Abstract

An ambulatory set-up is presented which comprises a simple armamentarium for management of women complaining of urinary stress incontinence. Since history appeared to be not sufficiently reliable for management of patients, diagnosis was based mainly on cystomanometry and radiology. Of 58 women who have completed at least six months of follow-up, 11 had been diagnosed as suffering from detrusor instability (DI) and 47 from genuine stress incontinence (SI). Treatment was medical in the former group and surgical in the latter. Significant or complete relief of symptoms was reported in 91% of the former group and in 81% in the latter.
