Neurourology

Overview

Neurourology is the study of how the nervous system affects the urinary system. The brain, spinal cord and nerves are very important to the healthy function of the bladder. Neurological diseases and disorders such as multiple sclerosis, Parkinson's disease, stroke and spinal cord injury can disrupt the lower urinary tract and result in conditions such as urinary incontinence and the inability to urinate. Birth conditions such as spina bifida also cause neurological dysfunction of bladder control. Neurogenic bladder is a term applied to a malfunctioning urinary bladder due to neurologic dysfunction or injury.
