This session will cover the evaluation and treatment of urinary retention, especially in the female, with emphasis on neurogenic bladder. Urinary retention is a poorly understood condition. Though the causation is generally attributed to either bladder or bladder outlet dysfunction, and an accurate diagnosis is often straightforward, it remains an under diagnosed condition. Treatment is dependent on the underlying causation. Often felt by the medical community to be extraordinarily complex, this session will outline a straight forward approach to the diagnosis and treatment options for the condition.
Learners will develop a clear and concise approach to the diagnosis and treatment of urinary retention in the neurogenic patient.
