goal in pages with the help of 23 associate and section editors and more than contributing authors.
This textbook is anatomically divided into seven sections with the first section dedicated to a comprehensive review of presenting problems and urologic complaints. This section should be very useful for formulating a differential diagnosis and instituting initial management of patients based on the presenting complaint.
The second section includes a substantial number of named urologic diseases and conditions and thoroughly summarizes them in a well-organized fashion.
These topics are treated more superficially than the previous two sections, but current references are supplied for further investigation if the reader desires to learn more. The fourth section gives a succinct overview of commonly used urine studies, including the expected normal values and significance of abnormal values. The fifth section contains a very helpful guide to the commonly used medications in urology.
The sixth section includes a brief overview of alternative medical therapies which are becoming ever more popular with our patients. The last section is an appendix which includes reference tables, the current TNM staging classifications, a few helpful patient questionnaires, and the Partin tables.
Although numerous tables are used in the text to present information, there is a notable lack of diagrams, algorithms, and photographs.
Although this is not a major flaw, hopefully future editions will contain more flow diagrams and algorithms, which are helpful adjuncts in understanding complex conditions, diagnostic requirements, and therapeutic alternatives.
MDR TB represents a significant escalation in management and containment protocol, and usually requires 2 years of treatment vs 6 mo , with costly medications and a high proportion of patients requiring hospitalization. Multiple sampling is also required. Numerous commercial kits are available. PCR testing is not suited as a follow-up to treatment because it is capable of amplifying dead organisms as well. The M tuberculosis bacillus, with all of its attributes as an infectious agent, has continued to flourish despite our best efforts to combat it, and will likely live among us for millennia to come.
The readily available PCR testing, with its high sensitivity and rapid return, combined with a high index of suspicion on the part of the urologist, will serve our patients well. Even if test results are negative, it is an invaluable negative, as we have eliminated an easily treatable yet potentially morbid entity and can confidently move forward along the appropriate treatment algorithm.
The relatively infrequent cases of advanced urinary TB highlighted by renal and infundibular scarring, hydronephrosis, segmental distal ureteral strictures, and late bladder involvement—complete with sterile pyuria or chronic scrotal draining sinus—should pose no great challenge to our ability to diagnose.
Conversely, those who present with LUTS, vague pelvic complaints, hematuria, or scrotal discomfort are easily missed among crowds of patients with similar complaints who are free of TB. Main Points Tuberculosis TB is less common in developed countries; however, the incidence of TB—especially resistant strains—is on the rise worldwide.
In the United States, new cases were reported in Urogenital TB arises from hematogenous dissemination from the lungs; the kidney, epididymis, and prostate are the primary landing sites.
Lower urinary tract symptoms, pyuria, hematuria, and pain are among the usual presenting symptoms. Traditional diagnosis of urogenital TB relies on the identification of Mycobacterium tuberculosis via urine culture. In contrast to sputum, results of staining of concentrated urine for acid-fast bacilli are usually negative. References 1. J Clin Microbiol. Genital and lower urinary tract trauma.

The goal of this book is to provide the reader with useful information in a quick reference format to help with the everyday care of patients with urologic problems.
Urologic diseases and conditions are common problems that are seen by health care providers. While this book is written primarily for urologists, any health care practitioner who deals with urologic complaints and conditions should find the book a useful resource.
Students of urology and residents and fellows preparing for oral and written in-service and practicing urologists preparing for certification exams will find the book a useful study aid.
This second edition has undergone extensive editing and updating to reflect the most current data possible at the time of publication. So much information is available today on the Internet, many are asking why medical books such as this are even necessary as a reference. While the reality is that virtually any topic can be searched for on the Internet, the ability to sort through the information presented, confirm the validity, and rapidly find the specific information needed is often very time consuming and can be prone to error.
Readers of this book can be assured that the information presented is held to the highest standards possible as it is written, reviewed, and further edited primarily by academic urologists and other academic specialists. The broad array of topics addressed in this book are based on reviews of published literature, major textbooks, grand rounds case presentations, validated internet resources, and actual patient consultations.
Coverage includes adult and pediatric urology, as well as subspecialty areas of urology such as urologic oncology, endourology, female urology, neurourology, andrology, infectious diseases, and renal transplantation.
While primarily written for practitioners in the United States, the table of contents has been reviewed by our international editorial board, who represent over two dozen countries, in an attempt to capture as many diseases and conditions as possible for international readers.
However, there are notable exceptions as this book is focused on a surgical subspecialty. Section I: Urologic Diseases and Conditions provides information on over major topics in the field of urology. The style of this section, while similar to the other books in the series, focuses more attention on the surgical management where appropriate.
A challenge with any surgical discipline is that, when reviewing published literature, this type of information cannot be found or is insufficient to perform this level of evidence analysis. The reader will note in this second edition the introduction of evidence-based medicine references in some of the chapters as appropriate. Many topics are further supported by algorithms and an enhanced online image library. Section II: Short Topics: A to Z consists of over 1, key concepts, diseases, presenting complaints or conditions in the field that the practitioner must be aware of but may not be worthy of a complete two page chapter.
Section IV is dedicated exclusively to a core discipline in our field, Urine Studies. Section V: Alternative Urologic Therapies Phytotherapy is a focused review that is of interest to patients and caregivers alike.
Section VII: Urologic Drug Reference is a very unique collection of information on hundreds of drugs used in urologic practice in the United States as well as some traditionally nonurologic medications that are clinically significant to the urologic practitioner. An online image library, available as a supplement to the text, can be found at www.
In any project of this magnitude, there are many individuals responsible for its success. Mark Dambro. Thanks to my former assistant Denise Tropea who provided key administrative support to keep the contributors and this second edition organized.
A special thanks to the over authors and editors who took the time to contribute to this edition. On a sad note, our good friend Dr. He was serving as a member of our editorial board at the time and will be missed by all of us in the field. We extend our condolences to his family.
Most importantly, I would like to thank my wife, Tricia, and our children, Leonard, Patrick, Andrew, and Michael, for allowing me to sacrifice many nights, weekends, and holidays over the last 2 years to complete this book. Please contact me if you have corrections or suggestions on ways to improve future editions of the book.
