Neurogenic Voiding Dysfunction


Symptomatology of neurogenic voiding dysfunction l.jpg

Symptomatology of Neurogenic Voiding dysfunction

Normal micturition l.jpg

Normal Micturition

  • Cortical arousal and initiation of voiding

  • Normal detrusor contractility

  • Normal cortical inhibition before voiding

  • Patent bladder outlet and urethra

  • Coordinated external sphincter during detrusor contraction

  • Volitional contraction of sphincter and interruption of voiding

Normal Micturition

Physiology of micturition l.jpg

Physiology of Micturition

  • Micturition reflex center – sacral cords S2-4

  • Micturition center – pons

  • Sensory and motor cortex – frontal lobe

  • Coordination of detrusor and striated sphincter – cerebellum,basal ganglia

  • Affection influence – limbic system

Stroke l.jpg


  • Initial retention, bladder neck is closed

  • Detrusor hyperreflexia & incontinence

  • Continence reappears by 6 Mo in 80%

  • Irritative LUTS: DH

  • Dysuria and obstructive LUTS: DHIC,BPO, poor relaxation of external sphincter (frontoparietal & internal capsule lesion)

  • Subcortical lesion: areflexia, retention (47%)

  • Areflexia in 85% hemorrhage, 10% ischemia

Stroke and bladder outlet obstruction l.jpg

Stroke and Bladder outlet obstruction

  • Detrusor hyperreflexia in 82% after stroke, obstruction was noted in 63%

  • Pseudodyssynergia may be a urodynamic finding for obstructive symptoms

  • Incidence of BOO is equally distributed in patients with irritative and obstructive LUTS

  • Prostatectomy should not be done in 1 year after stroke

Intracranial diseases and nvd l.jpg

Intracranial Diseases and NVD

  • Cerebral vascular accidents – DH

  • Parkinson’s disease – DH, ext. sphincter pseudodyssynergia

  • Cerebellar ataxia – DH, DESD

  • Cerebral palsy – normal voiding, DH

  • Dementia – DH, DHIC, DA

  • Recurrent stroke – DH,DHIC, DA

Urodynamic findings in icd l.jpg

Urodynamic findings in ICD

  • Detrusor hyperreflexia – lack of inhibitory effect

  • Detrusor areflexia –initial post-stroke period, failure of initiation ability in chronic case

  • Decreased ability in initiation at small voided volume -- hesitancy

  • Decreased ability of voluntary sphincter contractions -- incontinence

  • Sphincter coordination is normal – no DESD

  • Normal detrusor pressure, low/normal flow

Multiple sclerosis l.jpg

Multiple Sclerosis

  • Detrusor hyperreflexia occurs in 60-70%, DESD in 20-40%, hypocontractility in 15-40%

  • Lower urinary tract dysfuncton affect 80% of MS patients, rising to 96% after 10 years of MS

  • Symptoms wax and wan

  • Incontinence & dysuria the main LUTS

Desd in multiple sclerosis l.jpg

Diabetes mellitus l.jpg

Diabetes mellitus

  • Detrusor hypocontractility in 35%

  • Detrusor hyperreflexia in 55-60%

  • Detrusor areflexia in chronic DM

  • Increased incidence of bladder outlet obstruction in chronic cases

  • When TURP is attempted, prostatic obstruction should be confirmed by videourodynamic study

Parkinson s disease l.jpg

Parkinson’s Disease

  • Detrusor hyperreflexia and frequency urgency

  • External sphincter pseudodyssynergia results in poor relaxation and difficult initiation of voiding

  • DHIC in severe case

  • Symptoms wax and wan with treatment

Other conditions l.jpg

Other conditions

  • Transverse myelitis – sudden onset of dysuria and retention, reversible, DH, DESD,DA can be found in urodynamics

  • In 39 HIV positive patients 87% had urodynamic abnormality: 62% due to toxoplasmosis encephalitis and DH, half of them could recover after treatment

Management of nvd following stroke and icd l.jpg

Management of NVD following stroke and ICD

  • Indwelling Foley catheter in initial stage

  • Clean intermittent catheterization

  • Urodynamic test after recovery of motor function

  • Avoid bladder overdistention to 500ml

  • Trocar cystostomy in male patients

  • Alpha-blocker and urecholine therapy

Clean intermittent self catheterization cic cisc l.jpg

Clean intermittent (self) catheterization (CIC, CISC)

  • Easy to perform when properly instructed

  • Adequate lubrication is necessary

  • Will not exacerbate UTI occurrence

  • Bladder capacity and intravesical pressure should be determined before institution of CIC
