All patients with vesico-urethral dysfunction, regardless of the nature of the neurological process causing it, are investigated with the same diagnostic tools. Textbook of the Neurogenic Bladder provides physicians-whether qualified or in training-with excellent instruction for conducting thorough, efficient, and beneficial examinations of both adults and children using a variety of instruments and tests.


Clarifies the differing states of neurogenic bladder dysfunction
Describes the pathophysiology of neurogenic bladder dysfunction and the ways it alters vesico-urethral function
Provides an overview of quality of life instruments that help determine the main outcome of interventions
Covers imaging, electrophysiology, and extensive urodynamic studies in adults and children
Discusses new non-surgical options and new ways to administer traditional treatments
Includes a full chapter on a new classification system by its developer, Professor Anders Mattiasson

This well-illustrated text includes both surgical and non-surgical treatment options from international experts. The book will enable practitioners to choose the best treatments for optimal results.
