Accurate assessment of women with urinary incontinence may be complex; symptoms do not correlate well with functional abnormalities, and often several lower urinary tract symptoms or conditions may coexist. It is therefore essential that a thorough history, clinical examination and evaluation of the patient’s perception of their condition is undertaken. In uncomplicated cases, conservative therapy may be undertaken before invasive investigations. If this fails urodynamic investigation allows a definitive diagnosis and management plan in most cases. Investigators and clinicians need to be aware of artefacts and limitations to which their investigations are prone.
