50 studies every urologist should know


This text describes the most influential studies that have shaped today's clinical practice of urology. Its scope spans the spectrum of clinical urology, including genitourinary oncology (prostate, renal, bladder, and testis cancer), stone disease, benign prostatic hyperplasia, erectile dysfunction, and female urology. Most included studies are landmark randomized controlled trials related to questions of therapy, but the selection also includes prospective observational cohort studies as well as some case series that have resulted in paradigm-shifting changes in patient management. Each individual study is succinctly presented using a standardized format that focuses on the most important aspects relating to its design and main findings. This is followed by a summary of relevant, closely related studies as well as a brief critique of each study's limitations.
