Urethral instability is still evolving as a clinical entity. Using pressure variation of 15 cm water or more at the point of maximum urethral pressure (MUP), urethral pressure profilometry on patients referred for urodynamic assessment for lower urinary tract symptoms revealed urethral instability in 6.4% of 608 patients. The close association between urethral and detrusor instability was noted. Urethral instability appears to be a cause of frequency and urgency of micturition, and its presence increase the risk of urinary incontinence.
