A probe which permits continuous measurement of the related values of pressure and cross-sectional area in the female urethra was used for a quantitative description of the adjunctive closure forces in terms of pressure and power generation during coughing and squeezing in 30 females with genuine stress incontinence (GSI). Measurements were performed at the bladder neck, midurethrally and distally in the urethra. A statistically significant decrease in power generation was found at the bladder… CONTINUE READING
