|Official Title:||Incidence of Urinary Tract Infection and Germ Identification After Urodynamic Investigation in Patients With Spinal Cord Injury|
- Incidence of urinary tract infection following urodynamic investigation [ Time Frame: 3 days after urodynamic investigation ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]every patient receives the urine examination before the urodynamic investigation and hospitalized patients additionally 3 days later and ambulatory patients in case of urinary tract infection
- Name and number of identified bacterial species [ Time Frame: 30 minutes before examination ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
- Number of hospitalized and number of ambulatory patients with infection of the lower urinary tract [ Time Frame: 3 days after examination ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
- Incidence of urinary tract infection before urodynamic investigation [ Time Frame: 30 minutes before urodynamic investigation ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]every patient receives the urine examination before the urodynamic investigation to detect a potentially urinary tract infection

Experimental: Spinal cord injured
Patients with neurogenic lower urinary tract infection (Spinal Cord Injury,MS,M. Parkinson)
Procedure: urodynamic examination
Standard urodynamic investigation according to the ICS standard, Good urodynamic practice.Following insertion of 8 F transurethral catheter, retrograde filling of the bladder (20 mL/min) with body warm saline.
Current recording of pabd. , pves and pdet., subsequently pressure flow study. Additionally imaging with fluoroscopy to detect possible vesico ureteral renal reflux.
Patients with neurogenic bladder dysfunction after spinal cord injury need lifelong urologic control examinations with CMG (urodynamic examination). The manipulation may cause urinary tract infections which have to be treated. Patients often noticed an infection after a CMG examination. Aim of this study is the determination of the infection rate and germs. Also should be noticed the pre-interventional infections and differences between the causing germs. Simultaneously the investigators test the reliability of the quicktest for urinary infection. Additionally the investigators will examine the Quality of Life in patients with neurogenic bladder dysfunction.
