See How It Works
What is Urodynamic Study ?
Urodynamic tests are used to diagnose urinary incontinence and other lower urinary tract disorders. These tests are available to both men and women. Urodynamic tests are performed to figure out things like:
- Nerve and muscle function.
- Pressure around and in the bladder.
- Flow rates and other factors.
To see how successfully the bladder, sphincters, and urethra store and release urine, tests are performed (pee).
These tests are used to diagnose problems with the lower urinary tract. The urinary tract is the body’s waste and excess fluid drainage mechanism. The results of urodynamic testing will help you and your healthcare provider choose the best treatment option.
The majority of urodynamic tests are used to measure how well and fast the bladder stores urine. The bladder should be capable of continuously releasing pee until it is fully empty. Urine leaks can occur if your bladder contracts (squeezes) without your permission.
Types of Urodynamic Tests:
Cystometric Test – A cystometric test, also known as a cystometrogram, is a treatment that uses catheters to assess the pressure inside your bladder. The test can tell you how much your bladder can retain, how flexible it is, and how frequently you need to urinate. The test can detect abnormal contractions or spasms in your detrusor muscle while your bladder is full (smooth muscle in the bladder wall). Even though the catheter is inserted into the urethra, the test is painless. A catheter is a small, flexible tube.
Electromyogram – If your healthcare professional suspects a nerve or muscle injury is causing your urine problem, they will order an electromyogram. The electrical activity of the muscles and nerves in and around the bladder is measured using sensors. During electromyography, sensors are utilized to detect the electrical activity of the muscles and nerves in and around the bladder and sphincters. Electrode patches near the urethra and rectum catch electrical currents when the pelvic floor muscles contract.
Uroflowmetry– Another test that determines how much and how rapidly you urinate is uroflowmetry. Your provider will want you to have a full bladder when you come in for this test. You will be asked to urinate into specialized equipment in order to take measurements. A computer measures the amount and flow rate automatically and generates a graph that shows any changes. If you have weak bladder muscles or a blockage, the test will disclose it.
Post Void residual measurement test– The post-void residual measurement test examines how much urine is left in your bladder after it has been emptied. The postvoid residual refers to the urine that remains after a void. This can be determined using ultrasound equipment, which uses sound waves to create a picture of the bladder (called a bladder scanner). A catheter is placed into the urethra and then into the bladder to remove the surplus pee in order to assess post-void residuals.
Video urodynamic exams – The post-void residual measurement test examines how much urine is left in your bladder after it has been emptied. The postvoid residual refers to the urine that remains after a void. This can be determined using ultrasound equipment, which uses sound waves to create a picture of the bladder (called a bladder scanner). A catheter is placed into the urethra and then into the bladder to remove the surplus pee in order to assess post-void residuals.
When is Urodynamic Study required ?
Doctors utilize urodynamic tests to check the function of your bladder and urethra. (the tube that drains your bladder’s pee)
- If you have any of the symptoms listed below, your doctor may order the following tests:
- Incontinence of any form, including urine leaking.
- Urinary impulses that strike without notice, as well as frequent urination
- Infections of the urinary tract or pain during urinating.
- You can’t seem to start urinating or entirely empty your bladder.
What Results Can I Expect from Urodynamic Study?
You would be informed of the results of cystometry and uroflowmetry right away. Electromyograms and video urodynamic testing, for example, may take a few days to process the results. Your healthcare provider will go through the test results with you and explain the next steps.

Treatment: Neobladder Reconstruction
Frequently Asked Questions
Prostatectomy is most commonly used to treat localized prostate cancer. It can be used on its own or in combination with other treatments including radiation, chemotherapy, and hormone therapy. To treat men with localized prostate cancer, a Neobladder Reconstruction is a surgery that removes the entire prostate gland and associated lymph nodes.
The goal of a Neobladder Reconstruction is to eliminate prostate cancer completely. It is a serious procedure with the potential for complications. This form of surgery may not be essential if you’re an older man with slow-growing prostate cancer.
Based on the natural history of localized prostate cancer, males treated with Neobladder Reconstruction (RP) or definitive external-beam radiation (EBRT) should have a life expectancy (LE) of more than ten years.
Urinary incontinence (inability to control urine) and erectile dysfunction are the most common side effects after Neobladder Reconstruction (impotence; problems getting or keeping erections). Other types of prostate cancer treatment can also cause these side effects.
Prostate cancer can recur after a prostatectomy. According to a 2013 study, 20–40% of men with prostate cancer relapse within 10 years of undergoing a Neobladder Reconstruction.
Following your operation, your doctor may prescribe drugs such as sildenafil, vardenafil, or tadalafil. These drugs act by increasing blood flow to the penis, which may help you get an erection again.
Because prostate removal is a big procedure, expect some discomfort and anguish. At first, you’ll be given pain medicine by IV, and your doctor may also prescribe pain medication for you to take at home. For the first week, you will also have a urine catheter in place, which you may find painful.
No is the answer! If there is urine in the bladder (which there almost always is), it will flow right out. Men who don’t have a prostate need to find another technique to control their urinating.

In the weeks after the catheter is removed, most patients regain control. Within 3 to 18 months after surgery, the vast majority of men who had normal urine control before the treatment regain it.
A PSA of more than 0.2 ng/ml is considered high following prostatectomy. If the prostate cells have developed to the point where detectable amounts of PSA may be detected, this could be concerning for both the patient and the doctor.
