(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.

Uroflowmetry was measured by voiding into an uroflowmeter--Urodyn 1000 DANTEC Type 22 G02, which used an uroflow transducer from a rotating drum.
Uroflow measurements: Their information yield in a long term investigation of pre and post operative measurements.
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 physical examination should include a pelvic examination for females and prostate examination for males, abdominal examination, urinalysis, urine culture (if appropriate), and measurement of post-void residual (PVR), along with a uroflow (Rosier et al.
For the assessment of Qmax, Uroflow study had to be done by means of Solar urodynamic machine--Medical Measurements Systems (the Netherlands).
Patients were assessed for preoperative American Urological Association (AUA) symptom score, serum prostate-specific antigen, uroflow rates, and ultrasonography of kidney, ureter, and bladder (USG-KUB) with prostate size and postvoid residue (PVR).
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.
A 2002 Cochrane meta-analysis of 21 trials of saw palmetto extract for LUTS reported reduced nocturia, improved self-reported symptoms, and increased peak uroflow compared with placebo, without significant adverse effects.
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 about 10 years ago showed that, compared with placebo, saw palmetto significantly reduced nocturia and improved peak uroflow, as well as being rated by study subjects as more beneficial.
