STUDY DESIGN: The retrospective analysis which includes 161 incontinent women wham evaluated with urodynamic investigation between 1990-2001 in Urology department of Cumhuriyet University, Faculty of Medicine was performed. RESULTS: A total of 161 incontinent women were investigated and 67 of 90 women with complaints of pure stress incontinence (74.5%) had genuine stress incontinence, 23 of 40 women with complaints of pure urge incontinence (57.5%) had detrusor instability, 13 of 31 women with complaints of mixed incontinence (41.9%) had mixed incontinence in urodynamic evaluation.
