What is the treatment for neurogenic bladder?

Individualized. There are different types of neurogenic bladder. Common causes might be multiple sclerosis, spinal cord injury or stroke. In general, the bladder's function is to store and void urine, both of which can be disrupted. Goals of treatment should be to allow low pressure storage of urine and adequate emptying at a convenient time. Self catherization and medication are often used to accomplish this.
See answer below. The treatments are different depending on whether one has an areflexic or an overactive bladder. Bethanechol is a first line treatment for an areflexic bladder. Anticholinergic therapies such as oxybutinin, tolterodine, trospium, solifenacin, are used in the management of an overactive bladder. Botox can also be used as a second line agent for the management of neurogenic detrusor overactivity.

Many reasons. Neurogenic bladder is a non-specific diagnosis. You can have a neurogenic bladder that is overactive (urinary frequency, urgency) or a neurogenic bladder that has lost its ability to squeeze or empty.

What are? Treatments for? Neurogenic bladder?

Possibly. If the onset is very recent and is due to nerve compression that can be reversed it may be curable with surgery. An example is an acute lumbar disc herniation that causes neurogenic bladder. If the condition is chronic it is less likely to respond to treatment though it still may. In chronic cases treatment usually focuses on managing the problem and may include self catheterization. Read more...

I have a neurogenic bladder is there a cure?

Essentially no. Bruising of spinal cord can cause temporary neurogenic bladder which resolves spontaneously. Occasional cure has been reported by nerve transfer and anastomosis and is a possible hope for the future. Urinary incontinence can be managed in most cases by intermittent catheterization, with or without medication, artificial urinary sphincters, bladder augmentation or urinary diversions etc. Read more...

Is there a cure for a neurogenic bladder?

Not likely. Actually it depends on the cause of neurogenic bladder. Neurogenic bladder means a bladder that does not work correctly due to a fault in the nerve supply. Usually the cause is not treatable e.g. Paralysis due to stroke. If the cause happens to be treatable then the bladder will get better. Read more...
It is treatable. The first line agents to manage neurogenic bladder, or more specifically, detrusor overactivity, are anticholinergic medications such as oxybutinin or tolterodine. Ultimately, if no benefit is gained from these medications, a trial of onabotulinumtoxina (botox) injections in the bladder wall may be tried and has been found to control the symptoms of incontinence for up to a year.

Is neurostimulation effective treatment for neurogenic bladder, my doctor says success rate is very high. How does this treatment works?

We're not sure... Sacral neuromodulation is a procedure that involves placing wires near the nerves that control the bladder and pelvic floor muscles as they exit the spinal column. Electric signals sent via a generator travel down the wires to stimulate the nerves. For reasons still not entirely clear, bladder function improves. This is an fda-approved treatment for urinary urgency, frequency, and retention. Read more...
