Relevance of urethral pressure profile to diagnosis of stress incontinence

Relevance of urethral pressure profile to diagnosis of stress incontinence

Zentralblatt für Gynakologie 103(22): 1348-1356

Reference is made to the relevance of urethral pressure profile and its parameters, on the basis of urethrocystometric checks of 34 control patients and of another 44 women who had had to undergo surgery for urinary incontinence. In cases of urinary stress incontinence, values prior to surgical treatment generally were lower, but some of the parameters were (statistically insignificantly) enhanced by the operation. - The conclusion is that the urethral pressure profile at rest and under stress (with coughing provoked) provides a more consistent indication of surgery. Yet, accurate diagnosis is not possible on the basis of such examination alone.
