Emphasizing the clinical problems surrounding urogenital tract dysfunction, this up-to-date reference details the basic science, differential diagnosis, and treatment of a wide range of neurourological conditions.

Covering recent advances in the neurobiology of the pelvic organs, the Handbook of Neuro-Urology

  • reviews the neural control processes that govern pelvic organs

  • discusses the pathogenic mechanisms behind neurological and smooth muscle disorders that produce bladder dysfunction

  • describes the management of impaired bladder, bowel, and sexual function after brain damage and spinal cord injury

  • examines various conditions that affect the autonomic nervous system and specifically result in bladder and sexual dysfunction

  • investigates lower urinary tract function in the elderly

  • suggests practical measures to manage urinary incontinence such as the use of pads, underpants, and appliances

  • and more!
