Prediction of Postoperative Urinary Retention in a Large Integrated Health SystemPostoperative urinary retention (POUR) is the inability to void despite a full bladder following a surgical procedure. POUR can result in painful catherization, increased patient distress, increased postoperative hospital stay, urinary tract infections, detrusor muscle dysfunction, and cardiac arrhythmias. This research will lead to the development of a preoperative tool that can risk stratify patients based on risk factors for POUR and help providers develop a care plan to reduce patients' risk.
