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.
12) found no significant difference between the mean maximum detrusor pressure in the first and second cystometries compared with the third and fourth cystometries, which were performed with 10 minutes intervals between them in a SCI population with overactive detrusors.
Vesical pressure is defined as detrusor pressure (pressure due to the bladder wall) plus abdominal pressure; it is the pressure recorded in the bladder after a hydrostatic zero pressure is set external to the patient and at the top of the suprapubic bone.
3] In addition, the risk of damaging the upper urinary tract also increases,[4] both because UTIs can spread to the kidneys and because persistently raised detrusor pressure (a characteristic of neurogenic OAB) can lead to a condition called "reflux nephropathy" - damage resulting from the backward flow of urine into the kidney - which in severe cases is a significant cause of end-stage chronic renal failure.

The two studies were correlated statistically; 66 patients had voiding phase analysis, recording individual voiding parameters: Max detrusor pressure (Pdet), voiding time (VT), Max uroflow (Qmax), Post-void residual (PVR), and abdominal straining.
Patients in both groups who improved had changes in detrusor pressure rise when the bladder was filled and in their first desire to void.
