Abstract

Underactive bladder (UAB) is an expanding troublesome health issue, exerting a major influence on the health and independence of older people with a disproportionally low level of attention received. The 2nd International Congress on Underactive Bladder (CURE-UAB 2) convened in Denver, CO on December 3 and 4, 2015, and comprised of top clinicians, scientists, and other stakeholders to address the challenges in UAB. A series of workshops aimed to define UAB and its phenotype, define detrusor underactivity (DU) and create a subtyping of DU, evaluate existing animal models for DU, and lastly to establish research priorities for UAB.
