Paideia International Hospital has an integrated diagnostic and surgical urogynaecology unit. The focus is on the urogenital system, the pelvic floor muscles and the female perineum. In these areas, which involve the reproductive system, the urinary tract, the gastrointestinal tract, the pelvic floor muscles and the nerves, certain pathologies and disorders can develop due to a variety of different causes, which can have a negative and disabling effect on the quality of life. Today, it is possible to treat these issues as long as the diagnosis is carried out accurately thanks also to new-generation specialist equipment.
At Paideia International Hospital you can find rehabilitation services for treating disabilities resulting from diseases of the nervous system and musculoskeletal system, according to an integrated therapeutic approach.
The pathologies and disorders treated at the urogynaecology unit:
Diagnostic tests at the urogynaecology unit:
Complete Urodynamic Test
The minimally invasive urodynamic test examines the function of the lower urinary tract (bladder, urethra) during bladder filling and emptying. It provides information, insights and clarifications on symptoms and pathologies such as stress and urge urinary incontinence, obstructive pathologies, hyperactivity dysfunction or hypocontractility of the bladder muscle (detrusor).
Urethrocystoscopy is an endoscopic examination and is useful in evaluating the bladder mucosa, investigating various types of incontinence, in bacterial or chronic cystitis and to rule out the presence of bladder neoformations.
Pelvic floor ultrasound
3D ultrasound examination of the intra-abdominal organs (bladder, uterus, ovaries, rectum), visualising the various pelvic compartments in relation to the supporting structures, providing indications on how to manage the various pelvic pathologies.
Radiological examination used to assess urination in cases of post-surgery complications and urinary dysfunction.
Non-invasive MRI for the morphological and functional study of the organs and sphincter muscles of the pelvis involved in defecation.
Useful for assessing the contractile strength of the muscles surrounding the anus and rectum in relation to faecal continence and evacuation.
CT urography with/without contrast medium
Radio diagnostic examination for assessing the upper and lower urinary tract.
