Can Staccato and Interrupted/Fractionated Uroflow Patterns Alone Correctly Identify the Underlying Lower Urinary Tract Condition
The Journal of Urology, 05/11/2012
Wenske S et al. – Diagnoses based on uroflow pattern appearance without simultaneous electromyography to support them can be misleading, and reliance on uroflow pattern alone can lead to overdiagnoses of dysfunctional voiding and detrusor underactivity. When assessing patients with uroflow, an accompanying simultaneous pelvic floor electromyography is of utmost importance for improving diagnostic accuracy and thereby allowing for the most appropriate therapy.
