An invaluable and practical, yet comprehensive, resource for all those interested in growing their understanding of and expertise in pelvic floor diseases.
This edition provides greater detail on the importance of a standardised test, troubleshooting common problems and a more in depth discussion on common artefacts.
There are updates on the treatment of common functional/urodynamic diagnoses, including Detrusor underactivity, bladder pain syndrome and Detrusor over activity. Where appropriate, the evidence base for treatment algorithms is discussed.
Advances in diagnostic and prognostic tools which could have a role to play in contemporary practice, such as the use of patient reported outcome measures, electronic bladder diaries and other bio markers, are included.
The text recognises the greater understanding of the physiological processes that underpin conditions such as underactivity, painful bladder syndrome, and bladder outlet obstruction.
Novel pharmacotherapeutic targets and their evidence are discussed.
Over the last decade there have been advances in diagnostics, investigational studies and surgical techniques, and their impact on conventional functional urological practice is discussed.
