Common Urological Problems

Urethral Pressure Measurement

Urethral pressure profilometry

Historically, the first urodynamic parameter measured to characterize stress incontinence was the resting urethral pressure profile (UPP), which was based on the idea that continence is maintained as long as urethral pressure exceeds intravesical pressure. It was thought that measuring the pressure exerted by the urethra in relation to the intravesical pressure would predict… Urethral pressure profilometry   



Urethral Retroresistance Pressure

A new urodynamic measurement system for urethral retroresistance pressure (URP) has been described. URP is defined as the pressure required to achieve and maintain an open urethral sphincter and is measured by occluding the urethral meatus with a cone-tipped plug placed 5 mm in the urethra.

Sterile fluid is then infused retrograde at… Urethral Retroresistance Pressure   



Role of Urodynamic Testing in the Assessment of Female SUI

Although urodynamic testing is frequently performed as part of the evaluation of SUI, the benefits obtained by performing such testing have not been well defined. Advocates of a “minimalist” approach argue that direct observation of stress incontinence on physical examination is sufficient to allow the treating physician to proceed with surgery in the majority… Role of Urodynamic Testing in the Assessment of Female SUI
