La uroflujometria es un estudio no invasivo del tracto urinario inferior que entrega informacion objetiva del flujo urinario, resultado final de la miccion. Cuando es normal, permite descartar razonablemente obstruccion urinaria baja y alteracion de la contractilidad vesical. Los parametros mas utilizados en este examen son el volumen orinado, el flujo maximo, el flujo promedio y el patron de la curva de flujo. Los valores normales dependen del volumen orinado, del sexo y la edad del paciente…

Estudio flujo-presión de la micción en el hombre

The International Continence Society (ICS) nomenclature, the bladder detrusor and urethral functions during voiding, as well as some principles of voiding mechanics are described.



Interpretation of uroflowmetry curves by urologists.

The ICS-'BPH' Study: uroflowmetry, lower urinary tract symptoms and bladder outlet obstruction.

Performance statistics for Qmax with respect to BOO may be used to define more accurately the presence or absence of BOO in men presenting with LUTS, so avoiding the need for formal pressure-flow studies in everyday clinical practice, while improving the likelihood of a successful outcome from prostatectomy.

Maximum urinary flow rate by uroflowmetry: automatic or visual interpretation.

Good urodynamic practices: Uroflowmetry, filling cystometry, and pressure‐flow studies * *

This report focuses on the most common urodynamics examinations; uroflowmetry, pressure recording during filling cystometry, and combined pressure–flow studies.

Male peak urinary flow rate: relationships to volume voided and age.

Urine flow rates in male and female urodynamic patients compared with the Liverpool nomograms.

The 25th and the 10th centile appeared to be most appropriate lower limits of normality for both urine flow rates to identify those men more likely to be obstructed and those women at higher risk of voiding difficulties.

Maximum and average urine flow rates in normal male and female populations--the Liverpool nomograms.

These nomograms offer reference ranges for both maximum and average urinary flow rates in both sexes covering a wide range of voided volumes (15-600 ml) and showed an equally strong relationship to voided volume.

Does urethral instrumentation affect uroflowmetry measurements?

Voided volume increased (and consequently residual urine decreased) in females after catheterisation, but did not change significantly in males, while in females only the maximum flow rate decreased, the mean flow rate remaining unchanged.

Uroflowmetry and urodynamics.

A critical review is provided for the various urodynamic modalities such as uroflowmetry and multichannel urodynamics as it pertains to its clinical application and study of BPH.
