The AUA's Clinical Practice Guidelines provide evidence-based guidance with an explicit clinical scope and purpose. AUA also provides Policy Statements, Best Practice Statements, Position Statements and White Papers to provide urology professionals with the best in peer-reviewed treatment recommendations and research.
Some portions of these guidelines may be outdated due to more recent research findings or technological advances, so the document, taken as a whole, may no longer be regarded as guidance for current medical practice. These documents have been updated elsewhere and are maintained for archival purposes only.
Hematuria is defined as the presence of red blood cells in the urine. When visible to the patient, it is termed gross hematuria, while microscopic hematuria is not visible to the naked eye but rather detected by the microscopic examination of the urinary sediment.
