Bladder injection of onabotulinumtoxinA for the treatment of
urinary incontinence due to neurogenic detrusor overactivity has
recently been approved by regulatory agencies in several EU
countries and by the FDA in the United States. This is the first
book to focus on the practical application of botulinum toxin
(BoNT) in the genitourinary tract. It covers in detail applications
of BoNT in the bladder and the prostate and pelvic floor, with
reviews of the latest clinical series and techniques in both adults
and children.Appendices containing easy-to-read instructions for
patients undergoing bladder and prostate BoNT injections are
included, in addition to procedural guidelines for nursing staff.
The book is written in a concise, clinically relevant style by two
leading pioneers in the field, who were the first to undertake
comprehensive basic research into the mechanisms underlying the
efficacy and potential uses of BoNT within the lower urinary tract.
