This consensus statement on neurogenic detrusor overactivity (NDO) discusses the effect of NDO on the quality of life and overall health of patients with multiple sclerosis (MS) and spinal cord injury (SCI), identifies health care provider and patient barriers to care, describes best practices to screen for urinary dysfunction, and summarizes the panel’s recommendations for management of NDO in this patient population. Management strategies include antimuscarinic agents such as oxybutynin, onabotulinumtoxinA intradetrusor injection, sacral nerve stimulation, bladder augmentation or urinary diversion, and clean intermittent catheterization. Long-term follow-up of patients with NDO is important because changes in detrusor compliance and urodynamic patterns may occur over time.
This activity is designed for urologists, neurologists, physiatrists, and other health care professionals interested in or involved with the management of patients with multiple sclerosis or spinal cord injury who are at risk for neurogenic detrusor overactivity.
