A variety of neurological conditions are associated with abnormal bladder and sphincter function, e.g. spinal cord injury (SCI), spina bifida (myelomeningocele), and multiple sclerosis (MS). The bladder and sphincters of such patients are described as ‘neuropathic’. This chapter describes the clinical consequences with the neuropathic lower urinary tract, bladder management techniques, and cystoplasty. It also provides management of incontinence, recurrent urinary tract infections, and hydronephrosis. Finally, it also covers catheters and condoms and artificial urinary sphincters.
