While the upper renal tract remains the sole preserve of the urologist, gynaecologists have traditionally been involved in the assessment and treatment of female lower urinary tract infection disorders. Childbirth is a major causal factor in urogynaecology, and women often present with a combination of menstrual, genital, urinary and colorectal symptoms which require a holistic approach. This book provides a comprehensive overview of the assessment and treatment of a range of urogynaecological problems: urinary incontinence; lower urinary tract symptoms; overactive bladder; recurrent urinary tract infection; haematuria; painful bladder syndrome and interstitial cystitis; pregnancy and the renal tract; ageing and urogenital symptoms; fistulae and urinary tract injuries; pelvic organ prolapse; colorectal disorders; obstetric anal sphincter injuries. It has been comprehensively updated to reflect current clinical practice and new research since publication of the original edition.show more
