Patients with lesions of the central nervous system often have neurogenic bladder dysfunction. Lifelong bladder monitoring and management in these patients is necessary to prevent severe complications, including renal damage. The urodynamic test, performed by neurourologists or other specially trained providers, is the definitive test for diagnosis and management of neurogenic bladder dysfunction. This article describes the indications and technique of urodynamic testing and the interpretation of the results of such testing. The management of patients with neurogenic bladder dysfunction is also discussed.
