This is a comprehensive textbook covering one of the few remaining blind spots on the map of urological literature. To date only a small number of publications have been dedicated to the topic of urgent and emergent problems in urology, important though they are in everyday clinical medicine. The editors are both internationally recognized urological experts and have made the effort to present an in-depth study into virtually every possible urgent urological situation with which a urologist may be confronted today. Thus the book includes chapters on topics such as urological trauma, urosepsis, urinary obstruction, oncological emergencies, intra- and postoperative complications, acute problems in children, and many more.
Dr. Santucci is the Chief of Urology at the Detroit Receiving Hospital, one of the nation's first Level I trauma center and the only hospital built from the ground up to serve as a trauma hospital. He is an Assistant Professor at the Wayne State University and is a widely published expert in the field of trauma and emergency urology. Dr. Santucci also serves as the Director of the Center for Urologic Reconstruction™ at Detroit Receiving Hospital. The Center is a regional referral center for difficult cases in urologic reconstruction, including urethral injury, urethral stricture, and complex reconstructive problems of the bladder, ureters and kidneys.
