Incontinence

Neurogenic bladder

11/29/2004

Question:

Are there any new treatments for a neurogenic bladder caused by nerve damage due to spina bifida? The treatment currently is ditropan xl and self catheterization.

Answer:

Other treatments including surgery are available and I suggest you consult with a urologist.  Board certified urologists are familiar with this problem and are aware of the various treatment options.  Not all are applicable to all patients, and an evaluation is therefore necessary.
