Neurogenic cyst

With the term neurogenic bladder we describe any type of bladder dysfunction that occurs in people with problems from the nervous system.

The most common causes are Multiple Sclerosis, Spinal Cord Injuries, and Vascular Strokes as well as birth defects such as Spina Difficulty.

The neurogenic bladder can appear in various forms, the most common of which are either detrusor hyperreflexia (i.e. uncontrolled contractions of the bladder leading to urinary incontinence), or sphincter-detrusor dysfunction (i.e. non-relaxation of the sphincter of the urethra during urination as is normal).

The diagnosis of the type of neurogenic cyst and the extent of the neurogenic damage is done with the full neurophysiological test and the Urodynamic test.

The treatment of the neurogenic cyst is done either with drugs, with intermittent catheterizations, or finally with surgical operations.
