urodynamics

 [u″ro-di-nam´iks]
the dynamics of the propulsion and flow of urine in the urinary tract. adj., adj urodynam´ic.



Urodynamic testing is done by injecting water or carbon dioxide into the bladder via a catheter. Bladder sensation, capacity, and strength of contraction, as well as ability to hold urine in the bladder, can thus be quantified.

u·ro·dy·nam·ics

(yūr'ō-dī-nam'iks),
The study of the storage of urine within, and the flow of urine through and from, the urinary tract.
[uro- + G. dynamis, force]

urodynamics

Functioning of the urinary bladder, urethral sphincter and pelvic floor muscles. Urodynamic studies, which may be made in various ways, involve measurement, over a period, of such parameters as urine flow rates; total bladder capacity; bladder urine volume before voiding; residual urine volume; bladder pressure before and during voiding; bladder contractability; urethral sphincter pressure; patient's perception of bladder fullness; and ability to inhibit voiding. Urodynamics has been described as the ‘gold standard investigation’ in the management of all forms of urinary incontinence.
