Identifying Patients with High-Risk Neurogenic Bladder: Beyond Detrusor Leak Point Pressure.

Abstract More than 12,000 spinal cord injuries occur annually in the United States; more than 80% of these individuals will experience urinary tract dysfunction. Despite the clinical demand, there is a paucity of guidelines for the care of these patients. Although most urologists are familiar with dangerous urodynamic parameters and the benefits of clean intermittent catheterization, these patients face a myriad of risks that may go unrecognized. In this article, the authors discuss the impact of specific neurologic diseases on the urinary tract, examine the risks inherent to each, and determine strategies for screening, prevention, and treatment of these complications.
