Abstract

Despite technical and procedural advances in urodynamics over the past decade, the role of urodynamics in women with stress urinary incontinence (SUI) remains controversial. Many of these advancements have been the result of multicentric studies in the United States, such as the UITN and PFDN, which will be highlighted in this article. It appears to be the consensus that urodynamics may not be needed in pure stress incontinence. Urodynamics can be valuable in unmasking stress urinary incontinence in prolapse, although its impact on the ultimate management of occult incontinence remains debated. This article reviews the indications for urodynamic testing in women with SUI but will exclude more complex conditions such as mixed or recurrent incontinence which are outside the scope of this review.
