(140) Thus, the role of videourodynamics
in OAB has not been determined
In some studies reported, no correlation between videourodynamics
finding and severity of MS was found, [sup] but in others a direct link between EDSS and urologic complaints was reported.
The book gives step by step instructions on urodynamic testing basic evaluation, and more complex evaluation using videourodynamics
. It is organized to take medical readers specializing in obstetrics and gynecology, urology, or female pelvic medicine and reconstructive surgery through the treatment decision-making process, including planning for complications and how they will be treated before a procedure.
UDSs can be simple and non-invasive (bladder diary and flow rate) or invasive (cystometrogram and videourodynamics
Clinical assessment included medical and bladder history, physical examination (including stress and neurological testing, and cognitive testing using the MMSE), and videourodynamics
. Clinical and urodynamic assessment, three-day bladder diary, and pad test were repeated after the intervention (as required for the parent study).
The value of videourodynamics
in the investigation of neurologically normal children who wet.
The availability of the urodynamic equipments in the departments was as follows: uroflowmetry: 87% (n = 81), invasive urodynamics (cystometrography + pressure-flow studies): 65.5% (n = 61), electromyography (EMG): 43% (n = 40), and videourodynamics
: 47.3% (n = 44).
If necessary, cystoscopy, urodynamics or videourodynamics
were performed to exclude other conditions causing OAB symptoms.
Urethral diverticula were diagnosed by voiding cystourethrogram performed at the time of videourodynamics
or by magnetic resonance imaging (MRI).
Siblings cannot remain in the testing suite if the patient is undergoing videourodynamics
testing owing to the use of fluoroscopy.
Urodynamic studies were performed in the Urodynamics Laboratory in the Division of Urology, Department of Pediatric Surgery using Aymed Dyno videourodynamics
device (Aymed Dyno videourodynamics
Urodynamics and videourodynamics
provide in-depth information about capacity, compliance, and contractility of the bladder.
