Book News Annotation:
Dorey (physiotherapy, U. of the West of England) has revised her 2001 textbook Conservative Treatment of Male Urinary Incontinence and Erectile Dysfunction with seven new chapters and extensively updated original chapters. She writes primarily for specialist continence physiotherapists who are unsure of the treatment for male patients with lower urinary tract symptoms, but suggests that the material might also be useful to urinary and continence specialty nurses, advisers, and students on urology placement. Annotation ©2006 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
Following on from the first book entitled ‘Conservative treatment of Male Urinary Incontinence and Erectile Dysfunction’ this book has been expanded to include seven new chapters and existing chapters have been extensively updated. It is written primarily for those specialist continence physiotherapists who are unsure of the treatment for male patients with lower urinary tract symptoms.
The classification of male urinary incontinence has been restructured in line with the International Continence Society standardisation of terminology. The subjective and objective physiotherapy assessment is covered chronologically, to enable the clinician to conduct a meaningful investigation and arrive at a logical diagnosis.

About the Author
"The glossary of terms is useful and contains many common terms used in the specialty; for the student, it would be helpful to provide clarification of the terms ‘nocturia' and ‘urgency'." (Physiotherapy Journal, March 2010)"This is a welcome addition to the field and should be of interest to a wide variety of healthcare providers who care for these patients." (Doody's Health Services)
