Pediatric incontinence: evaluation and clinical management offers urologists practical, ′how–to′ clinical guidance to what is a very common problem affecting up to 15% of children aged 6 years old.

Introductory chapters cover the neurophysiology, psychological and genetic aspects, as well as the urodynamics of incontinence, before it moves on to its core focus, namely the evaluation and management of the problem.  All types of management methods will be covered, including behavioural, psychological, medical and surgical, thus providing the reader with a solution to every patient′s specific problem.

The outstanding editor team led by Professor Israel Franco, one of the world s leading gurus of pediatric urology, have recruited a truly stellar team of contributors each of whom have provided first–rate, high–quality contributions on their specific areas of expertise.  Clear management algorithms for each form of treatment support the text, topics of controversy are covered openly, and the latest guidelines from the ICCS, AUA and EAU are included throughout. 

Perfect to refer to prior to seeing patients on the wards and in the clinics, this is the ideal guide to the topic and an essential purchase for all urologists, pediatric urologists and paediatricians managing children suffering from incontinence.
