We report on 32 women referred to our institution with incontinence or voiding dysfunction after an anti-incontinence operation. Our method of investigation included simultaneous pressure-flow-sphincter electromyography, and anteroposterior and lateral fluoroscopy. The patients were classified into 3 groups with respect to normal, hyporeflexive or hyperreflexive detrusor activity. The most common reasons for failure were improper surgical indications, suture misplacement and over correction of the vesicourethral angle.
