Not all neurogenic bladders
are the same: a proposal for a new neurogenic bladder
Baseline characteristics of neurogenic bladder
patients (NGB) with upper urinary tract damage (case group) or without it (control group).
SCI gives rise to a number of devastating medical complications among which neurogenic bladder
(NB) is an important one that results in various secondary urologic complications which continue to be a major cause of high morbidity in long-term SCI survivors in the form of a higher incidence of urinary tract infection (UTI), renal stones (8%), stones (36%), vesicoureteral reflux, hydronephrosis and renal deterioration5,6.
These findings suggest the main characteristics of neurogenic bladder
due to Behcet's disease are detrusor hyperreflexia in the storage phase and detrusor-sphincter dyssynergia in the voiding phase.
Elevated urinary UA in MMC patients may suggest its role in such a specific condition, which is connected with abnormal innervations in neurogenic bladder
was diagnosed in 23 of the 755 patients (3.
Many children with a neurogenic bladder
have urinary incontinence and potential progressive renal damage because of high bladder storage pressures, secondary vesico-ureteric reflux and recurrent urinary tract infections (UTIs).
Treatment of the neurogenic bladder
in spina bifida.
The etiology of hydroureteronephrosis was neurogenic bladder
secondary to meningomyelocele in five patients, a posterior urethral valve (PUV) in four patients, an obstructive megaureter in three patients and ectopic obstructive ureterocele in two patients.
refers to dysfunction of the urinary bladder due to the disease of the central nervous system or peripheral nerves involved in the control of micturition (urination).
Negative predictors of surgical outcome may include duration of symptoms, advanced age, neurogenic bladder
and pre-operative neurological function.
In end-stage neurogenic bladder
disease - an illness often associated with spinal cord diseases like spina bifida - the nerves which carry messages between the bladder and the brain do not work properly, causing an inability to pass urine.
