Editorial Reviews

Booknews
The bladder infection syndrome, apparently much more common and devastating than thought a decade ago, is examined in 22 articles describing aspects of research into the epidemiology, etiology, pathology, and management. Contains an introduction, a historical review, and summaries of relevant workshops in August 1987 and November 1988 (NIH, Bethesda, Maryland) and the 1989 AUA conference. Other chapters discuss animal models, etiological and pathogenetic theories, light microscope findings in bladders of patients, hydrodistension and intraoperative urodynamics, a clinical, endoscopic, and pathologic approach to diagnosis, pharmacotherapeutic goals, and surgical therapy.
