The article presents the results of diagnosis and treatment of women with combined neurogenic pathology of the lower urinary tract and distal colon.
The objective: increase the effectiveness of treatment for women with combined neurogenic pathology of the lower urinary tract and distal colon.
Materials and methods. The study group included 30 women with combined neurogenic pathology of the lower parts of the urinary system and lower colon, whose mean age was 41.8±2.1 years, the average duration of the disease was 18.4±1.6 months. All patients underwent complex examination using both conventional and special diagnostic methods.
Results. After completing six courses of treatment, the patients in this group recorded a significant improvement in both the clinical results and EMG results.
Conclusion. The obtained results were the basis for the substantiation of the principles of differential treatment of patients with a combined neurogenic pathology of the lower urinary tract and distal colon, which allowed improving the effectiveness of treatment.
Key words: neurogenic bladder disorders, neurogenic bowel dysfunction, electromyography, electrostimulation.
