intravesical pressure

the pressure exerted on the contents of the urinary bladder, being the sum of the intraabdominal pressure from outside the bladder and the detrusor pressure exerted by the bladder wall musculature itself. Also called bladder pressure, vesical pressure.

1,3,4) Despite the volumes of knowledge gained in this field, however, contemporary clinical practice is limited to crude measures designed to minimize bladder distension and intravesical pressure, with clean intermittent catheterization (CIC) and anti-muscarinic medication.
The TBM remains temporarily closed under increased intravesical pressure and also provide a nonobstructed urinary flow from the kidneys toward the bladder.
c) Detrusor pressure is the intravesical pressure minus the intra-abdominal pressure.
Additionally, urodynamic work-up included: in cystometry: detrusor pressure at overactivity (Pdet overact), intravesical pressure at maximum cystometric capacity (Pves CC), and bladder wall compliance (Comp).
Detrusor overactivity is accompanied by dyssynergia with the striated external sphincter mechanism, leading to high intravesical pressure and incomplete bladder emptying.
Asymptomatic bacteriuria (ASB), incontinence, impaired bladder emptying, repeated instrumentation, vesiculoureteral reflux, indwelling urinary catheters, elevated intravesical pressure, stones, and neurological obstruction25 are also prevalent in patients with SCI.
Within 48 hours of the injury, he developed poor peripheral perfusion and a distended abdomen; the intravesical pressure was 32 mmHg and the abdominal perfusion pressure 23 mmHg.
Measuring the intravesical pressure intraoperatively immediately after closure of the abdominal wound is also recommended.
Urinary loss occurs secondary to an acute rise in intravesical pressure which exceeds urethral closure capacity.
