Urethral pressure profile (UPP) and abdominal leak point pressure
(ALPP) have been used to assess sphincter mechanism of the urethra.
From different studies it is seen that abdominal leak point pressure
measurements are used frequently to evaluate urethral function in patient with stress incontinence.
Example of Intrinsic Sphincter Deficiency Note: cystometrogram demonstrating abdominal leak point pressure
test, showing Valsalva leak point pressure of 41 cm [H.sub.2]O (79 minus baseline [P.sub.ves] of 37) and cough leak point pressure of 27 cm [H.sub.2]O (64 minus baseline [P.sub.ves] of 37).
The mean abdominal leak point pressure
was 71 cm ±9 cm H[sub.2]O with no statistical significant differences between failures and cured/improved patients.
