Abstract

This paper reports on the currently available information regarding urethral dysfunction as presented during the scientific session of the 2006 Society for Urodynamics and Female Urology meeting in Atlanta, GA. Anatomic studies of the urethral sphincter complex contribute to our understanding of the continence mechanism, particularly as it relates to sex differences and the effect of androgens. It is important to understand biomechanical concepts of load and stress as they relate to the demonstration of incontinence on urodynamic studies. Urethral imaging complements our ability to accurately diagnose clinical problems. The pharmacologic components of urethral pressure are also discussed. Continued advances in our understanding of urethral dysfunction will guide improved diagnosis and treatment of these disorders.
