A study published in the online edition of New England Journal of Medicine suggests that conducting invasive bladder tests prior to incontinence surgeries in women is not necessary.

The study was conducted by researchers at University of California San Diego, School of Medicine and the Urinary Incontinence Treatment Network who compared the results of surgeries that were carried out after office checkups with preoperative checkups and on office checkups alone.

The researchers found that those surgeries that were carried out on office checkups alone were as successful as those carried after the combination of office and preoperative checkups.

"We wanted to know if invasive tests are really needed in women who have SUI, or if observation alone could achieve the same outcomes. The findings of our study argue that the tests provide no added benefit for surgical treatment success to patients", lead researcher Charles Nager, said.
