Objectives: We evaluated with urodynamic studies the bladder function of adolescents and adults who had primary nocturnal enuresis (PNE) since early childhood.
Materials and Methods: 36 patients (11 males and 25 females), with PNE complaints were included in the study. We recruited all patients older than 12 (mean age: 17,2 years) who presented to our clinic with persistent enuretic symptoms since early childhood. A detailed history and physical examination were performed on all patients (at the first consultation) to document enuretic and other urinary symptoms
and previous treatments. Detailed enuretic diary (to document the number of wet nights a week), uroşowmetry, cystometry, pressure şow study and ultrasonography of the urinary tract were also routinely performed to rule out any anatomical anomalies of the urinary tract as well as to assess the functional bladder capacity and emptying efficiency for every patient. For statistical evaluation, we used repetitive Pillias Trace Test.
Results: 14 patients had mild (
