The classic reference on female incontinence was updated and revised to become a modern approach to all female pelvic floor dysfunctions, including urinary incontinence, other lower urinary tract conditions, disorders of the anus and rectum, and disorders of pelvic support. The book reviews relevant anatomy, describes the clinical examination and diagnostic tests, and provides current information on the diagnosis, physiology, and medical and surgical treatment of specific disorders.
This edition describes many new surgical techniques for correcting incontinence and discusses new drugs and injectables for incontinence. The book also describes the use of biosynthetic material to aid in surgical repair.
