Bladder outlet obstruction BOO in women is considered to be relatively uncommon. However; the actual incidence may be underestimated due to the wide spectrum of obstruction and its symptoms. It can represent an anatomic or functional disorder and can run the entire spectrum of symptoms. Because there are no accepted nomograms for obstruction in women; and there remains a misconception that women cannot be obstructed by many; an accurate diagnosis can be a challenge. This presentation will discuss the assessment and diagnosis of women with BOO. Urodynamic findings in these women and different treatment options will be discussed.
Discuss the history and physical exam of a female with bladder outlet obstruction BOO.
