Introduction Neuropathic bladder (NB) is a lower urinary tract dysfunction (LUTD) that may lead to kidney failure. Urodynamic study is the gold standard for its diagnosis and follow-up. A classic prognostic parameter to predict the risk of upper urinary tract damage (UUTD) is the detrusor leak point pressure (DLPP) ≥ 40 cmH2O, although this factor...
