STROKE-BLADDER DYSFUNCTION

1. Incidence of urinary incontinence is 50% - 70% during the first month after stroke and 15% after 6 months.

2. Incontinence may be caused by CNS damage itself (neurogenic bladder), UTI, impaired ability to transfer to toilet, or impaired mobility, confusion, communication disorder/aphasia, and cognitive-perceptual deficits that result in lack of awareness of bladder fullness.

3. Types of voiding disorders: Areflexia, uninhibited spastic bladder (with complete/incomplete emptying), outlet obstruction.
