(ūr′ŏ-flō″) [ uro- + flow]
The volume of urine voided in a specified period. Low flow rates associated with high bladder pressures occur in bladder outlet obstruction.

The uroflow rates of 43 of the subjects were below the fifth percentile in three patients, equivocal (between the 5th and 25th percentile) in four patients and above the 25th percentile in 36 patients.
Urodynamic evaluation was composed of systometric assessment and uroflow techniques.
The normality of the study is confirmed by low pressure filling to a normal capacity, indicating a normally compliant bladder, with an appropriate rise in detrusor pressure during the micturition reflex and attendant bell-shaped uroflow.
A meta-analysis from approximately 10 years ago showed that, compared with placebo, saw palmetto significantly reduced nocturia and improved peak uroflow.
There was observation of an improvement in uroflow, both maximum and mean, and in residual volume in all treatment groups.
Test Measures Non-instrumented uroflow Maximum flow rate Mean flaw rate Time to maximum flow Voided volume Post void residual Flow pattern Urethral pressure profile Maximum urethral closure pressure Functional urethral length Cystometrogram Baseline and capacity pressures First desire Strong desire Maximum cystometric capacity Compliance Valsalva leak paint pressure Involuntary detrusar contraction Pressure flow Maximum flow rate Detrusar pressure at maximum flow Time to maximum flow Voided volume Voiding mechanism Post void residual Table 4.
As early as one month following the initiation of therapy, the use of cetrorelix was associated with a dose- dependent, statistically significant improvement of clinical signs and symptoms, including IPSS and maximum uroflow, compared to placebo.
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.
Prostatic enlargement can cause obstructive symptoms like incomplete emptying of the bladder and decreased uroflow, as well as irritative symptoms (e.
During the test, you urinate into a uroflow meter, a funnel-shaped device that reads, measures and computes the rate and amount of urine flow.
