Overview

Atala (Department of Urology, Children's Hospital Boston) and Slade (Board of Directors, National Bladder Foundation) collect papers from meetings of the International Bladder Symposium, held in 2000 and 2001 in Washington, DC, in this two-volume set for medical professionals. All substantial areas of bladder disease research are addressed, including oncology and cellular biology, neurophysiology, neurogenic bladder and incontinence, immunology, inflammation and infection, muscle, matrix and obstruction, and new frontiers and therapies. Some specific topics include radiochemotherapy in locally invasive non-metastatic carcinoma of the bladder; the role of lipids and lipid metabolites in urinary bladder dysfunction induced by partial outlet observation; intercellular communication and bladder function; nocturia; urine-induced apoptosis in cultured bladder urothelial cells; the artificial urinary bladder; intravesicular pain mapping; and alteration of collagen three-dimensional architecture in the noncompliant human urinary bladder.
