PressestimmenFrom the reviews:
"This volume certainly lives up to expectations. It is easily read in about 2 hours and is very logical in its approach ... . This book adds to existing knowledge and I have found it invaluable ... . I would recommend the book to all general practitioners, nurse practitioners, trainee obstetricians and gynaecologists and also practising consultants who are involved in the care of women with prolapses with or without associated incontinence. It should be in every obstetrics and gynaecology department!" (The Obstetrician and Gynaecologist, 2008)
