Abstract

Cystometry, a clinical test for assessment of detrusor function, may be used as a supplement to history and physical examination in patients with neurologic dysfunction of the urinary bladder. The test is based on the implicit assumption that the detrusor reflex response is a necessary prerequisite to efficient voiding. Since some patients may void by straining, cystometry should be supplemented by urodynamic and neurologic procedures for evaluation of micturition.
