Want to Know About Pediatric Enuresis? Well, Urine Luck

Guest: Patricio Gargollo, M.D. (@pgargollo)

Host: Darryl S. Chutka, M.D. (@ChutkaMD)

Enuresis is relatively common in children, estimated to be present in as many as 5 to 10% of 7-year-olds. This represents up to 7 million children in the United States. As you can imagine, it carries significant social implications for the child. Our guest for this podcast is Dr. Patricio Gargollo, a pediatric urologist at Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota. Dr. Gargollo will address the natural history of enuresis, how to evaluate the child with enuresis, how often it represents a structural urologic problem and how often a treatable cause is found. Practical advice for parents of children with enuresis is also discussed.

Specific topics:

  • Potential for children with enuresis to have bladder control problems when they develop into adulthood.
  • Social impact of enuresis on a child.
  • Potential risk factors and causes of enuresis.
  • The role of genetics and enuresis.
  • The natural history of enuresis.
  • How often a structural urologic problem is found to explain enuresis.
  • Pharmacologic treatment options.
  • The evaluation of a child with enuresis.
