Figure F4 is a forest plot diagram depicting sensitivity of urge symptoms compared to multichannel urodynamics (“gold standard”) for any detrusor overactivity. The data came from 23 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 the publication. The right-hand column is a plot of sensitivity as percentage with 95% CI of the subjects with symptoms of urgency UI and positive urodynamic diagnosis of detrusor overactivity. 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, 82% (95% CI 76; 87%) of women with symptoms of urgency UI have a positive urodynamic test of detrusor overactivity.
