Urinary problems among patients with stroke. Are these problems underestimated?

Urinary problems among patients with stroke. Are these problems underestimated?

Tidsskrift for den Norske Laegeforening 111(21): 2659-2662

The article, based on a survey and a study of the literature, focuses on the problems of urinary disorders in patients who have suffered a stroke. The incidence of incontinence and other urination disorders was studied upon admission and six weeks later in ten stroke patients admitted consecutively to a hospital for rehabilitation. The results of the present study agreed with those of other studies, indicating that urination disorders, especially motoric urge incontinence, are common among stroke patients. The literature indicates that urinary incontinence has a negative influence on the rehabilitation process. Therefore the rehabilitation team should be particularly aware of such problems, and carry out both diagnostic and therapeutic procedures.
