The urodynamic procedures (UDS) are used to determine bladder function and capacity as well as cause of urinary symptoms such as incontinence or retention of urine.
You should come with a full bladder to the appointment. We will measure the speed and force of your urine flow (uroflow study). A very small soft catheter will be placed to drain your bladder completely. The bladder will be filled and pressure measurements will be taken. You will be asked to answer questions about the sensation of fullness as your bladder is filled. You will review all findings of the extensive UDS study once all of the results are organized and reviewed. At this follow up appointment, you will be able to discuss the best treatment options for you with Dr. Byrne based on your specific results.
