Introduction and Patient Selection for Surgery

What is required to restore or produce continence and adequate voiding with respect to the patient’s adequately evaluated and objectively demonstrated urodynamic abnormalities?
Is the surgical intervention required justifiable with regard to the patient’s general condition, circumstances and motivation?
Given that, in general, a patient with neuropathic dysfunction has more than one urodynamic abnormality and will usually therefore need more than one kind of treatment, the process of selection of patients for surgery involves an initial selection of patients in whom such surgery is warranted, then a decision as to which abnormalities require surgical intervention and, finally, a decision as to which procedure or procedures will be needed to correct those abnormalities.
