Bladder-outlet obstruction (BOO) in women has become an increasingly recognized entity over the past several years. This is partly because of the greater number of anti-incontinence surgeries being performed, which caninfrequently result in iatrogenic obstruction; and partly because ofimprovements in the ability to diagnose and recognize BOO. In this review, the symptoms associated with BOO in women, and whether these symptoms can reliablypredict the presence of BOO, will be discussed. The incidence of BOO followingsurgical anti-incontinence procedures and the urodynamic diagnosis of BOO inwomen, detailing the various criteria that have been proposed, are also reviewed.
