This book summarises the entire field of adult neuro-urology in a concise, well-illustrated, and practical style.

Contents include epidemiology, lower urinary tract anatomy and physiology. This is followed by coverage of the pathophysiology of various types of voiding dysfunctions and a clinical section focusing on practical evaluation and treatment. A range of treatments from behavioral, pharmacological, intra vesical, tissue engineering and surgical are explained and reviewed. Other topics such as complications, sexual function, fertility, maternity aspects, and prognostic factors round off the book.

*Each topic is covered in detail and well illustrated.

*The reader will gain a full understanding of every aspect of adult neuro-urology.

*Facilitates improved clinical knowledge and practice.

Provides an essential and complete reference tool for students and established urologists, neurologists, physiotherapists and nurses, and technicians involved in the care of patients with neurogenic bladder dysfunction.
