OBJECTIVE: Our purpose was to determine whether the urinary incontinence (UI) score is significantly useful in evaluating the clinical status of UI. METHOD: The questionnaire was administered to 198 UI patients (27-73 years of age) diagnosed by conventional procedures. It consisted of 15 questions, and the answers were assigned points divided into a stress score (s-s) and urge score (u-s) according to severity. RESULTS: The patients were classified into a stress incontinence group (SI; 125 cases), urge incontinence group (URI; 29 cases), mixed incontinence group (MI; 41 cases), and overflow incontinence group (3 cases). Classification by questionnaire yielded 110 SI cases, 31 URI cases, and 46 MI cases, accuracy of 83.2%, 86.2%, and 61.0%, respectively. A significant correlation was observed with s-s of SI (r = 0.669, P < 0.001) and u-s of URI (r = 0.583, P < 0.005). CONCLUSION: The UI score will be a simple, clinically effective diagnostic procedure for UI for use by general gynecologists.
