Abstract

Data reported in this study concern 56 women who were subjected, 1 and 6 months after delivery, to a perineal examination including, in addition to the functional evaluation of the levator ani muscles, the "Q-tip test". A positive Q-tip test is associated with a greater incidence of stress urinary incontinence, especially when, at the same time, the score for the functional evaluation of the levator ani muscles ("Perineal Testing") is inferior to 3. The results of this study seem to indicate a greater gravity and ventral extension of obstetric perineal injuries.
