Abstract

Urodynamic studies now have an accepted place in the investigation of many urological, gynaecological, geriatric and neurological patients with lower urinary tract symptôme. Like all new investigation techniques urodynamic studies are taking a time to achieve widespread acceptance. This may be partly due to the relative complexity and expense of the recording equipment required. However, it has been the reliability and accuracy of the equipment, which has become available in the last 10 years, that has made routine urodynamic studies worthwhile. Continuous pressure measurement by robust transducers and the use of chart recorders represents a considerable advance on hand-drawn cystometrograms constructed using incremental bladder filling and pressure recorded by a water manometer.
