Ambulatory Urodynamics

  • Giancarlo Vignoli


Conventional urodynamics is a “nonphysiological” test, since it involves a retrograde rapid filling of the bladder in a laboratory setting which does not always allow a reliable reproduction of patient symptoms. Ambulatory urodynamics analyzes the bladder and urethral function in the condition of everyday life.
