Urethral diverticula in women are associated with increased urethra-sphincter complex volumes: A potential role for high-tone nonrelaxing sphincter in their etiology?

Neurourol Urodyn 2019 09 6;38(7):1859-1865. Epub 2019 Jul 6.

Department of Urology, UCLH at Westmoreland Street, London, UK.

Aims: Functional obstruction secondary to a high-tone nonrelaxing sphincter (HTNRS) may lead to the formation of a proximal-to-mid-urethral diverticulum (pmUD) in patients without a history of anatomical obstruction, vaginal delivery, vaginal and/or urethral surgery, or periurethral gland infection, that is, a functional pmUD (fpmUD). We used measurements of the urethra-sphincter complex volume (USCv) as a proxy for the maximal urethral closure pressure to evaluate this potential etiological factor.

Methods: We compared 17 consecutive women with fpmUD (mean age ± SD of 49. Read More
