Lower Urinary Tract Dysfunction Database
Patients with neurological disease/injury often suffer from lower urinary tract symptoms, which frequently have a negative impact on the patients' health related quality of life. The prevalence of lower urinary tract dysfunction is high and the treatment is a challenge because available treatments may fail. In this study data of patients with lower urinary tract dysfunction treated at the University of Zürich, are prospectively and systematically collected in a database.
Diseases of the Lower Urinary Tract: General Conditions
|Study Design:||Observational Model: Case-Only
Time Perspective: Prospective
|Official Title:||Database of Patients With Lower Urinary Tract Dysfunction Treated at the University of Zürich|
|Study Start Date:||January 2010|
|Estimated Study Completion Date:||January 2016|
|Estimated Primary Completion Date:||January 2016 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)|
Lower urinary tract dysfunction is characterized by detrusor overactivity, detrusor sphincter dyssynergia, voiding dysfunction, stress incontinence, or a combination of these and frequently has a negative impact on the patients' health related quality of life. In addition, the treatment of lower urinary tract dysfunction is a challenge because conventional therapies may fail. Adequate treatment and long-term follow-up of lower urinary tract dysfunction is important to achieve/maintain continence and preserve renal function. Thus, we aim to prospectively collect clinical, video-urodynamic and radiological data of patients with neurogenic lower urinary tract dysfunction treated at the University of Zürich in a database.
