The minimally invasive use of botulinum toxins (BoNT) in the lower urinary tract has transformed the treatment of difficult bladder, urethra, and prostate conditions refractory to conventional therapy. This is the first book on the practical application of BoNT to the genitourinary tract. After discussion of the biology and pharmacology of BoNT, applications of BoNT in the bladder and the prostate and pelvic floor are discussed in detail, with reviews of the latest clinical series and techniques of BoNT injection. The book also considers non-genitourinary uses of BoNT and issues of health economics. The editor-in-chief, Dr. Michael Chancellor, was an early pioneer of BoNT use in North America and was the first to undertake comprehensive basic research into BoNT in the urinary tract. The contributing authors are leading authorities from across the world. This book will be of interest to all urologists and urogynecologists who are considering the use of BoNT in their practice.

From the reviews: "This book will be a very welcome addition to the urology library since it is the first book on the use of botulinum toxin (BoNT) in the genitourinary tract and is written and edited by two leading pioneers in the field, Michael Chancellor and Christopher Smith." (International Painful Bladder Foundation, January, 2012) "This first edition book on botulinum toxin (BoNT) is devoted to its medical applications in the genitourinary tract. ... All information is supported by extensive references. The text is complemented with numerous easy-to-read tables, and very well designed figures and graphics, some in colour and some black and white. This concisely written, practical, hands-on book is an excellent source of information for all involved in BoNT treatment, including students, residents, fellows, physicians and nurses." (Jane Meijlink and Jerzy Gajewski, ICS News, Vol. 8 (1), January, 2012)
