This comprehensive and very practical course on adult neurogenic bladder dysfunction is designed for urology residents and practicing urologists with special interest in neurourology. Topics covered will include the urodynamic evaluation of patients with various neurogenic bladder conditions and an up-to-date review of nonpharmacological, pharmacological, minimally invasive and reconstructive surgical treatment options. The presentations will be corroborated and supplemented by actual clinical cases, providing a unique case based approach to the evaluation and management. Such a practical approach is aimed at keeping the attendee engaged and actively involved in the course. Exceptionally clear and instructional urodynamic illustrations of common neurogenic bladder conditions (eg CVA, Parkinson's disease, multiple sclerosis, brain tumors, spinal cord injury, spinal cord tumors, herniated intervertebral disk) will be included along with contemporary advances in the management as practiced in 2013-2014. A separate section on the effect of deep brain stimulation on neurovesical dysfunction will also be included. At the end of the course, the attendees will become confident and proficient in the urodynamic diagnosis and contemporary management of common neurogenic bladder conditions.
Objectives: After attending this course, participants should be able to:
- Confidently perform urodynamic evaluation of neurogenic bladder conditions
- Be proficient in the comprehensive and contemporary management of neurogenic bladder conditions
- Obtain instruction on the currently accepted and evidence-based follow-up management of adult patients with neurogenic bladder conditions
