Although pelvic floor muscle training (PFMT) is an option for female mixed incontinence (MUI), the role of PFMT prior to midurethral sling (MUS) surgery is not well defined. We hypothesize that preoperative PFMT (pretraining) positively impacts urinary storage and voiding symptoms prior to retropubic MUS.
Population-level data are lacking for urinary incontinence (UI) in Central and Eastern European countries. Therefore, the objective of this study was to estimate the prevalence, bother, and behavior regarding treatment for UI in a population-representative group of Polish adults aged ≥ 40 years.
To evaluate the safety and efficacy of the eCoin® - a nickel-sized, primary battery-powered, neuromodulation device for the treatment of urgency urinary incontinence which is implanted in the lower leg in a 20-minute procedure under local anesthesia.
Urinary incontinence is a syndrome common in older adults, but it is not clear whether urinary incontinence is associated with the risk for mortality in elderly nursing home residents.
We conducted a systematic review and meta-analysis in PubMed, Cochrane, Embase, the Cumulative Index to Nursing and Allied Health Literature (CINAHL), and Web of Science databases.
To compare continence outcomes and health-related quality of life (HRQOL) among women with limited activity restrictions vs. traditional restrictions following mid-urethral sling (MUS) surgery.
Thirty-six women who underwent MUS surgery were randomized: 1) the Restrictions group was given traditional postoperative restrictions for six weeks while 2) the Limited Restrictions group was instructed to resume normal activities other than pelvic rest.
Genome-wide association studies (GWAS) have not identified replicable genetic risk loci for stress or urgency urinary incontinence.
We carried out a discovery stage case control GWAS in three independent discovery cohorts of European women (n=8,979) for stress incontinence, urgency incontinence, and any incontinence phenotypes.
Several studies have shown that physical activity (PA) levels and sedentary behaviour (SB) are independent risk factors for many health-related issues. However, there is scarce evidence supporting the relationship between SB and urinary incontinence (UI) in community-dwelling older adults, and no information on any possible association in institutionalised older adults.
There is scarce evidence of anatomical risk factors that might affect long-term post-prostatectomy incontinence (PPI) in patients undergoing robot-assisted laparoscopic prostatectomy (RALP). This systematic review aims to identify anatomical measurements in preoperative magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) that might be associated with increased risk of urinary incontinence (UI) 1 year after RALP.
To review the evolution of female continence surgical practice in Australia over the last 20 years and observe whether vaginal mesh controversies impacted these trends.
From January 2000 to December 2019, medicare benefit schedule codes for female continence procedures were identified and extracted for: mesh sling, fascial sling, bulking agent, female urethral prosthesis, colposuspension, and removal of sling.
