Background. Stress urinary incontinence (SUI) is a common problem of multifactorial origin. Some authors have claimed that it has a familial predisposition. This study was undertaken to investigate the prevalence of SUI among first-degree relatives of 154 women who had been operated on for this disorder and of 100 women without SUI.
