Overactive Bladder: Practical Management provides urologists, gynaecologists and other health practitioners with a comprehensive clinical guide to this very common problem, resulting in a perfect resource to consult time and time again.
Beginning with an introductory section covering the definition and pathophysiology of OAB, it then moves on to cover evaluation, first–line management, second–line management and finally surgery.
Well–illustrated throughout, each chapter begins with a key points box outlining the most important take–home messages. Also included are clear management algorithms to aid decision–making, Do s and Don ts boxes to help avoid errors made, key references to the top journal articles, and the very latest guidelines from the EAU, AUA and other major urology societies.
Chapters are written by the top names in the field and the entire book is expertly edited by Jacques Corcos, Scott MacDiarmid and John Heesakkers. The result is a consistent, comprehensive and fully up to date approach to OAB, providing urologists managing patients with this condition with rapid access, specialist clinical guidance.
