Abstract

There is insufficient data to assess the effects of any of the different management strategies for recurrent or persistent stress urinary incontinence in women after failed interventional treatment. The evidence base lacks well-designed randomised trials with sufficient power to answer this hugely important issue. PURSUIT is the Proper Understanding of Recurrent Stress Urinary Incontinence Treatment study, assessing through randomisation whether endoscopic or surgical interventions achieve better cure and/or quality of life outcomes at 1 year, and will follow up to 3 years to see if responses are sustained. The manuscript provides an outline of the study, describes the challenges it has faced, and advocates the importance of ensuring its successful delivery.
