Flexible Cystoscopy With Urodynamics
Urodynamics is a functional assessment of the lower urinary tract. It uses pressure monitors to help determine how your bladder fills and empties.
Prior to procedure
You do not need to have a full bladder or fast prior to the test. Please allow at least 3 hours from the time that you arrive.
When you arrive at the hospital a nurse will give you an oral antibiotic as a preventative or prophylaxis for infection, even though infection risk is very low.
A local anaesthetic (lignocaine) gel will be inserted into the urethra which will help minimise discomfort from insertion of the transducer catheters.
