Darryl S. Chutka, M.D.

Patricio C. Gargollo, M.D.

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.
