Urodynamic study in enuretic children

Journal Title: Medpulse International Journal of Pediatrics - Year 2017, Vol 3, Issue 1


Background: Nocturnal enuresis is probably the most common developmental disorder affecting 15-20% of children of 5 years age. Urodynamic study (UDS) today is a compilation of the results obtained by cystometry, uroflowmetry, uroprofilometry and electromyography. Aim: To establish a predictive correlation between symptomatology and urodynamic study abnormalities in enuretic children. Materials and Methods: This prospective study was conducted in 20 children who presented with nocturnal enuresis and day and night time incontinence and were attending the Child Guidance Clinic (CGC) of a teaching hospital in the city. The study included 20 patients with 9 girls and 11 boys between the ages of 5-14 years. Results: This study comprised of 20 enuretic children, 9 girls and 11 boys, who attended Child Guidance Clinic of a major teaching hospital. Their ages ranged between 5 years to 14 years. In this study, the incidence of primary nocturnal enuresis was found to be 45%. The radiological abnormalities were found in a significant number of patients. Conclusion: There is a high incidence of urodynamic abnormalities in children with both nocturnal and diurnal enuresis as compared to the nocturnal enuresis alone. The pattern of abnormalities was however, not different.
