Spinal cord injury leading to bladder problem

Dr Ardalan Abdolghafor GhafouriA good number of people in Qatar are increasingly suffering from dysfunctional urinary bladder (neurogenic bladder) due to spinal cord injury sustained in road traffic accidents and fall from heights, a senior Urology consultant at the Hamad Medical Corporation stated yesterday.
Yearly, the HMC Urology’s Voiding Dysfunction unit receives an average of up to 70 patients including males, females and children with neurogenic bladder.

Neurogenic bladder refers to dysfunction of the urinary bladder due to the disease of the central nervous system or peripheral nerves involved in the control of micturition (urination).
