Abstract

The faster puller speed has improved agreement between vector profiles, which is most marked during active contraction. The 8-channel catheters have the greatest agreement between profiles. There is variation in values between automated manometry and the stationary pull through technique. The improved repeatability in automated VVM for healthy controls should improve its diagnostic utility in patients with incontinence.
