About this book


Vaginal Surgery for Incontinence and Prolapse presents a comprehensive overview of vaginal anatomy and physiology, practical guidelines for office evaluation of incontinence and prolapse, as well as a series of detailed chapters on current reconstructive procedures for urinary incontinence, fecal incontinence and prolapse. Vaginal procedures including urethral reconstruction, fistula, diverticulum and others are covered as they relate to urinary incontinence. The challenging topic of ‘recurrence’ is also addressed.

Bringing together established and new practices in this emerging field, Vaginal Surgery for Incontinence and Prolapse is essential reading for both urological and gynecological surgeons involved in training or currently providing surgical care to women with pelvic floor dysfunction. 120 illustrations, most of them in color, enhance the text.
