Abstract

The pressure increase is thought to be a consequence of a posterior positional change in the bladder during filling die to decreased pelvic floor support in MMC. This pressure alteration was more obvious with increased bladder capacity. Urodynamic studies of children with MMC should be carefully evaluated for the presence of this phenomenon to prevent low measurement of the detrusor pressure, compliance and detrusor leak point pressure values.
