Abstract

The observational study aimed to analyze the neurogenic bladder dysfunction in patients during the recovery from the chronic disorder of consciousness. We compared etiology, level of consciousness, age with the neurogenic bladder dysfunction in these cases. The study result suggested that the increase in the consciousness level partially restores the bladder function, which significantly reduces the risk of infections and somatic disorders, thereby affecting the duration and quality of life. Recovery of the bladder function also depends on the etiology of the disorder of consciousness: patients in the anoxic group had the least chance of bladder function recovery making global brain ischemia an unfavorable factor. Correlations between urination dysfunctions with age and level of consciousness at admission have not been found.
