BACKGROUND: Different methods for induction and monitoring of urethral sphincter deficiency were explored in a large animal model. METHODS: Sphincter deficiency was established in female pigs by dilatation and cauterization, and amount and frequencies of voiding were monitored and explored by pad test. Sphincteric closure pressures were recorded prior to and immediately after treatment of each animal, and on day 21 by two techniques: standard urethral pressure profilometry (s-UPP) and high-definition urethral pressure profilometry (HD-UPP)...

AIMS: Women with functional voiding dysfunction often experience a "catching" sensation when catheterising and are in general investigated with both urethral pressure profilometry (UPP) and sphincter electromyography (EMG). It is unknown whether the pattern of the UPP trace correlates with this sensation of "catching" or with sphincter EMG findings. METHODS: We reviewed the database of all women with voiding dysfunction who had undergone both sphincter EMG and UPP to assess for any relationship between pattern of UPP trace and "catching" on catheterization and/or sphincter EMG findings...

AIM: To investigate if injection of cells in the urethral sphincter complex causes unspecific bulking effects. METHODS: Human mesenchymal stromal cells were isolated, expanded, and characterized. For transurethral injection, cells were labeled with the fluorescent dye PKH26 and in magnetic resonance imaging associated experiments with superparamagnetic particles. Aliquots of cells in 250 µL solvent were injected under vision in the urethral sphincter of immuno-suppressed Göttingen minipigs...

INTRODUCTION: Recently, a new urodynamic method for the assessment of stress urinary incontinence called high definition urethral pressure profilometry (HD-UPP) has been introduced. This method combines a novel microtip catheter with advanced signal processing to enable spatial data location and the reconstruction of a pressure image inside the urethra. In order to assess the reproducibility of HD-UPP data, we statistically evaluate HD-UPP datasets and compare them to data from a double balloon air-charged system...

OBJECTIVES: To investigate the effects of propofol and isoflurane on urethral pressure profilometry of female dogs and goats, and to identify the method of anesthesia that least influences urethral pressure profilometry and to assess its reproducibility. METHODS: The effects of premedication with midazolam, propofol sedation and isoflurane anesthesia were assessed in five female dogs. The effects of propofol and isoflurane were compared in seven goats, whereas in another group of 19 goats, the state of deep propofol sedation was compared with the state of recovery from propofol sedation...

INTRODUCTION: Dysfunctional voiding results from a disturbance in the coordination between sphincter relaxation and detrusor contraction. Video urodynamic studies with electromyography (EMG) are used for diagnosis but have limitations of availability and interpretation. We identified a plateau type voiding detrusor pressure tracing pattern in these patients with a potential of helping diagnosis. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Urodynamic data and tracings of adult patients having been diagnosed with external urethral sphincter dysfunction (EUSD) were retrospectively analyzed...

INTRODUCTION: The aim of the study was to analyse the correlation of subjective complaints and urethral pressure profilometry (UPP) data in women with different types of urinary incontinence (UI): stress UI (SUI), urgency UI (UUI), and mixed UI (MixUI). METHODS: A study group of 405 women with complaints about UI were surveyed (UDI-6; ICIQ-UI) to determine the subjectively dominant type of UI, and UPP was performed for all these women. The variables analysed by UPP were the maximum urethral closure pressure at rest (MUCPrest), maximum urethral closure pressure at cough stress (MUCPstress), functional urethral length at rest (FULrest), functional urethral length during cough stress (FULstress) test and pressure transmission ratio (PTR)...

BACKGROUND: Urethral pressure profilometry (UPP) is used in the diagnosis of stress urinary incontinence (SUI) which is a significant medical, social, and economic problem. Low spatial pressure resolution, common occurrence of artifacts, and uncertainties in data location limit the diagnostic value of UPP. To overcome these limitations, high definition urethral pressure profilometry (HD-UPP) combining enhanced UPP hardware and signal processing algorithms has been developed. In this work, we present the different signal processing steps in HD-UPP and show experimental results from female minipigs...

Urethral Pressure Profilometry (UPP) is a tool in the diagnosis of urinary incontinence. The pressure profile along the urethra is measured by a special catheter in order to assess the contraction strength of the sphincter muscle. The use of microtip catheters with several pressure sensors and an integrated acceleration sensor enables signal reconstruction of the pressure distribution on the urethra's inside. Experimental data from minipigs exhibit artifact patterns in the pressure data. It is shown that these artifacts are caused by vascular pulsation in the sphincter structure...

INTRODUCTION AND HYPOTHESIS: Stress urinary incontinence (SUI) is managed with pelvic floor muscle training (PFMT), but the mechanism of treatment action is unclear. Resting maximal urethral closure pressure (MUCP) is lower in women with SUI, but it is unknown whether PFMT can alter resting MUCP. This systematic review evaluated whether voluntary pelvic floor muscle (PFM) contraction increases MUCP above its resting value (augmented MUCP) and the effect of PFMT on resting and augmented MUCP...

INTRODUCTION: Urethral pressure profilometry (UPP) is used in the diagnosis of stress urinary incontinence (SUI). SUI is a significant medical, social, and economic problem, affecting about 12.5% of the population. A novel microtip catheter was developed for UPP featuring an inclination sensor and higher angular resolution compared to systems in clinical use today. Therewith, the location of each measured pressure sample can be determined and the spatial pressure distribution inside the urethra reconstructed...

INTRODUCTION: The relevant terminology for stress urinary incontinence (SUI) is affected by the context, namely the clinical assessment (the symptom of SUI elicited on history taking and the sign of SUI observed during examination) or diagnostic investigations (urodynamic stress incontinence). In some cases, SUI may only be observed after the reduction in coexistent prolapse (occult SUI). Classifying SUI often relies on distinguishing between intrinsic sphincter deficiency (ISD), and urethral malposition or hypermobility, although this potentially an over-simplification...

OBJECTIVES: Female stress urinary incontinence is caused by urethral dysfunction during dynamic conditions, but current technology has limitations in measuring urethral pressures under these conditions. An 8-French high-resolution manometry (HRM) catheter currently in clinical use in gastroenterology may accurately measure urethral pressures under dynamic conditions because it has a 25-millisecond response rate and circumferential pressure sensors along the length of the catheter (ManoScan ESO; Given Imaging, Yoqneam, Israel)...
