Introduction: The valsalva leak point pressure (VLPP) on urodynamic study (UDS) is measured to evaluate the severity and characteristic of incontinence. The aim of this study was to investigate the test-retest reliability of VLPP in female stress urinary incontinence (SUI).
Methods: Our study included 80 women who underwent UDS to evaluate SUI. The UDS was performed by a single operator consecutively within a 30 minutes period. Intra-class Correlation Coefficient (ICC) was used to investigate the test-retest reliability. All definitions of urinary incontinence corresponded to recommendations of the International Continence Society.
Results: The mean age was 58.9 ± 7.4 years. Among enrolled patients, 34 had only SUI; 46 patients had mixed urinary incontinence (MUI). The 32 patients had underline diseases such as diabetes mellitus (DM), cerebrovascular disease or spinal disease. Overall, test-retest reliability of VLPP on UDS is excellent (ICC 0.94, P < 0.01). When enrolled patients were divided into several groups by incontinence type and presence of underline diseases, test-retest reliability of VLPP is excellent in each group (ICC 0.96, P < 0.01 in a SUI group; ICC 0.93, P < 0.01 in a MUI group; ICC 0.95, P < 0.01 in a group without underline diseases; ICC 0.92, P < 0.01 in a group with underline diseases).
Conclusions: The test-retest reliability of urodynamic VLPP in female SUI is excellent regardless of comorbid factors such as MUI, DM, cerebrovascular disease or spinal disease. The VLPP on UDS is a reliable data in female SUI.
