Fifty-one had stress urinary incontinency (SUI), 28 had bladder instability by clinical and urodynamic criteria, and 36 had mild or moderate pelvic relaxation without urinary pathology. More than 90% of the patients with SUI and no previous surgery had a positive Q-tip test, with 90% test sensitivity in this group. More than one-third of the patients with bladder instability and almost one-half of the patients with pelvic relaxation and no urinary… CONTINUE READING
