Material and methods: The study was performed between January and May 2017 on 64 patients aged between 40 and 65 years with complaints of mixed type incontinence. The patients were separated into two groups according to their urodynamic data. Translabial ultrasonography was performed in both groups.
Results: Mean age of the patients was 51.19±7.01 years, and mean body mass index was 26.69±2.02 kg/m2. The patients were separated into two groups as those with (n=33) or without (n=31) stress urinary incontinence based on urodynamic findings (despite the presence of mixed urinary incontinence complaints, stress urinary incontinence and detrusor overactivity associated with incontinence could not be detected in the urodynamic study). Average x descend, y descend and bladder neck mobilization values detected with translabial ultrasonography were found to be statistically significantly higher in the urodynamic stress incontinence group. There was an opposite-directional, 37.6% and a statistically significant relation between maximum cystometric capacity and x descend parameters. Y descend values and bladder neck mobilization of females with negative Q-tip test were found to be statistically significantly lower than females with a positive Q-tip test.
Conclusion: As a complementary examination tool in the evaluation of urinary incontinence translabial ultrasonography may become one of the main diagnostic evaluation tools in the future.
