Abstract

Underactive bladder (UAB) is a very common condition leading to disabling lower urinary tract symptoms. There has been an increasing interest in this condition as there is no effective treatment currently available. UAB has been described in many ways, but there is no agreed upon consensus on its terminology. The prevalence of UAB may be underestimated. This review focuses on the terminology, pathophysiology, common causes, its treatment, and future areas of research.
