Abstract

Objective: Various recommendations are being offered in order of priority in the diagnosis and treatment of urological diseases during the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) period. Since it may not be possible to provide information to all patients through telemedicine, additional methods are needed to reach all patients. This study aimed to determine the reliability and quality of YouTube videos that provide information on urological disorders during the COVID-19 period. Another aim was to assess the most shared and most viewed videos on urological disorders on YouTube and their usability as an additional resource in telemedicine during the pandemic.
