Bladder weight aids continence assessment

  • Comment

The relationship between bladder weight, lower urinary tract symptoms and urodynamic studies may be a useful tool for continence assessment.

This is the conclusion of research carried out at St Mary’s Hospital, London. The researchers studied women with lower urinary tract symptoms to identify if there was a relationship between ultrasound estimation of bladder weight, lower urinary tract symptoms and urodynamic studies.

They identified that women with overactive bladder and detrusor overactivity had a higher ultrasound estimation of bladder weight than those with other types of incontinence.
