There are many diseases or neurological conditions that cause bladder dysfunction. Patients with MS, Parkinson’s disease, spinal bifida, spinal cord injury, and patients that are recovering from a stroke may all develop a neurogenic bladder.
Because brain fails to connect with bladder, patients may lose the sensation that indicate the body when to void urine. The bladder muscle may not function properly and cause constant voiding, dribbling or retention.
Proper management and recovery plan with bladder scanner could help to shorten the time to rebuild urination function, direct catheterization and reduce the retention and incontinence risk and occurrence.
