Clinical Utility of Lung-Generated Pressures in Determining Valsalva Leak Point Pressure in Patients Undergoing Urodynamic Studies

Clinical Utility of Lung-Generated Pressures in Determining Valsalva Leak Point Pressure in Patients Undergoing Urodynamic Studies

The aim of this study is to examine the utility of measuring Plung during Urodynamics in patients complaining of Stress Urinary Incontinence (SUI) symptoms.

Valsalva Leak Point Pressure (VLPP) is a measure of urethral function and is defined as the intravesical pressure at which urine leakage occurs due to increased abdominal pressure in the absence of a detrusor contraction. VLPP is a quantitative assessment that provides clinical information in determining if stress urinary incontinence is present.
