Non-invasive test for bladder outlet obstruction launched

Posted May 19 2011 7:48pm

Men with bladder voiding disorders may benefit from a new, non-invasive diagnostic test which has been launched by urinary incontinence experts SRS Medical.

Poor urine flow may be caused by low bladder contractility, or it may be the result of bladder outlet obstruction due to an enlarged prostate. These obstructions can usually be treated, but complications may include bladder stones, kidney failure and urinary incontinence. SRS Medical has now unveiled its latest diagnostic system, the CT3000Plus Complete Urodynamics system, which can provide an accurate, non-invasive assessment of poor urine flow. The test enables bladder pressure to be measured and also features an electronic leak-point detector.

Kevin Connolly, chief executive officer of SRS Medical, commented: “Many men who have been reluctant to undergo the catheterisation necessary for conventional urodynamics can now be tested quickly and comfortably. We are proud to be part of such a significant advance in diagnostic technology.”

The product was launched at the annual conference of the American Urological Association and should be of interest to clinicians working in the field of urinary incontinence.
