Abstract

PURPOSE OF REVIEW: To evaluate the role of preoperative urodynamics in predicting postoperative voiding dysfunction in patients undergoing anti-incontinence surgery. RECENT FINDINGS: Voiding dysfunction after anti-incontinence procedures is not an uncommon finding, along with being a difficult one to treat. Many patients undergo preoperative urodynamics in an attempt to further characterize their incontinence preoperatively and possibly provide information regarding prognosis postoperatively. However, the role of routine urodynamics in patients undergoing anti-incontinence surgery is somewhat controversial, with mixed findings in regard to support of this practice being found in the literature. SUMMARY: The literature on the role of preoperative urodynamics in predicting voiding dysfunction after anti-incontinence surgery is reviewed.
