Urodynamic studies are performed for those patients with incontinence, urinary frequency/urgency, urinary retention, and neurogenic bladder to asses the function of their bladder and urethra. It is an office based procedure with use of catheter, uroflowmetry, and electromyography.
How to prepare for the tests
There is no special preparation used for urodynamic studies. It is important to notify your doctor of any medical conditions or any medications you are taking prior to any testing.
