This groundbreaking work brings together an international team of
world-renowned experts in the treatment of urinary and fecal incontinence, as
well as sexual dysfunction, to provide a comprehensive guide to the structure

problems. Detailed discussions of the specific issues associated with children,

With its
thorough coverage, this highly practical text is essential reading for all
