Details

In the last few years, there has been a significant volume of research published in the field of urinary dysfunction. Urinary incontinence can affect both men and women of all age-groups with varying degrees of severity. It is becoming an increasingly dominant health care issue with enormous economic burden and places considerable impact on the overall quality of life, impairing several areas with physical, social, emotional and sexual limitations. This up-to-date and exhaustively written textbook addresses a very difficult, underestimated and probably inadequately considered clinical subject. This book provides comprehensive information on urinary incontinence and is primarily intended for medical practitioners, residents and medical students for daily practice. However the general public will find this book easy to read and provides ample information that is useful in understanding urinary incontinence. (Imprint: Nova Biomedical )
