  • Aims and objectives of this session

    This course aims to provide a practical course offering an interactive “hands-on” environment for doctors, nurses and technicians to improve their skills in urodynamics.

    Course description:
    Plenary Session How to perform CMG, VCMG, AmbCMG, UPP and RLPP

    Station 1 Urodynamics: The principles of pressure and flow measurements. The limitation and advantages of each approach, potential artefacts and their mitigations will also be discussed.
    Station 2 Male case studies: Characteristic traces of filling voiding and voiding phase traces as well as fluoroscopy images of outlet obstruction.
    Station 3 Female case studies: Characteristic filling, voiding and voiding phase traces as well as fluoroscopy images of outlet obstruction and with emphasis on the assessment of stress urinary incontinence.
    Station 4 Neuropathic case studies: Special considerations of performing urodynamics in this cohort as well as characteristic traces and images will be discussed.

    Target audience: For all participants with an interest in Urodynamics
