An association with gait disorders is common, which could aggravate continence difficulties and affect quality of life. The association between the need to void and walking has never been studied in this population.Objective: The primary aim of this study was to assess the effect of a strong desire to void (SDV) on walking speed in IwMS and lower urinary tract symptoms. The secondary aim was to identify clinical or urodynamic factors associated with walking speed impairment at SDV in this population.Methods: We included IwMS with urinary disorders and Expanded Disability Status Scale score
CONCLUSIONS: Generally, combat-related penetrating brain injuries had satisfactory treatment outcomes. Treatment outcomes in this study were comparable to those previously reported by other authors in military populations and significantly better than outcomes of peacetime penetrating brain injury treatment.

This article contextualizes a nearly forgotten, century-old research corpus, The Fundamentals of Defectology. Drawing on Defectology, two dialectic arguments are developed, which synthesize Vygotsky's corpus, then juxtaposed it against contemporary theories and evidence. The first describes three principles of Vygotsky's framework for deaf pedagogy: positive differentiation, creative adaptation, and dynamic development. The second posits five propositions about deaf development: the biosocial proposition, the sensory delimitation-and-consciousness proposition, the adapted tools proposition, the multimodal proposition, and ...
CONCLUSION: Lower urinary tract symptoms, especially overactive bladder and urinary retention, are frequent in NMO. Low bladder compliance, serious urinary infections, and high prevalence of urinary retention requiring self-intermittent catheterization are the main symptoms significantly more frequent than in MS.
