Abstract

Detrusor hyperreflexia is a relevant clinical symptom for patients suffering from Parkinson's disease. In a series of 16 patients, we demonstrated that subthalamic deep brain stimulation has a significant and urodynamically recordable effect leading to a normalization of pathologically increased bladder sensibility.
