    The Effect of Genital Prolapse
    on Voiding,

    They
    found that women with grade 3 or 4 cystocele more
    commonly had urethral hypermobility and symptoms of
    voiding difficulty. 
    Urodynamics showed bladder outlet obstruction
    in 4% with grade 1 or 2 cystocele and 58% with grade 3
    or 4 cystocele.

         

    Ring
    pessary reduction of prolapse during urodynamics is
    useful in determining symptomatic and occult
    conditions in women with severe prolapse.

         

    Urinary
    incontinence may be masked by prolapsed bladder and
    kinked urethra and it is important to predict
    sphincter weakness, and “occult
    incontinence” before operations for pelvic
    relaxation.
