What filling speed is used during cystometry in neurogenic patients?A. <10 mL/min
The filling rate during filling cystometry is important and determined by the patient undergoing urodynamic assessment (e.g., neuropathic versus non-neuropathic). Medium to fast fill during filling cystometry is described as 50–100 mL/min. In neuropathic bladders a slower fill of <20 mL/min is used. Fast filling in a neuropathic patient may lead to ‘artefactual’ detrusor contractions and reduced compliance.
