Abstract

In HA, urinary symptoms are present in 80 % of patients, with mainly irritative symptoms in 2/3 of them. A complete urodynamic evaluation in symptomatic patients is recommended in order to characterize potential neurogenic vesico-urethral dysfunction. Even though sexual dysfunction may be related to neurological causes, additional etiologic organic factors should be excluded.
