About this book

Chronic Prostatitis is a common and debilitating condition affecting 5-12% of men worldwide. The most common form is category III, or Chronic Pelvic Pain Syndrome. Cutting-edge clinical research has led to advancements in the diagnosis and treatment of prostatitis, a group of conditions that is at once extremely common, poorly understood, inadequately treated and under-researched. In Chronic Prostatitis / Chronic Pelvic Pain Syndrome, the author provides today’s most current information covering the four categories of prostatitis (acute, chronic bacterial, CPPS and asymptomatic inflammation). A diverse international group of contributors that includes Urologists (academic, primary care and front line private practice), scientists, psychologists, and pain specialists from the National Institutes of Health provide the reader with novel approaches to helping their patients. The chapters in this important new work cover general evaluation of the prostatitis patient, the approach to acute prostatitis, chronic bacterial prostatitis and chronic pelvic pain syndrome, evidence behind individual therapies and ancillary topics such as erectile dysfunction, infertility, the link between chronic prostatitis and prostate cancer, male interstitial cystitis and the potential etiologic role of calcifying nanoparticles. Chronic Prostatitis / Chronic Pelvic Pain Syndrome offers novel approaches to diagnosing this condition as well as providing ways in which to ease the suffering of the patient with prostatitis.

Reviews

From the reviews:

"This work makes novel inroads into our contemporary understanding of prostatitis. … The clinical relevance of this work makes it ideally suited for medical students, urology residents, and practicing urologists. Those nonurologists involved in chronic pain management and integrative medicine will benefit … . The vast majority of the clinically relevant progress in the field of prostatitis has emerged in the past decade. This book provides a readable and practical synthesis of these contemporary advances." (Irvin H Hirsch, Doody’s Review Service, September, 2008)

"This clear and concise book, written by a multidisciplinary, international group of contributors, covers the NIH four categories of prostatitis: acute, chronic bacterial, chronic pelvic pain syndrome and asymptomatic inflammation, providing practical guidelines for evaluation, diagnosis and treatment. … The aim of this book is to achieve better understanding and management of this large group of patients and to help maximise quality of life … . this excellent book which will be an indispensable guide to everyone involved in treating these patients." (ICS News, Vol. 5 (2), July, 2009)
