With regard to this controversial finding, the literature states that, although unilateral labyrinthine lesions reduce the ipsilateral tonic influence of the vestibulospinal tract in the affected ear [14], clinicians must also consider lack of homogeneity because there is no standardized criterion for identifying hyporeflexia or in which stage of the vestibular compensation process the patient is [11].

[12] suggested three major mechanisms responsible for post-stroke urinary incontinence: (i) disruption of the neuromicturition pathways, resulting in bladder hyperreflexia and urgency incontinence; (ii) incontinence due to stroke-related cognitive and language deficits with normal bladder function; and (iii) concurrent neuropathy or medication use, resulting in bladder hyporeflexia and overflow incontinence.
