A prospective analysis of 166 women with genuine stress incontinence was performed comparing Valsalva leak-point pressure (VLPP) and maximum urethral closure pressure (MUCP) with age, previous urogynecologic surgery and/or hysterectomy, poor urethral mobility, weight, menopause and vaginal deliveries, to find correlations with intrinsic sphincter deficiency (ISD). Cut-off value for VLPP were 60 cmH2O and for MUCP 30 cmH2O. MUCP ≤30 cmH2O identifies a group of patients with more severe… CONTINUE READING
