Current evidence suggests multiple and redundant pathways through which the nervous system can initiate, amplify, and perpetuate inflammation. Many of the processes initiated by neurogenic inflammation have the capacity to recruit the participation of additional sensory nerves. These observations indicate that effective strategies for prevention or treatment of neurogenic inflammation of the bladder will entail or require intervention at multiple points. It has been observed that pain management in the future will be based on selective intervention tailored to the specific processes modulating pain perception in individual patients. It is exciting to contemplate the same approach to prevention and treatment of neurogenic bladder inflammation. Copyright © 2018 The Board of Regents of the University of Wisconsin System
