LUTS are highly prevalent in both genders above 40 years of age. In the western population more than 70% of males and females report at least one lower urinary tract symptom and half is considerably bothered by them.
LUTS are even more common among patients with neurogenic bladder dysfunctions, in whom bladder control assumes one of the most important objectives necessary to improve quality of life. The last decade witnessed the introduction of new forms of treatment for LUTS, either in neurogenic and non-neurogenic patients, the outcomes of which need now critical revaluation.
