About this book

This text provides a comprehensive, state-of-the-art review of this field, and will serve as a valuable practical resource for clinicians with an interest in conducting urodynamics. The book reviews new data about the indications, conduct and interpretation of various aspects of urodynamic testing. With an emphasis on clinical urodynamics, it is arranged into sections that correspond with the basic elements of urodynamic testing; noninvasive urodynamics (uroflow and post void residual), cystometrogram, storage studies (leak point pressures, stability, compliance and capacity) and voiding phases (pressure flow study). Other testing modalities that are discussed include EMG testing, fluoroscopy, and provocative maneuvers.

Practical Urodynamics for the Clinician will serve as a very useful and practical resource for physicians and researchers dealing with, and interested in, this complex physiologic testing tool. It will provide a concise yet comprehensive summary of the field that will help guide the selection of patients for the study, preparation of the patient, the conduct of the study and finally the interpretation of the urodynamics evaluation.

Reviews

“This textbook provides a practical update on UD. Figures and photographs are useful and appropriate. This publication is a recommended purchase for urologists and physicians involved in incontinence and low urinary tract symptoms management.” (European Urology Today, June-July, 2016)

“Urologists interested in setting up a urodynamics practice should look to this book for helpful tips about the equipment and design of a functional urodynamics suite. Both practitioners new to urodynamics and veterans of lower urinary tract evaluation can use this as a condensed review of the different components of urodynamic testing. Overall, it would be a helpful addition for any urology practice.” (Alana Murphy, Doody's Book Reviews, March, 2016)
