  • Intrinsic urethral sphincter deficiency (ISD) is a clinical entity that should be suspected in women with stress urinary incontinence. If it is not diagnosed prior to surgery, it poses a significant risk factor for repair failure. We propose a classification of ISD based on videofluorourodynamic (VFUD) and abdominal leak-point pressures. One hundred female patients with stress urinary incontinence due to ISD were included in this study. History and physical examination were performed on all… CONTINUE READING
