Figure F2 is a forest plot diagram depicting sensitivity of symptoms of stress incontinence compared to multichannel urodynamics (“gold standard”) for any stress UI. The data came from 27 studies. The plot has two columns. The left-hand column lists the last name of the first author for each study and the year of publication. The right-hand column is a plot of sensitivity as percentage with 95% CI of patients with urodynamic stress UI who had symptoms of stress incontinence. Pooled with random effects model mean sensitivity is presented by a square incorporating confidence intervals represented by horizontal lines. The figure demonstrates that, on average, 93% (95% CI 90; 95) of women with symptoms of stress UI have positive urodynamic diagnosis of stress UI.
