I just had a 47 year old female with urge incontinence. When would you consider urodynamic studies for this?

Neda F., MD -

Hi Jacob. Here's Dr. Heublein's response: "Recommendation is not to workup with urodynamics as the yield is very low. It is a choosing wisely recommendation: https://www.choosingwisely.org/clinician-lists/augs-uncomplicated-overactive-bladder-work-up/ exceptions may be in a patient with a known neurologic disorder (like MS) where you're trying to evaluate if there are multiple pathways leading to her incontinence, but in general first line therapies (behavioral modification, pelvic floor exercises, OAB medications) should be tried and if these fail consider referral to urology to discuss urodynamics. Urge incontinence can be used synonymously with over active bladder."
