A comprehensive review of enuresis, such as this, has long been overdue. In this book attention is given to bladder control, reflecting current interest in developmental aspects of paediatrics, and to enuresis, reflecting the need to relieve a common cause of unhappiness. The topics discussed include how most children become dry by age four or five, and why a minority do not; why these children go on wetting their beds, and why some start doing so after a period of dryness. The prevalence of bedwetting in younger children varies curiously in different countries. Treatment, by explanation, by drugs and by the buzzer, is well covered in practical detail. Previously published articles are reviewed. In too many it has been difficult to determine whether authors are consistently writing about day-time or night-time, life-long or acquired, wetting. Emphasis is given to papers in which soundly based research is clearly reported. Though this book was inspired by and derives from a recent International Colloquium at Newcastle, it is anything but a report of that Colloquium. To extend coverage and avoid repetition, a number of chapters have been specially written, and papers have been re-written, fused or omitted; several up-to-date, comprehensive and authoritative reviews have been included. Whether readers are community, hospital or family doctors, or psychologists, they can enjoy criticising and evaluating the at times differing views put forward, and can synthesise their own new and better conclusions. The editors have aimed to clear the way for further research by identifying clearly what is known and posing questions. Equally, however, it is hoped that this volume will promote a deeper and better understanding of bladder control and enuresis, and enable doctors who use it for reference to give more effective help to children with wetting problems.Kolvin, I. is the author of 'Bladder Control and Enuresis' with ISBN 9780901260420 and ISBN 0901260428.
