About this book

Bladder Pain Syndrome: A Guide for Clinicians  provides a comprehensive update in the pathophysiology, epidemiology, terminology, evaluation and treatment of patients with pelvic pain perceived to be related to the urinary bladder. The volume covers the tremendous evolution during the last decade in our understanding of pain syndromes and their diagnosis and treatment. It is now clear that Bladder Pain Syndrome belongs to the family of pain syndromes,  and therefore treatment has moved from the treatment of the bladder to the treatment of a pain syndrome with the special problems this presents when the pain syndrome involves urinary symptoms. Interstitial Cystitis was poorly defined and the interpretation and patient selection differed enormously around the world in many ways, making exchange of information unreliable and confusing. Bladder Pain Syndrome is clearly defined and the result is a much better patient selection. This volume provides state of the art background for making a correct evaluation and diagnosis of patients with pelvic pain and voiding problems resulting in a more focused treatment to the benefit of the patients. The volume also covers the close relationship between different pain syndromes including those outside the pelvis.

Bladder Pain Syndrome: A Guide for Clinicians will be of great utility to urologists, gynecologists and all health professionals dealing with patients with pelvic pain.

Reviews

“The book is most suitable for medical practitioners who encounter patients with BPS in their practice and participate in their treatment. … Medical practitioners who diagnose and treat patients with BPS should look to this condensed book for a thorough overview of the condition. It provides an up-to-date discussion of the background of IC/BPS, pathophysiology of the syndrome, and proper diagnosis and treatment. Overall, it is a detailed resource for practitioners looking to improve their understanding and management of patients with BPS.” (Alana M. Murphy, Doody’s Book Reviews, April, 2013)

“This new book provides a comprehensive update on the pathophysiology, epidemiology, terminology, evaluation and treatment of patients with IC/BPS. … While intended as a guide for clinicians, patients will have no problems in reading this text.
