Aetiological factors in stress urinary incontinence in nulliparous women



Aetiological factors in stress urinary incontinence in nulliparous women



Journal of Obstetrics & Gynaecology 12(2): 130-132



The causes of stress urinary incontinence due to urethral sphincter incompetence, other than parity, were studied in a group of 26 nulliparous women undergoing colposuspension, and compared with a group of age-matched parous women also undergoing colposuspension. Pre- and postoperative clinical and urodynamic assessment was performed. Of the paired groups, 10 were premenopausal and 16 postmenopausal. There was a higher incidence of obesity in premenopausal nulliparous patients compared with the parous patients. There were no differences in the other factors causing raised intra-abdominal pressure, such as chronic cough and constipation, between the two groups. These factors are usually thought to contribute to the aetiology of stress incontinence.
