Introduction

•Air-charged (AC) and water-perfused (WP) catheters have been evaluated for differences in measuring pressures for voiding dysfunction.
•We believe that a single, dual catheter, and the same experience  clinician throughout the study will provide analogous point pressures for cough and valsalva movements in both AC and WP catheters when analyzed during cystometrogram (CMG).
