About this book

Introduction

Overactive Bladder in Clinical Practice provides a timely and comprehensive update on the overactive bladder (OAB) syndrome. The symptoms of urgency, with or without urge incontinence, usually with frequency or nocturia, now defined as the overactive bladder syndrome, have become a hot topic in urology, gynecology and urogynecology. Epidemiological data show very high disease prevalence (19%), particularly when compared with other chronic conditions such as diabetes (2%) and asthma (7%). OAB symptoms impact severely on patient’s quality of life, causing significant impairment of patient vitality and limiting their physical role, similar to diabetes.

The OAB syndrome involves all age groups, both sexes and is frequently found in neurogenic patients. This book will cover all aspects of OAB epidemiology, economics, pathophysiology, conservative, pharmaceutical and surgical and is invaluable reading for residents and trainees in urology, gynecology and urogynecology.

Reviews

From the reviews:

“A well-illustrated reference book, providing information varying from definitions, anatomy & physiology and epidemiology to diagnosis and treatment of overactive bladder, with sections on diagnosis, pharmacological and surgical treatment as well as the socioeconomic impact of OAB and quality of life issues. … Useful reading for residents and trainees in urology and urogynaecology.” (ICS News, Vol. 8 (2), July, 2012)

“This pocket-sized book is a comprehensive overview of overactive bladder (OAB), a common condition that both urologists and general medical practitioners frequently encounter in their patients. … This is most suitable for general urologists and general medical practitioners who see patients with OAB. … Overall, this is an accessible resource for practitioners looking to develop a contemporary evaluation and treatment algorithm for patients with OAB.” (Alana M. Murphy, Doody’s Review Service, August, 2012)

“Editors Alan Wein and Christopher Chapple … assembled in this pocketbook an exhaustive update on OAB. … This textbook displays many instructive photographs and offers comprehensive information. Primary care physicians and urologists, frequently confronted with OAB cases, will undoubtedly find in this pocketbook a lot of useful advice for their practise.” (European Urology Today, Issue 5, October/November, 2012)

“This slim volume, written by two undisputed experts in the field, is a useful point of reference for anyone seeking to know more about this common condition. The nine concise chapters logically progress through the epidemiology, assessment, and medical and surgical treatment options of overactive bladder (OAB) and each could stand alone for the busy clinician trying to extend his knowledge. … this book is an excellent resource for the interested primary care physician, students and trainees.” (Charlotte Foley, Urology News, January/February, 2013)
