Abstract

It was the aim of this study to evaluate critically the value of history in patients complaining of urinary stress incontinence. Diagnosis was established mainly by radiologic and cystomanometric assessment. History included 21 symptoms subdivided into various items. Only 3 symptoms were proven significant in distinguishing between various diagnostic groups. Assessment of stress incontinence should be regarded as incomplete without other means of evaluation in addition to history.
