Figure F24 is a forest plot diagram depicting sensitivity of urge symptoms compared to clinical diagnosis for pure detrusor overactivity. The data came from 2 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 urge symptoms and with clinical diagnosis of pure detrusor overactivity. Pooled with random effects model mean sensitivity is presented by a square incorporating confidence intervals represented by horizontal lines. Figure demonstrates that in average, 70% (95%CI 43; 88 %) of women with urge symptoms have clinical diagnosis of pure detrusor overactivity.
