About this book


Female Urology:A Practical Clinical Guide offers a hands-on reference for the management of challenging disorders of the female lower urinary tract. This volume features scenario presentations in which a patient presentation is described and followed by two experts in the field reviewing work-up and management of the problem.

The volume is divided into three, easy-to-follow sections. The first section, Evaluation, details the anatomy of pelvic support, the lower urinary tract, incontinency, and overactive bladders. The second section, Treatment, outlines treatments for stress urinary incontinence, overactive bladder, prolapse, and reconstruction. The third section includes case studies from various locales around the country, illustrating the proper techniques for the evaluation and treatment of problems relating to female urology.

A thoroughly comprehensive and innovative volume, Female Urology:A Practical Clinical Guide will be of great use to busy clinicians striving for the most current methods of evaluating and treating dysfunctions in female urology.

From the reviews:

"Goldman and Vasavada, with the help of more than 60 contributors have written this textbook dedicated to female pelvic medicine. … The book is divided into three main parts. … Physicians involved in the management of female urology and incontinence will appreciate this very practical textbook." (European Urology Today, August, 2008)

"Many books have been written on urinary incontinence and urogynaecology but this is a first work on ‘Female Urology’. … The work is clearly dedicated to a urological public and might serve as review book for urologists in training. … I enjoyed reading this book and found it most interesting for urologists in training." (K. Everaert, Acta Clinica Belgica, Vol. 63 (4), 2008)

“The aim of this book is to discuss the newer management of the three common conditions that female patients present to urogynaecologists … . This book achieves its aim by bringing to the reader a current view on the evaluation and treatment of urinary incontinence and prolapse. It is a concise overview on the common urogynaecological conditions and provides useful evidence to support practice as well as filling in gaps of knowledge in the less familiar areas of practice in the field of female urology.” (Ling Lee, Annals Royal College of Surgeons of England, Vol. 92, January, 2010)
