BAUS Consensus Documents & Guidelines


European Association of Urology (EAU) Guidelines

The EAU produces evidence-based guidelines for the management of both benign and malignant urological conditions. Being guidelines (and not protocols), they are advisory rather than proscriptive.

A complete collection of all EAU guidelines, in a single volume, can be downloaded using the link below.

In addition, the EAU has released an app containing a "pocket" version of its guidelines; to obtain this app, go to your provider's App Store and search for "EAU Pocket Guidelines".
