INTRODUCTION AND HYPOTHESIS: Development of a model that can predict in which group of women pre-operative urodynamics can be safely omitted. METHODS: Three hundred and eighty-one uncomplicated women who underwent pre-operative urodynamics were evaluated. A multivariate logistic regression model was developed based on medical history and physical examination predicting a high probability group of women with detrusor overactivity or a low (<20 cm H2O) mean urethral closure pressure and, therefore, are likely to benefit from urodynamics. RESULTS: Women are likely to benefit from pre-operative urodynamics if they (1) are 53 years of age or older or (2) have a history of prior incontinence surgery and are at least 29 years of age or (3) have nocturia complaints and are at least 36 years of age. CONCLUSION: If urogynaecologists omitted pre-operative urodynamics in women in the low probability group, in our population, pre-operative urodynamics would be reduced by 29%
