Assessment of the Internal Urethral Sphincter and the Vagina by Three Dimensional Ultrasound
This trial is active, not recruiting.
|Condition||urinary incontinence due to urethral sphincter incompetence|
|Sponsor||Ain Shams University|
|Start date||May 2014|
|End date||May 2014|
|Trial size||140 participants|
|Trial identifier||NCT02139956, mekky|
Continent women have an intact internal urethral sphincter that extends from the bladder neck down to the perineal membrane. The internal urethral sphincter is a strong collagen muscle tissue cylinder lined by urothelium. On ultrasound scanning tissue echo will be detected torn internal urethral sphincter will not stand sudden rise of abdominal pressure. Three dimensional ultrasound assessment of the internal urethral sphincter is very sensitive and specific for the diagnosis of stress urinary incontinence.
|Observational model||case control|
group 1 women with stress urinary incontinence by ultrasonography
group 2 women without stress urinary incontinence by ultrasonography
evaluation of the internal urethral sphincter and assesst the extend and degree of the torn internal urethral sphincter
time frame: 6 month
Female participants of any age.
Inclusion Criteria: - signed an informed consent - patient with stress urinary incontinence - patient have done a vaginal delivery - patient with genital prolapse Exclusion Criteria: - refusal to sign an informed consent - patient have urinary tract infection - patient with pregnancy - patient have vaginal infection - patient who has undiagnosed vaginal bleeding
|Official title||Ultrasonic Assessment of the Urethra and the Vagina in Normal Continent Women and Women Suffering From Stress Urinary Incontinence|
|Description||The internal urethral sphincter used to be said it's a muscular ring but the investigators will visualize by three dimensional ultrasound it's a cylinder in shape and it's the cause of stress urinary incontinence by being torn by stretching the vagina during normal delivery.|
