Answer

Answer

Detrusor hyperreflexia with coordinated urethral sphincter is the most common observed urodynamic pattern associated with a brain tumor. These patients complain of urinary frequency and urgency and urge incontinence. First-line treatment for detrusor hyperreflexia includes anticholinergic medication.
