The role of bladder wall thickness in the evaluation of detrusor underactivity: Development of a clinical nomogram
Neurourology and Urodynamics Mar 10, 2020
De Nunzio C, Lombardo R, Cicione A, et al. - This study was undertaken to investigate noninvasive predictors for detrusor underactivity (DUA) in male individuals with lower urinary tract symptoms (LUTS) and benign prostatic enlargement (BPE). Researchers prospectively enrolled a consecutive series of individuals aged 45 years or older with non-neurogenic LUTS. They applied logistic regression analysis to evaluate predictors of DUA, defined as a bladder contractility index < 100 mm H2O. This study included a total of 448 individuals with a mean age of 66 ± 11 years. As per the outcomes, bladder wall thickness and Qmax can noninvasively prognosticate the presence of DUA in individuals with LUTS and BPE. Although this research should be confirmed in a larger prospective cohort, they perform the first available nomogram for the prediction of DUA in individuals with LUTS.Go to Original
