Summary

This up-to-the-minute reference provides comprehensive coverage of the male and female sphincteric mechanisms and their connection to the pelvic floor as well as upper and lower urinary tract function-emphasizing modern approaches to the epidemiology, diagnosis, and treatment of abnormalities including incontinence, hypertonicity, retention, dyssynergia, and the overactive sphincter.
Highlights state-of-the-art clinical, urodynamic, electrophysiological, and imaging techniques such as ultrasonographic explorations of the female urethra!
Detailing lifestyle interventions, physiotherapy, disposable devices, and pharmacological therapeutics, The Urinary Sphincter covers
  • observations in embryology and infancy that contribute to pathological phenomena in adults
  • genital prolapse in females
  • recent developments in the engineering and the mechanisms of action of artificial sphincters, stents, and slings, as well as surgery, injectible techniques, and various sling procedures
  • neuromodulation and neurostimulation of urethrovesical function
  • contemporary surgical approaches for coordinated bladder function
  • reports from the International Continence Society on the methodology, standardization of terminology, and complications related to urethrovesical function and dysfunction
  • and more!
    Furnishing practical algorithms and nearly 3000 useful references, tables, equations, photographs, and drawings, The Urinary Sphincter is an invaluable and authoritative source for urologists, gynecologists, neurologists, physiatrists, physiologists, pharmacologists, physiotherapists, and medical students in these disciplines.
