FELDNER JR, Paulo Cezar et al. Clinical and subsidiary diagnosis of urinary incontinence. Rev. Bras. Ginecol. Obstet. [online]. 2006, vol.28, n.1, pp. 54-62. ISSN 0100-7203. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0100-72032006000100010.
Female lower urinary tract symptoms are nonspecific and a clinical evaluation is required to establish the correct diagnosis. Such evaluation should consist of a structured micturition history or questionnaire, physical examination, micturition diary, pad test, and urodynamic evaluation. Urodynamic investigation was developed as an extension of patient history and physical examination in order to reveal the etiology of the patient's complaints. The goal of the present article is to review clinical and subsidiary diagnosis of urinary incontinence.
