intermittent voiding pattern female women

Mayank Mohan Agarwal, Saurabh Jain, Ravimohan Mavuduru, Shrawan K Singh, Arup K Mandal
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...

Dysfunctional voiding is characterized by an intermittent and/or fluctuating flow rate due to involuntary intermittent contractions of the periurethral striated or levator muscles during voiding in neurologically normal women (International Continence Society definition). Due to the variable etiology, the diagnosis and treatment of DV is problematic. Frequently, the diagnosis is done at a late stage mainly due to non-specific symptoms and lack of awareness. The objectives of treatment are to normalize micturition patterns and prevent complications such as renal failure and recurrent infections...

PURPOSE: The aim of this study was to assess the clinical efficacy of distigmine bromide, an anticholinesterase agent, deemed to improve detrusor function thereby restoring normal voiding patterns in patients suffering from detrusor underactivity. MATERIALS AND METHODS: A total of 27 patients (11 men and 16 women) with poor detrusor function were included in the study. The diagnosis was established using pressure-flow studies. All patients received distigmine bromide at a dose of 5 mg three times daily for 4 weeks and re-attended for a follow-up urodynamic investigation...

The definition and grading of voiding problems in women with lower urinary tract symptoms varies. Using various diagnostic criteria, a prevalence ranging from 6.6% to 20% has been quoted (Groutz et al., 2000; Lemack et al., 2000). Diagnosis often depends on a combination of history, free-flow uroflowmetry (FFU) and pressure flow studies (PFS). As most bladder neck operations can induce voiding problems or exacerbate an already existing voiding problem, the need to establish the voiding status of women before bladder neck operation is vital...

OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the relation between post-voiding residual urine (PVR) and urodynamic findings, voiding patterns, and the degree of prolapse in women with cystourethrocele. PATIENTS AND METHODS: According to the average PVR value measured by means of catheterization after three separate and spontaneous micturitions, 73 women with minimal urethral hypermobility (n = 8) or colpocystocele (n = 65) were subdivided into 3 groups: group 1 = patients with a PVR of < or =50 ml; group 2 = patients with a PVR of >50 ml and < or =150 ml, and group 3 = patients with a PVR of >150 ml and < or =500 ml...

Data concerning learned voiding dysfunction (Hinman syndrome; non-neurogenic, neurogenic bladder) in adults are scarce. The present study was conducted to assess the pre-valence and clinical characteristics of this dysfunction among adults referred for evaluation of lower urinary tract symptoms. Learned voiding dysfunction was suggested by a characteristic clinical history and intermittent "free" uroflow pattern and by the absence of any detectable neurological abnormality or anatomic urethral obstruction. A definitive diagnosis was made by the demonstration of typical external urethral sphincter contractions during micturition by EMG or fluoroscopy...

Recurrent urinary tract infections (UTI) are common among young healthy women even though they generally have anatomically and physiologically normal urinary tracts. Women with recurrent UTI have an increased susceptibility to vaginal colonization with uropathogens, which is due to a greater propensity for uropathogenic coliforms to adhere to uroepithelial cells. Risk factors for recurrent UTI include sexual intercourse, use of spermicidal products, having a first UTI at an early age, and having a maternal history of UTIs...

PURPOSE: We evaluated whether a 7Fr transurethral catheter affects urinary flow in women undergoing pressure flow studies for voiding symptoms. MATERIALS AND METHODS: We reviewed a urodynamic database of 600 consecutive women referred for the evaluation of voiding symptoms. Before urodynamics all patients voided privately using a standard toilet and free flow was recorded. Urodynamics were performed using a 7Fr double lumen transurethral catheter. At functional bladder capacity patients were asked to void in the sitting position and pressure flow studies were performed...

OBJECTIVES: Although the advent of orthotopic lower urinary reconstruction in women is a major achievement in the evolution of urinary diversion, the mechanism of voiding dysfunction remains incompletely understood. We report on the voiding function of ileal neobladder in 12 female patients. METHODS: A neobladder was constructed using an ileal segment. Voiding function was evaluated in terms of voiding pattern and continence. Chain cystography was performed postoperatively to detect the existence of urethral angulation...

OBJECTIVES: To evaluate morbidity and quality of life (QOL) in patients with continent urinary diversion. METHODS: Morbidity and neobladder function were analyzed in 56 consecutive patients with bladder substitutions. QOL assessment was performed using the Sickness Impact Profile (SIP), supplemented with a detailed voiding and continence questionnaire. RESULTS: Mean age was 44.7 years. Mean follow-up was 41 months. Thirty-one men and 25 women were treated for transitional cell carcinoma (n = 22) or benign conditions (n = 34)...

PURPOSE: Orthotopic lower urinary tract reconstruction has revolutionized urinary diversion following cystectomy. Initially performed solely in male patients, orthotopic diversion has now become a viable option in women. Currently, the orthotopic neobladder is the diversion of choice for women requiring lower urinary tract reconstruction at our institution. We evaluate and update our clinical and functional experience with orthotopic reconstruction in female patients. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Since June 1990, 34 women 31 to 86 years old (median age 67) have undergone orthotopic lower urinary tract reconstruction following cystectomy...

During the last 5 years 13 neurologically normal women were seen with urodynamically proved urethral obstruction after a Marshall-Marchetti-Krantz operation. These obstructed patients were treated by a simple transvaginal procedure consisting of complete urethrolysis followed by a needle urethrovesical resuspension procedure. Postoperatively, 12 patients experienced complete disappearance of the presenting symptoms, return to a normal voiding pattern and decreased residuals of urine to less than 50 cc. The remaining patient, although urodynamically unobstructed, had to remain on intermittent catheterization...
