INTRODUCTION AND HYPOTHESIS: Pregnancy in women with spinal-cord injury (SCI) poses a clinical challenge. We hypothesized that changes in the management of neurogenic bladder during pregnancy are commonly required and should receive more attention. METHODS: Data were collected by retrospective analysis of medical records and via cross-sectional survey of 52 women with SCI, representing 67 pregnancies, at ten Italian neurourological clinics. All participants provided informed consent...

BACKGROUND: Using the CE mark of therapeutic appliances is, on its own, not sufficient enough for their appropriate and effective application. In order to treat the patient successfully, not jeopardizing the success of the treatment, medical quality criteria for therapeutic appliances care are necessary to acceptably compensate for a patient's disabilities. OBJECTIVES: Medical quality criteria are formulated for the most frequently used urological aids and devices, considering hygienic requirements, international literature and the practical experience of physicians and nurses with regard to the care of patients with neurogenic urinary bladder dysfunction...

AIMS: To assess the outcomes of switching to a different brand of botulinum toxin A (BTA, from Botox® to Dysport®) in case of failure of intradetrusor injections (IDI) of Botox® in the treatment of neurogenic detrusor overactivity (NDO). METHODS: The charts of all patients who underwent a switch to IDI of Dysport® after failure of an IDI of Botox® at six departments of neurourology were retrospectively reviewed. The main outcomes of interest were the bladder diary data and four urodynamic parameters: maximum cystometric capacity (MCC), maximum detrusor pressure (PDET max), and volume at first uninhibited detrusor contraction (UDC)...

OBJECTIVE: Intradetrusor injection of onabotulinum toxin A (IDIBA) is the third-line therapy for patients with neurogenic detrusor overactivity (NDO). There is few evidence of long-term efficacy but no study assessed reasons for failure or abandonment of IDIBA and CISC (clean intermittent self-catheterization) combined strategy. We aimed to assess its long-term outcome in NDO management, and analyze failure and discontinuation. MATERIALS/PATIENTS AND METHODS: We retrospectively reviewed medical records of patients admitted in our neurourology department between 2001 and 2013...

AIMS: This study determined if combined treatment with the muscarinic receptor (MR) antagonist solifenacin and the β3 -adrenergic receptor (AR) agonist mirabegron could inhibit detrusor overactivity induced by cold stress in spontaneously hypertensive rats (SHRs). METHODS: Thirty-two female 10-week-old SHRs were fed an 8% NaCl-supplemented diet for 4 weeks. Cystometric measurements of the unanesthetized, unrestricted rats were performed at room temperature (RT, 27 ± 2°C) for 20 min...

BACKGROUND: Neurogenic bladder dysfunction represents one of the most common and devastating sequelae of traumatic spinal cord injury (SCI). As early prediction of bladder outcomes is essential to counsel patients and to plan neurourological management, we aimed to develop and validate a model to predict urinary continence and complete bladder emptying 1 y after traumatic SCI. METHODS AND FINDINGS: Using multivariate logistic regression analysis from the data of 1,250 patients with traumatic SCI included in the European Multicenter Spinal Cord Injury study, we developed two prediction models of urinary continence and complete bladder emptying 1 y after traumatic SCI and performed an external validation in 111 patients...

BACKGROUND: Sacral agenesis (SA) is a rare congenital condition that refers to the absence of part or all of two or more lower sacral vertebral bodies. It can be associated with neurogenic bladder dysfunction that does not necessarily correlate with the level of spinal or skeletal defect. Patients with SA should undergo urodynamic studies (UDS) to guide lower urinary tract (LUT) management. OBJECTIVE: This review aimed to update the present institutional experience since 1981 of this rare patient population with detailed, long-term follow-up of bladder and kidney function...

AIMS: Urethral pathophysiology is often neglected in discussions of bladder dysfunction. It has been debated whether "urethral sphincter instability," referred to based on observed "urethral pressure variations," is an important aspect of overactive bladder syndrome (OAB). The purpose of this report is to summarize current urethral pathophysiology evidence and outline directions for future research based on a literature review and discussions during the ICI-RS meeting in Bristol in 2014...
