During the thirty third French College of Gynaecologists and Obstetricians (CNGOF) meeting, guidelines for good clinical practice (RPC) defined by the French High Authority for Health (HAS) were exposed about diagnosis and management of adult female urinary incontinence without any neurological pathology and, particularly with stress urinary incontinence. Guidelines had been established by a multidisciplinary committee’s work, directed by B Jacquetin, X Fritel, and A Fauconnier.1 Methods, texts by the expert authors, synthesis of recommendations have already been published in French in a special number of the CNGOF journal. The intention of the French College of Gynaecologists and Obstetricians (CNGOF) was to improve previous recommandations, which had already been drawn up by several scientific societies, and by this way, to be complementary to these previous undertakings. This article is a summary of the French recommandations, and its aim is to give readers a clinical approach, and help them in their current and usual practices.
