Brief Summary:
Patients with neurological disease/injury often suffer from lower urinary tract symptoms, which frequently have a negative impact on the patients' health related quality of life. The prevalence of lower urinary tract dysfunction is high and the treatment is a challenge because available treatments may fail. In this study data of patients with lower urinary tract dysfunction treated at the University of Zürich, are prospectively and systematically collected in a database.

Condition or disease
Neurogenic Bladder Diseases of the Lower Urinary Tract: General Conditions

Detailed Description:
Lower urinary tract dysfunction is characterized by detrusor overactivity, detrusor sphincter dyssynergia, voiding dysfunction, stress incontinence, or a combination of these and frequently has a negative impact on the patients' health related quality of life. In addition, the treatment of lower urinary tract dysfunction is a challenge because conventional therapies may fail. Adequate treatment and long-term follow-up of lower urinary tract dysfunction is important to achieve/maintain continence and preserve renal function. Thus, we aim to prospectively collect clinical, video-urodynamic and radiological data of patients with neurogenic lower urinary tract dysfunction treated at the University of Zürich in a database.
