Urinary Incontinence Testing

Urinary Incontinence Testing

Urodynamic testing is any procedure that looks at how well the bladder, sphincters, and urethra are storing and releasing urine. Most urodynamic tests focus on the bladder’s ability to hold urine and empty steadily and completely. Urodynamic tests can also show whether the bladder is having involuntary contractions that cause urine leakage. A health care provider may recommend urodynamic tests if symptoms suggest problems with the lower urinary tract. Lower urinary tract symptoms (LUTS) include:

  • Urine Leakage
  • Frequent Urination
  • Painful Urination
  • Sudden, Strong Urges To Urinate
  • Problems Starting A Urine Stream
  • Problems Emptying The Bladder Completely
  • Recurrent Urinary Tract Infections

Treatment varies based on the underlying cause for urinary symptoms. Transvaginal Bladder Sling surgery is the most effective management for Stress Urinary Incontinence whereas many conditions are treatable with medications.
