Overactive Bladder in Clinical Practice
The overactive bladder (OAB) syndrome involves all age groups, both sexes and is frequently found in neurogenic patients. The symptoms of urgency, with or without urge incontinence, usually with frequency or nocturia, now defined as the overactive bladder syndrome, have become a hot topic in urology, gynecology and urogynecology. Epidemiological data show very high disease prevalence, particularly when compared with other chronic conditions such as diabetes and asthma. OAB symptoms severely impact a patient’s quality of life, causing significant impairment of vitality and limiting his or her physical role, similar to diabetes.
This book provides a timely and comprehensive update on OAB syndrome. It covers all aspects of OAB epidemiology, economics, pathophysiology, conservative, pharmaceutical and surgical and will be invaluable reading for residents and trainees in urology, gynecology and urogynecology.
