Introduces multidisciplinary approaches to functional bladder reconstruction
Presents six highly useful surgical approaches in separate chapters
Provides detailed animal model studies and surgical techniques as well as successful case reports
One of the most common problems for spinal cord injury patients is urinary system dysfunction. The book Functional Bladder Reconstruction Following Spinal Cord Injury via Neural Approaches introduces how to solve this problem using multi-disciplinary approaches. From animal model studies to surgical techniques as well as successful case reports, six kinds of surgery are presented in separate chapters. This up-to-date monograph will be a valuable resource for surgeons, urologists and neurologists caring for spinal cord injury patients. The contributors are a group of surgeons working in the fields of orthopaedics and microsurgery.
Editor Chunlin Hou is professor in Changzheng Hospital, the Second Military Medical University, Shanghai, China.
