Urinary retention in women is rare and diverse. Diagnostic criteria are not agreed and epidemiology is not well known. Forms of urinary retention in women include: complete retention, incomplete or insufficient emptying and elevated post-void residual. It may be acute or chronic, symptomatic or asymptomatic. Aetiology is multifactorial including anatomic or functional bladder outlet obstruction and bladder dysfunction related to neurological diseases, diabetes mellitus, aging, pharmacotherapy, pain and infective/Inflammatory disease and idiopathic or unknown aetiology. This workshop will analyse and discuss physiopathology, evaluation and management of urinary retention in women from an integral, practical and evidence based approach.
