Bladder outlet obstruction in women and abnormal detrusor function are a cause for LUTS and can result in voiding dysfunction. This is particularly true when facing surgical correction of urinary incontinence.
Yet, both are difficult to define and even more difficult to measure. No clinical syndromes are clearly related but the long term consequences may be important resulting in high residual volumes, infection and voiding difficulties.
It is urgent to have tools that can assess urethral resistance and detrusor function in women. The methodology used in males is not suitable to the female lower urinary tract. We depict the main urodynamic and clinical differences and propose adjustments to be used in clinical practice.
