  • Details the most recent current concepts on incontinence
  • Presents the current status of different surgical options in one book: an overview of conservative management, minimal invasive therapies and surgical management
  • Offers step-by-step approaches for surgical management

Over the past 5 years, a significant amount of new information concerning epidemiology, medical and surgical therapy for patients with incontinence has appeared. However, at present, there is no comprehensive reference book available covering the current concepts and treatment strategies in their full extent. In this book, every aspect on this topic is presented with a special focus on the latest diagnostic tests, surgical approaches, including laparoscopy, minimally invasive approaches, and medical therapies. Moreover, special topics such as use of biological materials in the repair of prolapse, male incontinence, economic aspects and the continuation of medical education are also included, with in-depth study of the newly-developed minimally invasive techniques.

Written by an international range of leading experts, and edited by four world-renowned leaders in continence therapy, this title is a state-of-the-art guide to both scientific study of the associated disorders, as well as their practical and clinical management. By bringing the reader up-to-date with current trends and methods, this book is also able to look ahead to future approaches and treatment plans, all presented in a succinct clear style and supplemented with more than 200 images

This work is for all practicing urologists and gynecologists, with further significant worth to other members of the vast multi-disciplinary team required to successfully diagnose, manage and treat the conditions covered.
