90 minutes
Neurourology: Clinical
Incontinence Diabetes mellitus Neurological diseases
Physicians, Nurses and Physiotherapists, who are not working in specialized neurourology centres but see patients with neurological disorders. We will cover conservative as well as surgical treatment modalities in respect to neurological changes

Patients with diabetes mellitus, multiple sclerosis and different forms of Parkinson's disease with NLUTD, LGITD, prolapse or BPE are often firstly seen by general gynaecologists, urologists, continence nurses and physiotherapists but not by specialized neurourologists. The goal of this course to give an overview on neurological pathophysiology with special focus on management strategies. For urinary incontinence that includes micturition timing, pelvic floor rehabilitation, bladder training, pharmacotherapy, instillation of Botulinium A toxin, neuromodulation and surgical interventions. For patients with neurogenic LGITD we will give an overview about chemical stimulants, retrograde or antegrade colonic enema and sacral neuromodulation.
