The truly international authorship every month in the Journal is reflected in the Mini-Review section in this issue. One from the USA, one from Canada, and two from Italy. It is a great pleasure to the Editor that this is so, and I hope also to the readership and to those who make such excellent contributions. The topics covered are female sexual dysfunction after pelvic surgery, zoledronic acid in prostate and renal cancers, intravesical gemcitabine for superficial bladder cancer, and the reduction of patient discomfort during TRUS-guided biopsy of the prostate.
