Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Theresa M Spitznagle, PT, MHS, DPT, WCS (Washington University School of Medicine)
Description: This update of a 1994 book comprehensively covers the anatomy, clinical examination, classification, and treatment approaches to pelvic floor function and dysfunction. Key points at the start of each chapter highlight learning objectives.
Purpose: The authors provide an overview of the current state of clinical practice in urogynecology, emphasizing key concepts of anatomy, exercise physiology, clinical measurement, and treatment options for individuals with pelvic floor dysfunction.
Audience: This resource will benefit those in many disciplines who provide care for individuals with pelvic floor dysfunction. It would make an excellent educational tool for residency and fellowship training programs that specialize in pelvic floor dysfunction, including physical therapy, physiatry, urology, nurse practitioner, and colorectal surgery.
Features: The book provides the critical information needed to understand the interaction between pelvic floor muscle performance, fascial support, and function of the pelvic organs. Topics span from voiding dysfunction to a brief discussion of sexual dysfunction. Aspects of pelvic floor examination, evaluation, and treatment are included. Well done are the very thorough reviews of pelvic anatomy, the state-of-the-art in understanding the continence mechanism, and muscle physiology and its relationship to appropriate prescription of pelvic floor muscle training. However, there is limited information about pain syndromes of the pelvic floor.
Assessment: I would recommend this book to anyone who desires to develop a discipline-specific clinical specialty in pelvic floor dysfunction. Many of the authors are iconic professionals in urogynecology, and no other book on pelvic floor dysfunction boasts this level of intellectual representation. This is an excellent resource for the many disciplines in this field.
From the Publisher
From the reviews of the second edition:

'...the book is a good refresher for those currently working in the field of female continence and pelvic floor rehabilitation...the book gives a concise overview of anatomy, diagnosis and treatments with an emphasis on pelvic floor muscle retraining and alternatives if conservative treatment does not produce the desired outcomes...'

Eileen Lavis, Physiotherapist Private Practice Lake Macquarie, 2008 National Continence Scholarship Winner

"This is the second edition … edited by a respected group of specialists in gynaecology, urogynaecology and gerontology. … the book is appropriate for a wide range of clinicians including doctors, physiotherapists, nurses and practitioners who care for women with pelvic floor dysfunction. … The book provides current, evidence-based research for each section, with extensive references for those wishing to read further. … the book is a good refresher for those currently working in the field of female continence and pelvic floor rehabilitation." (Eileen Lavis, Australian and New Zealand Continence Journal, Vol. 15 (3), 2009)
