Voiding dysfunction in women is often not well recognised and the pathophysiology poorly understood. This can result in adverse outcomes for our patients, particularly post-operatively. Sometimes the aetiology can be largely anatomical, secondary to prolapse or urethral pathology and will improve with prolapse surgery. Alternatively, the impact from longer term obstruction may indicate very different management. And then there are those patients with a more complex, functional or neurological cause for their impaired voiding function.
Urologist Dr Howard Goldman will present for ICS on functional and neurological conditions causing female voiding dysfunction including presentation, diagnosis and implications for our care of patients with such disorders.
Former IUGA president Dr Lynsey Hayward from Auckland will cover the anatomical or mechanical causes of impaired voiding. How do we accurately diagnose the extent of detrusor compromise, can we use this to help determine appropriate surgical approaches and how do we advise patients as to likely recovery of voiding efficiency?
