Technology such as catheters, lasers, stents, telescopes, and diathermy are all discussed in detail and at a level suitable for the FRCS(Urol) examinations. The principles of consent and the recent Montgomery ruling are included in the fourth edition. The surgical principles of a range of urological operations are outlined, ranging from inguinoscrotal procedures to pelvic oncology procedures, including reconstruction.
