Addressing pelvic floor disorders in patients with neurogenic bladder

Deborah S. Hess, Gary E. Lemack

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


Lower urinary tract symptoms (including urinary incontinence) and pelvic floor disorders are commonly reported by women with neurological conditions. Their evaluation and treatment may differ considerably from neurologically intact women. In this chapter, we particularly focus on the evaluation and treatment of women with multiple sclerosis (MS), Parkinson's disease, and spinal cord injury. Patients with these conditions may have more complex lower urinary tract disorders that may require a more intensive diagnostic evaluation and specific interventions tailored to those findings.
