About this book

A valuable resource for the health care practitioner treating patients with incontinence and prolapse, Pessaries in Clinical Practice provides a comprehensive review of the evidence con-cerning pessaries and the practicalities of using them.The authors provide profiles of the inventors of some of those more commonly used along with a description of their original purposes. The book provides a significant amount of evidence supporting the use of pessaries for pelvic organ prolapse and incontinence. It goes on to discuss the practical issues involved with the selection, fitting and care of the most popu-lar pessaries. The text-enhancing illustrations guide selection, fitting and care and provide useful information to share with patients.

This work is an essential quick-reference handbook for all urogynecologists, urologists, gynecologists, family physicians and specialty nurses.

Reviews

From the reviews:

"This volume certainly lives up to expectations. It is easily read in about 2 hours and is very logical in its approach … . This book adds to existing knowledge and I have found it invaluable … . I would recommend the book to all general practitioners, nurse practitioners, trainee obstetricians and gynaecologists and also practising consultants who are involved in the care of women with prolapses with or without associated incontinence. It should be in every obstetrics and gynaecology department!" (The Obstetrician and Gynaecologist, 2008)
