Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The main goal of the paper series launched through this issue of our journal is to solicit contributions from everywhere on urodynamic subjects that might be unclear and/or hardly debated in the literature - that is, on "hidden" points. These need only be recalled and briefly but thoroughly elucidated, possibly with no drums or trumpets. To this purpose, even a urodynamicist living in the country may work well, provided he/she has some interest in the matter treated. This first article deals with the lack of attention payed to urethral elasticity by the Schäfer model of micturition (1). There are many other "hidden" points, however, which should hopefully be re-discussed. Whoever wants to participate, his/her contribution will be welcomed.
