SALAZAR-GONZALEZ, Alejandra  and  ECHAVARRIA-RESTREPO, Luis Guillermo. Intrinsic sphincter dysfunction: What is the role of urethral hypermobility in management?. Rev Colomb Obstet Ginecol [online]. 2014, vol.65, n.1, pp.75-78. ISSN 0034-7434.

Objective: To reflect on the importance of diagnosing urethral hypermobility in the surgical management of intrinsic urethral sphincter dysfunction, and on the assessment of hypermobility carried out in the studies that have evaluated the different techniques used for addressing the problem. Conclusion: Only a few studies in patients diagnosed with intrinsic sphincter dysfunction have evaluated cure rates and percentage of post-operative complications in patients taken to surgery with TVT and TOT slings, taking into account the presence or absence of urethral hypermobility.

Keywords : Stress urinary incontinence; urethra; urodynamics; suburethral sling.
