The term ‘bladder disorders’ encompasses a number of lower urinary tract dysfunctions and abnormalities that negatively affect quality of life. Some can cause considerable morbidity and even mortality. Three internationally recognized authors with different areas of expertise – a leading British urogynecologist, a chief of urology listed as one of America’s “Best Doctors”, and an American continence expert – have ensured that this second edition of Fast Facts: Bladder Disorders is internationally relevant to the non-specialist working within a multidisciplinary team.
Based on robust evidence and clinical experience, and supported by superb illustrations, this fact-filled handbook covers everything you will need to recognize the symptoms and signs of a wide range of bladder disorders from urinary incontinence to hematuria to UTIs. It also provides an excellent overview of basic pathophysiology, and will help practitioners initiate screening and assessment and, where appropriate, treatment.
'...an excellent book to update a professional’s knowledge, very useful for student nurses and trainee doctors alike.'
The Journal of the Bladder and Bowel Foundation (Jan 2012)
'As to be expected in the Fast Facts series, the textbook is richly illustrated, contains many tables and clearly marked or highlighted by key points, key references and decisional trees. We recommend this textbook for urologists whether they are still in training or already certified.'
Prof.Dr. Paul Meria, European Urology Today (Feb 2012)
'This is an excellent review of the fundamentals of assessment and management of the lower urinary tract for both practicing urologists and nonspecialists, who can use it to identify and initiate treatment for a patient with a common lower urinary tract dysfunction.'
