    The editors of this comprehensive third edition of the Textbook of the Neurogenic Bladder have assembled an impressive team of world specialists to develop an essential resource for physicians, continence specialists, and other health care professionals involved in the diagnosis and management of patients who have lost normal bladder function.

    The book provides a succinct update on epidemiology and briefly covers lower urinary tract anatomy and physiology. This is followed by a discussion on the pathophysiology of various types of dysfunctions and a clinical section that focuses on evaluation and treatment.

    Different types of treatments from behavioral to surgical are reviewed, including the most recent and sophisticated pharmacotherapy and tissue engineering approaches. A special section is devoted to myelomeningocele, a congenital condition with lifelong repercussions on voiding.

    Other topics such as complications, sexual function, fertility, maternity aspects, and prognostic factors round off the book. Each topic is covered in detail by several authors for a better overall understanding. A selection of reports and guidelines in relation to neurogenic bladder dysfunction is also included.

    This revised edition builds on the strong reputation of its predecessors. It is an essential reference tool for urologists, nurses, and technicians involved in the care of patients with neurogenic bladder dysfunction.
