Urology Handbook from C.H.I.P.S.

Evidence-Based Urology
edited by Philipp Dahm

Evidence-Based Urology provides up-to-date information on the appropriateness of both medical and surgical treatment options for a broad spectrum of urological conditions based on the current best evidence.

This book provides practical recommendations for the care of individual patients. Each chapter addresses a series of focused clinical questions that are addressed in a systematic fashion, including a comprehensive literature search, a rating of the quality of evidence, and an assessment of ratio of benefit and harm of a given treatment option.

Evidence-Based Urology is an invaluable source of evidence-based information distilled into guidance for clinical practice.
