Urologists and nurses managing patients with neurogenic bladder.

Using a combination of panel discussions and audience interaction, this course will discuss the management of the complex neurogenic bladder patient. Topics will include recurrent infection, intractable detrusor overactivity, sphincter weakness, devastated urethra, catheterisation difficulties and urolithiasis. Patient with spinal cord injury, spina bifida and MS will be emphasised. Complications related to surgical management including augmentation cystoplasty, Mitrofanoff procedures, and suprapubic catheter will be discussed. The participants will have the opportunity to formulate management algorythms based on the experience of the faculty. They will understand how to avoid complications and how to treat them effectively.
