Method:This study was conducted in the department of Obst amd Gynec, SMIMER, Surat from May2010 to december2012. Non pregnant patients demonstrating SUI with full bladder were included in the study. Total 40 patients were studied. Observation: Out of 40 cases 32 (80%) cases belonged to the age group of 40 to 59 years, 22 (55%) were in peri-menopausal age group and the median parity of the patients was 3. Other important observation was that 29(54.7%) patients had associated utero-vaginal prolapse with SUI and maximum had third degree prolapsed. Both non-surgical and surgical treatment was offered to patients with good results.
