Management of Lower Urinary Tract Dysfunction in Parkinson's Disease: A Review of Recent Treatment Options

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

In addition to the cardinal symptoms of tremors and rigidity, Parkinson's disease is also defined by lower urinary tract dysfunction. In particular, these symptoms of nocturia and detrusor overactivity greatly impact the quality of life of a Parkinson's patient. Improved understanding of the differential diagnosis of Parkinson's disease and other neurodegenerative diseases, combined with improvements in treatment for detrusor overactivity, has improved the therapeutic options for Parkinson's disease-associated lower urinary tract dysfunction. In this review, we discuss the various therapeutic options now available.
