Overview

Nocturia: Causes, Consequences and Clinical Approaches is the first volume exclusively on the topic of nocturia and is designed to be a comprehensive treatise on the subject. The volume is organized into 11 chapters first introducing and defining nocturia and its impact to patients and society, followed by chapters dealing with predictors and risk factors; relationship to sleep disorders; overactive bladder; and water homeostasis. Therapeutic areas addressing nocturia are covered in specific chapters and include pharmacotherapy affecting the bladder, prostate and kidneys as well as behavioral therapy and surgical intervention. Separate chapters are devoted to alternative therapies as well as the impact of nocturia in the elderly. The volume closes with a chapter presenting avenues for future investigation into the etiology and management of nocturia. Clinical case scenarios inclusive of figures and tables illuminate the evaluation and management of patients with nocturia.

Nocturia: Causes, Consequences and Clinical Approaches will give physicians and related healthcare providers the background to understand the conditions causing nocturia, how nocturia affects society and the basis for its rational treatment. It will be used as a state of the art reference by urologists, urogynecologists, internists, nephrologists, pulmonologists, endocrinologists and sleep medicine specialists.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Alana M Murphy, MD (Thomas Jefferson University)
Description: This is a comprehensive overview of nocturia, a diagnosis that often frustrates and intimidates urologists. Contributions are provided by specialists in urology, geriatrics, and sleep disorders, and editorial oversight is provided by recognized experts in voiding dysfunction.
Purpose: The editors have compiled chapters that characterize nocturia, review its clinical work-up, and outline its consequences. They also provide an exhaustive review of the potential contributing factors and finish with an overview of treatment strategies.
Audience: The book is most suitable for urologists who encounter a significant number of patients with nocturia in their daily practice. Although patients with nocturia are certainly seen by other specialists, such as geriatricians or sleep disorder specialists, this book's degree of detail and lack of concise algorithms make it unsuitable as a quick reference.
Features: The introductory chapter is the most comprehensive and concise, providing definitions of terms relevant to the diagnosis of nocturia, classification of nocturia into subtypes based on etiology, evaluation of nocturia, consequences of nocturia, and a brief overview of therapy. Chapters two through six explore the epidemiology, potential etiologies, and consequences of nocturia. Chapter 10 addresses the same aspects of nocturia as they relate specifically to elderly patients. Chapters 7, 8, 9, and 11 detail potential therapies for nocturia and the available data to support these treatment strategies. Several chapters include summary points, but the index provides a quick reference to help answer targeted questions.
Assessment: Urologists specializing in lower urinary tract dysfunction who frequently encounter patients with nocturia should read this book as a helpful foundation. Although slightly redundant, the book provides a thorough understanding of the clinical aspects of nocturia, potential etiologies, proper evaluation, and treatment strategies. If the book lacks anything, it is clear recommendations regarding treatment strategies and an in-depth discussion of potential pitfalls of specific therapies. The book succeeds in acknowledging the shortcomings related to the currently available literature on nocturia and provides suggestions for future research in the last chapter. Overall, this is a great resource for practitioners struggling with this challenging diagnosis on a regular basis.
