AbstractFollowing three noninferiority randomised controlled trials from different countries showing exactly the same results, it is time to translate this evidence into practice. In women undergoing primary surgery for pure stress urinary incontinence or stress-predominant mixed urinary incontinence without voiding difficulties, careful office evaluation including uroflowmetry and postvoid residual urine can replace invasive investigations such as cystometry, saving patients from embarrassment and a risk of urinary infection.
