Urodynamic findings in women with pelvic organ prolapse and obstructive voiding symptoms.
Summary of "Urodynamic findings in women with pelvic organ prolapse and obstructive voiding symptoms."
To determine whether obstructive voiding symptoms in women with advanced pelvic organ prolapse (POP) were associated with objective bladder outflow tract obstruction.
We reviewed preoperative data from patients with advanced POP who underwent surgical correction at the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, Carmel Medical Center, Haifa, Israel, between December 1, 2005, and November 30, 2007. Obstructive voiding symptoms were recorded from Pelvic Floor Distress Inventory-20 questionnaires.
Of the 81 women aged 44-80years who were included in the study, 40 (49.4%) reported incomplete bladder emptying preoperatively. There was no significant difference between these women and asymptomatic women in terms of demographic and clinical parameters such as age, parity, and stage of prolapse. Furthermore, there was no significant difference with regard to postvoid residual bladder volume (52.8+/-65.8 vs 41.6+/-41.2mL), maximal (23.8+/-11 vs 21.9+/-9.6mL/second) and average (10.3+/-6.2 vs 9.3+/-4mL/second) urinary flow velocities, prevalence of increased postvoid residual volume (10.0% vs 4.8%), or obstructive urinary flow (17.5% vs 7.3%).
Almost half of all women with advanced POP experienced incomplete bladder emptying; however, this symptom did not correlate with objective urodynamic bladder outflow tract obstruction.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions
Pelvic Organ Prolapse
Abnormal descent of a pelvic organ resulting in the protrusion of the organ beyond its normal anatomical confines. Symptoms often include vaginal discomfort, DYSPAREUNIA; URINARY STRESS INCONTINENCE; and FECAL INCONTINENCE.
Soft tissue formed mainly by the pelvic diaphragm, which is composed of the two levator ani and two coccygeus muscles. The pelvic diaphragm lies just below the pelvic aperture (outlet) and separates the pelvic cavity from the PERINEUM. It extends between the PUBIC BONE anteriorly and the COCCYX posteriorly.
The prolapse or downward displacement of the VISCERA.
Sleep Apnea, Central
A condition associated with multiple episodes of sleep apnea which are distinguished from obstructive sleep apnea (SLEEP APNEA, OBSTRUCTIVE) by the complete cessation of efforts to breathe. This disorder is associated with dysfunction of central nervous system centers that regulate respiration. This condition may be idiopathic (primary) or associated with lower brain stem lesions; chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (LUNG DISEASES, OBSTRUCTIVE); HEART FAILURE, CONGESTIVE; medication effect; and other conditions. Sleep maintenance is impaired, resulting in daytime hypersomnolence. Primary central sleep apnea is frequently associated with obstructive sleep apnea. When both forms are present the condition is referred to as mixed sleep apnea (see SLEEP APNEA SYNDROMES). (Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, p395; Neurol Clin 1996;14(3):611-28)
The part of the pelvis, inferior to the pelvic brim, that comprises both the pelvic cavity and the part of the PERINEUM lying inferior to the PELVIC DIAPHRAGM.
