The insightful letter from Mantica et al in response to our article [1] reports a trend for a decrease in emergency department (ED) urological consultations in Italy during the COVID-19 lockdown and highlights two major issues for urologists. First, postponement of urological consultations carries a risk of potential rebound attendances in worsened condition and larger numbers. Our hospital implemented measures in anticipation of this, reviewing and triaging [2,3] all scheduled appointments and adopting telemedicine strategies including phone consultations and prescriptions (with courier delivery), a huge endeavour given the sheer volume of ambulatory patients.
