Participants: The participants in this study will be women who have undergone gynecologic surgery at UNC-Chapel Hill.
Subjects will be enrolled in the study when presenting to the UNC gynecology outpatient clinic for surgical preoperative evaluation. After surgery, each woman will undergo a voiding trial to assess for urinary retention after surgery. This is currently performed on all patients undergoing surgery involving prolapse or incontinence. At UNC this is usually performed by allowing the bladder to spontaneously fill, then allowing the patient to void and afterward catheterizing the patient to check a postvoid residual ("spontaneous fill" technique). In this study, we will also assess bladder emptying separately by filling the bladder retrograde through the catheter already in place with 300 mL of saline and then removing the catheter and allowing the patient to void ("retrograde-fill" technique). We will determine postvoid residual indirectly by subtracting voided volume from the 300 mL infused volume. No catheterization will be performed with this technique. Both of these techniques will be performed. The order in which the two techniques will be performed will be randomized. We will then compare the outcomes of these two techniques of voiding trials to see if they are equivalent in assessing urinary retention. Of note, the retrograde fill technique is standard at other institutions and is not considered experimental.

Inability to empty the URINARY BLADDER with voiding (URINATION).
Symptoms of disorders of the lower urinary tract including frequency, NOCTURIA; urgency, incomplete voiding, and URINARY INCONTINENCE. They are often associated with OVERACTIVE BLADDER; URINARY INCOMPETENCE; and INTERSTITIAL CYSTITIS. Lower urinary tract symptoms in males were traditionally called PROSTATISM.
Narrowing of any part of the URETHRA. It is characterized by decreased urinary stream and often other obstructive voiding symptoms.
Work consisting of a clinical trial involving one or more test treatments, at least one control treatment, specified outcome measures for evaluating the studied intervention, and a bias-free method for assigning patients to the test treatment. The treatment may be drugs, devices, or procedures studied for diagnostic, therapeutic, or prophylactic effectiveness. Control measures include placebos, active medicine, no-treatment, dosage forms and regimens, historical comparisons, etc. When randomization using mathematical techniques, such as the use of a random numbers table, is employed to assign patients to test or control treatments, the trial is characterized as a RANDOMIZED CONTROLLED TRIAL.
