It has been estimated that between the ages of 30 and 50 up to 40% of people suffer from some degree of incontinence at some time. Women accept that it can occur following childbirth, for example, and it becomes increasingly common in old age. In addition, there are cases where incontinence is due to spinal injury or associated with conditions such as diabetes, multiple sclerosis or stroke. But what is not known is that in many cases it can be avoided, alleviated or, in the latter case, effectively treated. The aim of this book is to raise awareness not only of women suffering with incontinence but also of those responsible for their care. All aspects will be dealt with, including its management and different treatments available. Written by an experienced medical writer in close collaboration with a team of highly skilled and experienced surgical and medical professionals, Female Incontinence is an essential handbook which will help women to realise that they no longer have to suffer in silence.
