INUS, the International Neuro-Urology Society, is a non-profit scientific society founded in 2015 by experts in neuro-urology from all around the world with now 295 members from 42 countries. Our aims are to raise awareness for neuro-urology and to increase its future presence in order to provide the best possible care for neuro-urological patients worldwide by education (course, seminars, lectures, videos), by research and by founding regional chapters in all major countries/regions. INUS is the only society, which focuses exclusively on neuro-urology. We welcome as members everyone – doctors, nurses, physiotherapist and others – who are involved in neuro-urological care and research. Visit us on our homepage www.neuro-uro.org.

Topic of the INUS session: Cerebral Diseases and Sexual Function/Dysfunction

Jalesh Panicker will be discussing sexual difficulties in the context of different cerebral disorders such as Parkinson’s Disease and Multiple Sclerosis. The talk will provide an overview of assessment and management.

Bertil Blok intends to provide an update for brain circuits involved in sexual functioning for Urologists, Gynaecologist, Uro-gynaecologists, and all allied professions with an interest in autonomic dysfunction will be welcome. The topics covered will be on how the brain controls sexual behaviour. Recent imaging studies of regional brain activity in response to sexual stimulation, arousal and orgasm will be presented in the context of dysfunction.

The views expressed in these Society Sessions are those of the speakers and not necessarily those of the International Continence Society.
