Urogynaecological problems are one of the most common reasons that women are referred to the hospital services, and can account for up to a fifth of the gynaecological surgery waiting list at any time. Pelvic floor problems can have a huge impact on the patient's quality of life, and therefore should be managed appropriately. Compact, portable, and comprehensive, this new addition to the Oxford Specialist Handbooks in Obstetrics and Gynaecology series covers all aspects of pelvic floor function and dysfunction, and approaches to assessment and management in all compartments (the bladder, reproductive system, and bowel). Special chapters are dedicated to urogynaecological issues in pregnancy and childbirth, and also to the effects of age on the pelvic floor. Covering all material needed for those undertaking the RCOG Advanced Training Skills Module in Urogynaecology and Vaginal Surgery, this is an invaluable guide for both senior general trainees in Gynaecology, and subspecialty trainees in urogynaecology.

Uroginecologia. Trattamento del prolasso genitale e dell'incontinenza urinaria da sforzo
Vito Leanza, Nicola Gasbarro
editore: Minerva Medica
Il prolasso degli organi pelvici e l'incontinenza urinaria da sforzo sono patologie che possono coesistere in quanto i fattori che contribuiscono al prolasso e all'incontinenza sono simili e, nella maggior parte dei casi, sono riconducibili alla gravidanza, al prolungamento del periodo espulsivo, alla modalità del parto e, infine, a una predisposizione congenita di lassità tissutale con collagenopatia. Prima di correggere il prolasso e l'incontinenza occorre innanzitutto fare un'adeguata diagnosi. Gli autori del volume, partendo da tale presupposto, intendono approfondire questa importante problematica per aiutare lo specialista e valutare, nelle varie situazioni, quali interventi o terapie è necessario adottare di volta in volta per ottenere i risultati migliori. Vengono trattati alcuni interventi estremamente attuali riguardanti le patologie che maggiormente affliggono la donna, soffermandosi sulla terapia medica e riabilitativa dell'incontinenza. Successivamente sono descritti i principali interventi di chirurgia pelvica sui vari compartimenti, con accenno alle procedure più diffuse in ambito laparoscopico per la correzione dei difetti pelvici. Lo studio sulle problematiche uroginecologiche e la standardizzazione della terminologia completano il testo.

Functional Reconstruction of the Female Genito-urinary Tract
editore: Blackwell Science Ltd
This lavishly illustrated operative atlas consists of detailed, step-by-step descriptions of the procedures used in reconstruction of the female urinary tract from the kidney to the urethra. It is based on the extensive operative experience of two very experienced reconstructive urologists. The procedures described have been devised compeletely afresh or considerably developed during the course of many thousands of operations and thus represent a unique collection. Many of the procedures and "tips" have not been published before. The approach taken throughout the book is a functional one. The basic principles underlying reconstructive urology are outlined and emphasis is placed on the fact that the logic of each procedure is dictated by a thorough understanding of the particular functional abnormality involved. In addition there is a wealth of practical tips, observations and clinical pearls built up over many years of surgical experience which help to reduce complications and make operations easier. Each operative procedure is described by a sequence of colour photographs with running captions explaining the pitfalls and points of particular importance at each stage. It will be an indispensable guide to reconstructive urology for urologists and gynaecologists alike. "The illustrations are amazingly beautiful and very clear...This is an absolute MUST for all urologists, gynaecologists and uro-gynaecologists or anyone dealing with reconstructive surgery, it is a fantastic publication, definitely one of the best, if not THE best, of its kind in the past decades."
