Patients then attended up to six additional 30-minute follow-up appointments to review uroflow
, DVSS, and other clinical data.
The per-urethral catheter (PUC) was routinely removed on the morning after surgery, followed by free uroflow
assessment in the evening.
The VPSS has been developed and validated against the IPSS, correlated with peak flow rate (Qmax) and Qwave from uroflow
studies, (7) and has had content and construct validity established (Fig.
The study was carried out on the Urodynamic machine consisting of a uroflow
transducer, a pressure transducer stand and an instrument showing different panels:
Whenever feasible, the child can be placed on a micturition seat and allowed to void into a uroflow
Decrease in IPSS and increase in uroflow
rates were also noted after treatment.
(17) Early cystoscopy is indicated to rule out erosion, along with uroflow
study to assess for voiding dysfunction.
Initially all patients were evaluated by a proforma that includes detailed history, physical examination, stamey grading, pad test, uroflow
, VLPP, cystoscopy and Bonneys test.
begins when the detrusor contraction overcomes urethral resistance, and it is sustained until the bladder vesicle is empty or nearly empty of urine.
Patients underwent a history and physical examination (including Baden-Walker prolapse grading and stress test), 24-hour voiding diary, pad test (for urinary incontinence), urinalysis, and uroflow
with post-void residual volume.
The patients were re-evaluated after 6 months and 1 year by uroflow
, USG abdomen and RGU, and the stricture recurrence rate compared with control group.
The urology nurses identified 98 distinct roles, and the most common activities performed by the entire group were patient/family education, catheterization, intermittent catheterization, bladder ultrasound, change/manage suprapubic catheters, medication administration, uroflow
, and assist urologist with procedure.
