Cystometrogram: the low-cost method for rural areas and its benefits.

Abstract

Cystometrography (CMG) is a means of studying bladder pressure. It is a very useful diagnostic tool in patients with lower urinary tract symptoms for which a simple cystoscopy will not offer sufficient information to form a diagnosis. Of the 8893 patients who underwent screening for urological conditions in rural northeast India during 2010-2014, 280 with lower urinary tract symptoms were investigated with a combination of cystoscopy and CMG. By corresponding CMG diagnosis and treatment, we could examine patients' overall satisfaction with both the procedure and the treatment. We describe a low-cost method of CMG and our results using this method in rural areas of India.
