Answer

Answer

Management of voiding dysfunction in neurologic disorders can substantially improve not only patients’ health but also their quality of life. A systematic review of the pattern of voiding dysfunction leads to an understanding of the underlying mechanism, which, in turn, allows the treating physician to develop a strategy for managing it. [1] Neurourology, although a relatively new field of study, has revolutionized the management of a vexing problem that affects millions of patients.
