Abnormal post-void residual urine
was defined as PVR more than 10% of the voided volume measured by ultrasound.
When significant residual urine
is present, it represents degree of bladder decompensation and failure which indicates that an appropriate urodynamic appraisal is overdue.
34) Maximum urine flow rates increased significantly by approximately 18%, and average urine flow rates increased by nearly 18%, while residual urine
volume (the amount of urine left in the bladder) after voiding significantly decreased by approximately 45%.
5) ml/s) and high amount of residual urine
exceeding 38 % (median 43.
Urologie, medical, and neurologic histories should be obtained, for instance, and retention issues (which can aggravate UI) should be ruled out through the measurement of postvoid residual urine
The bladder capacity, abdominal pressure, bladder pressure, detrusor pressure, electromyographic activity (EMG) of the pelvic base muscles, compliance, type of the urinary flow, speed of the urinary flow (Qmax) and residual urine
volume were recorded.
Patients and Methods: Patients presenting with lower urinary tract symptoms over the age of 50 years were evaluated on International Prostate Symptoms Score (IPSS), clinically examined and post-voiding residual urine
determined on abdominal ultrasonography.
The postvoid residual urine
volume was evaluated in all patients in a urodynamic investigation.
max]), and subsequently, their postvoid residual urine
An ultrasound study, specifically of the bladder, to determine the bladder wall thickness, the residual urine
, and the upper tract can be helpful.
BPH screening in the men over the age of 50 was carried out using the following methods: survey of respondents with the universal questionnaire, with filling of the international assessment questionnaire for the prostate disease symptoms; physical survey including external examination of organs of a scrotum and digital rectal examination of a prostate; ultrasonic research of kidneys, urinary ways and a prostate to assess the presence and volume of a residual urine
, scoping of a prostate and an average flow rate of urine.
