Mouth and eye dryness are frequently reported by patients with multiple sclerosis (MS) as side effects of antimuscarinic drugs used for neurogenic overactive bladder. We evaluated the impact of antimuscarinic drugs prescription on these symptoms.
To assess the correlation between the anorectal function and bladder detrusor function in patients with complete spinal cord injury (SCI) according to the type of lesion.
Medical records of twenty-eight patients with SCI were included in this study.
The aim of this review is to update the indications, contraindications, technique, complications, and the tissue engineering approaches of augmentation cystoplasty (AC) in patients with neurogenic bladder.
Aim: Percutaneous tibial nerve stimulation is used to decrease incontinence in chronic neurogenic bladder. We report the findings from a subset of patients in a randomized control trial of transcutaneous tibial nerve stimulation (TTNS) for bladder neuromodulation in acute spinal cord injury (SCI) in whom heart rate variability (HRV) was recorded before and after cystometrogram (CMG).
Neurogenic bladders (NGB) with detrusor leak point pressures >40 cm H2O (dLPP > 40) have been associated with deterioration of renal function in children with myelomeningocele.
Prenatal repair of myelomeningocele (MMC) via hysterotomy has demonstrated neurosurgical and motor benefits, when compared to postnatal repairs. Urologic benefits, however, remain to be seen. The purpose of this study was to review early postnatal bladder function in patients undergoing a novel endoscopic approach for MMC repair using an exteriorized uterus.
In recent years, the importance of patient satisfaction and quality of life-referred to as patient-related outcomes- has been emphasized, in addition to the evaluation of symptoms and severity through questionnaires.
The standard recommended treatment for neurogenic detrusor overactivity (NDO) is clean intermittent catheterization combined with an antimuscarinic agent. However, the adverse systemic side-effects of oxybutynin, the most widely used agent, are of concern.
Vesicoureteral reflux (VUR) is a significant risk factor for pyelonephritis and renal scarring. VUR can occur through a defective ureterovesical junction (UVJ) or an overwhelmed normal UVJ mechanism such as in bladder dysfunction of congenital, acquired, or behavioral etiology.
Recurrent urinary tract infections (UTIs) are common in patients with neurogenic bladder (NGB) performing clean intermittent catheterization (CIC) treated with or without oral antibiotic prophylaxis.
We investigated whether transcutaneous tibial nerve stimulation (TTNS) in acute spinal cord injury was safe and feasible, and could achieve neuromodulation and improve cystometrogram parameters during acute inpatient rehabilitation.
Sexuality has received little attention in spina bifida (SB) care. The aim of this study was to assess sexual identity and orientation in adults with SB.
An international online survey to adults with SB was administered over 10-months (recruitment: SB clinics, SB organizations via social media).
This study analyzed retrospectively the bladder function of patients after early surgery for cauda equina syndrome (CES) performed within 24 or 48 hours, or after 48 hours of the onset of autonomic symptoms.
