Abstract: Urethral electrical conductance was recorded throughout a standard exercise test in a group of 40 women with known urinary incontinence. Analysis of the results has shown it to be of little diagnostic value (sensitivity = 33%). It is, however, a sensitive means of detecting leakage (sensitivity = 97%), and a comparison of the total change in conductance during the exercise test with weighed perineal pads shows this parameter to be a reasonable index of the severity of leakage.
