This book fulfils the need for a general urology text primarily urologists in training. It has a novel format by having a clinical chapter always preceded by a scientific foundation chapter. The scientific chapter is geared toward answering questions for boards and understanding pathophysiology, is concise and relevant. The clinical chapter is written around evidence-based medicine and in "how-to" format with algorithms, with reference to AUA & EAU guidelines, well illustrated.
Christopher Chapple is a Consultant Urological Surgeon at Sheffield Teaching Hospitals, Honorary Professor at University of Sheffield and Visiting Professor at Sheffield Hallam University. He is particularly interested in functional reconstruction of the lower urinary tract and the underlying pharmacological control mechanisms, and provides a tertiary service in lower urinary tract reconstructive surgery. He trained at the Middlesex Hospital where he completed his doctorate thesis. He continued there and the Institute of Urology in London for his sub-specialist training. He is Secretary General of the European Association of Urology, having previously been Chairman of the International Relations Committee, Adjunct Secretary General Responsible for Education, and Director of the European School of Urology. He is the Coordinator of the European Reference Network (ERN) for rare urogenital diseases and complex conditions (eUROGEN); a network of 29 healthcare providers across Europe. He was editor-in-chief of the journal Neurourology and Urodynamics from 2006-2016 and is on the editorial board of several international journals. He is an active member of many urological associations and societies including the British Association of Urological Surgeons, the European Association of Urology, the International Continence Society, the Association of Academic European Urologists and the American Association of Genitourinary Surgeons. He has chaired a number of guidelines initiatives including the NICE GDG on Male LUTS and the ICUD Consultation on Male LUTS. BAUS awarded him the St Peter's medal 2011 and SUFU awarded him the Lifetime Achievement Award in 2015. Prof. Chapple has co-authored 750+ articles, comments and letters in peer-reviewed journals, and has written several chapters and books.
