Absence of sufficient increase in the detrusor pressure in the urination phase.
Urethral closure pressure drops and detrusor pressure increases so that urine begins to flow.
Generally, there is little or no change in detrusor pressure during the filling process.
Various urodynamic parameters like detrusor contractility, detrusor pressure, sensation, compliance, residual urine, flow velocity, urethral resistance etc.
The volume in the bladder should not affect the VLPP as long as the detrusor pressure is kept at a level that does not affect the urethra.
Methods: The study retrospectively evaluated 160 men and 23 women, aged >40 years and with a detrusor pressure at maximal flow rate (P [sub]det Q [sub]max) of ≥40 cmH [sub]2 O in men, who underwent urodynamic testing.
Studies investigating lesion severity and bladder function found no significant difference between complete and incomplete lesions in terms of maximum detrusor pressure and MC (21); mean MC and mean intravesical leak-point pressures were not significantly different between AIS-A and AIS B-E patients (22); although DO was more benign in AIS-B patients than in AIS-A patients, neuropathic bladder type and compliance were not significantly different between AIS-A and AIS-B patients (23).
Regarding the urodynamic parameters the maximum cystometric capacity of bladder increased by 60% (from 205 to 331ml) the volume at first desire to void increased from 104ml to 204ml and the detrusor pressure decreased by 49%.
In urodynamics we assessed: in uroflowmetry: time to max flow, flow and voiding time, maximum and average flow rate, voided volume, residual urine (calculated by USG immediately after micturition); in cystometry: detrusor pressure at overactivity (Pdet overact), detrusor pressure at cystometric capacity (PdetCC) and compliance of the bladder wall (Comp); in uroflowmetry.
Bladder compliance describes the relationship between the change in volume and change in detrusor pressure and is expressed in millilitres per centimetre of water (ml/cm[H.
Bladder capacity, intraabdominal pressure, bladder pressure, detrusor pressure, electromyographic (EMG) activity of the pelvic floor muscles and residual urine volumes were evaluated.
