Medical evaluation

Urodynamics Unit.

Includes the study, diagnosis, treatment, counseling and continuous monitoring of patients with neuro-urological disease and spinal cord injury (of congenital, traumatic, infectious, degenerative, iatrogenic causes, …) or neurogenic voiding dysfunction. Its objective is the preservation of renal function, trying to restore, as far as possible, without voiding dynamic functional compromise of the upper urinary sections. A close liaison between Rehabilitation, Nephrology, Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery services and the Andrology Unit must be maintained.

The fundamental mission is the prevention of urinary incontinence in women at risk, its correction in patients suffering this condition and collaboration with gynecologists to minimize the risks of urological problems in gynecologic surgery. Therefore a close relationship between the gynecology service and Urodynamics unit must exist.
