About this book

The minimally invasive use of botulinum toxin (BoNT) in the lower urinary tract has revolutionized the treatment of debilitating bladder, urethra, and prostate conditions refractory to conventional therapy.  This is the first book focusing on the practical application of BoNT to the genitourinary tract.  An introductory section discusses the biology, pharmacology, and safety of BoNT in the lower urinary tract.  Applications of BoNT in the bladder and the prostate and pelvic floor are then covered in detail, with reviews of the latest clinical series and techniques of BoNT injection in both adults and children.  The book closes by considering non-genitourinary uses of BoNT and addressing issues of health economics as well as providing insights from experts from across the world.  This is a practical, hands-on book that also includes appendices containing easy to read instructions for patients undergoing bladder and prostate BoNT injections and specific nursing procedural issues.

 

The book is written in a concise, uniform, and clinically relevant style by two leading pioneers in the field, Drs. Michael Chancellor and Christopher Smith, who were the first to undertake comprehensive basic research into the mechanisms underlying the efficacy and potential uses of BoNT within the lower urinary tract.  Botulinum Toxin in Urology will be of interest to all urologists and urogynecologists who are considering the use of BoNT in their practice. 

Reviews

From the reviews:

“This book will be a very welcome addition to the urology library since it is the first book on the use of botulinum toxin (BoNT) in the genitourinary tract and is written and edited by two leading pioneers in the field, Michael Chancellor and Christopher Smith.” (International Painful Bladder Foundation, January, 2012)

“This first edition book on botulinum toxin (BoNT) is devoted to its medical applications in the genitourinary tract. … All information is supported by extensive references. The text is complemented with numerous easy-to-read tables, and very well designed figures and graphics, some in colour and some black and white. This concisely written, practical, hands-on book is an excellent source of information for all involved in BoNT treatment, including students, residents, fellows, physicians and nurses.” (Jane Meijlink and Jerzy Gajewski, ICS News, Vol. 8 (1), January, 2012)
