This book is an update on aspects of urology which are often forgotten in contemporary practice because they appear so mundane, but nevertheless are often the subject of incremental advances and form the basis of much of the non-oncological practice. This book reviews the upper tract, pelvo-ureteric junction obstruction, recent advances in renal calculus disease, pharmacology of the bladder and functional disorders of the lower urinary tract. It also addresses aspects of physiology of the lower tract and important issues of neurourology and urogynaecology. Laparoscopy is also becoming increasingly important and this is extensively covered in the context of an essential update on laparoscopic anatomy. This book therefore provides an important contribution to those who wish to have a global overview of what is new in functional urology and also act as a useful quick reference for others.
