The non-neurogenic neurogenic bladder.
J Urol. 1977;117(2):232.
The records of 21 children with neuropathic bladder disease are reviewed. The natural history in these cases has been consistent with that of an acquired disorder and the results of urodynamic testing have supported Hinman's contention that the disease is basically a functional one, caused by a discoordination between detrusor contraction and sphincter relaxation. Bladder retraining and specific medication have yielded far better results than were obtained previously by surgical measures alone.
