Dynamic Urethral Closure Pressure Profiles: Valsalva and Cough Profiles
Dynamic urethral closure pressure profiles are useful tests in the establishment of the diagnosis of genuine stress incontinence. By definition, genuine stress incontinence is a condition where an increase in intra-abdominal pressure leads to an increase in bladder pressure that is greater than urethral pressure in the absence of a bladder contraction. This condition is represented by a dynamic change in urethral closure pressure to zero or below known as pressure equalization during dynamic urethral closure pressure profiles.
