|Aims and Objectives|
The prevalence of lower urinary tract symptoms (LUTS) increases with age and the demography makes it an important socio-economic burden for society and individual. This workshop offers a comprehensive overview on the current knowledge on nocturnal LUTS in an aging population. Nocturnal LUTS are nocturia, nocturnal incontinence and bedwetting. Nocturnal LUTS occur due to a disruption of the circadian rhythms of brain, bladder and kidney resulting in changes in sleep, bladder function and urine production.
