Bladder dysfunction in advanced parkinsons disease
Neurourology and Urodynamics, 04/11/2012
Winge K et al. – Lower urinary tract symptoms are highly prevalent in patients with advanced parkinson's disease (PD). More than 50% of patients have severe bladder symptoms, most frequently symptoms of overactive bladder. Patients treated with deep–brain stimulation in the STN had the same amount of LUTS symptoms as patients treated with either conventional oral medication therapy or an apomorphine pump, but exhibited significantly less nocturia.
