The study hypothesis is that patients who under go cutting the filum terminale - the string-like lower end of the spinal cord - will have improved bladder function at 6-month follow up. Bladder function and its effects on quality of life will be measured before surgery and at 6-month follow up.


Inclusion Criteria: - Primary or secondary daytime urinary incontinence, persistent over at least 6 months of medical treatment. - Abnormal urodynamic testing - Normal conus on magnetic resonance imaging of the spine - Dysfunctional Voiding Symptom Scale score greater than 6 for girls or greater than 9 for boys Exclusion Criteria: - Bladder outlet obstruction - Bladder atony - Congenital anorectal malformation - Additional diagnoses independently associated with neurogenic bladder dysfunction - Encephalopathy precluding reasonable expectation of attainment of continence - Inability to comply with medical management - Unwillingness to comply with initial or follow up urodynamic testing
