|Aims and Objectives|
This workshop offers a comprehensive overview on the current knowledge on nocturnal Lower Urinary Tract Symptoms (LUTS). Nocturnal LUTS are nocturia, nocturnal incontinence and bedwetting. The aim is not merely to discuss these symptoms, their diagnosis and therapy, but to conceptualise their mutual causes, diagnosis and therapy, and simplify the clinical thinking when we encounter these patients. We will start with discussing nocturnal LUTS and make critical review on terminology, and continue with discussing causes (reduced bladder capacity and nocturnal polyuria), diagnosis (bladder diaries and renal function profiles) and their therapies.
