The maximum watts factor (WFmax) is often used to characterize detrusor contractility. It was recently shown that the WFmax may increase in some patients with chronic outlet obstruction. It is, however, unclear whether this increase reflects a dependence of the WFmax on the degree of outlet obstruction or whether it represents a true increase in detrusor contractility secondary to chronic outlet obstruction. Therefore, this study was performed to investigate this issue using a canine model of… CONTINUE READING
