Urge Urinary Incontinence

Urge Incontinence


  • Based on the present knowledge pelvic floor muscle exercise should be the first choice of treatment for stress urinary incontinence.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Urogenital distress inventory short form (UDI-6) and Incontinence impact questionnaire short form (IIQ-7) of the Turkish Urogynecology and Pelvic Reconstructive Surgery Association were performed to each patient before and after treatment to evaluate[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]


  • In 1996, we described a 16-year-old South African male with recurrent bouts of gross hematuria, with a negative urological workup and a working diagnosis of IgA nephropathy [ 4 ].[karger.com]


  • OBJECTIVE: To compare the effectiveness of biofeedback-assisted behavioral treatment with drug treatment and a placebo control condition for the treatment of urge and mixed urinary incontinence in older community-dwelling women.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]


  • Also, it is unknown whether the benefits last after treatment stops. [8] Prognosis [ edit ] Many people with OAB symptoms had those symptoms subside within a year, with estimates as high as 39%, but most have symptoms for several years. [3] Epidemiology[en.wikipedia.org]
  • What Is the Prognosis of Urinary Incontinence? Urinary incontinence is a treatable condition with an excellent prognosis. Medical and surgical treatments for urinary incontinence can have very high cure rates.[emedicinehealth.com]


  • BACKGROUND/AIMS: The etiology of urge urinary incontinence is unknown. Pharmacological treatments are disappointing, since they are only slightly more effective than a placebo.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • […] factors include: Recurrent urinary tract infections Bladder symptoms (e.g., bed wetting) in childhood Constipation See also “Etiology” of urinary incontinence .[amboss.com]
  • Etiology The incidence of OAB varies depending on the population studied and the definition applied.[health.am]


  • We analyzed 700 Mexican-American men aged 75 and older from the fifth Wave (2004/5) of the Hispanic Established Population for the Epidemiologic Study of the Elderly.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • New evidence suggests an underlying pathophysiologic inflammatory process for urge urinary incontinence, and complementary therapies that address the psychoneuroimmunology component may improve the health and quality of life for the millions of women[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Pathophysiological mechanisms Male stress urinary incontinence The main pathophysiology behind SUI in men relates to underlying dysfunction of the urethral sphincter complex and/or change in urethral axis.[racgp.org.au]

  • Nonpharmacologic therapies improve bladder control by modifying lifestyle and behavior to prevent urine loss. This requires patient and caregiver motivation and can be time consuming.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Normally, contraction of the pelvic floor muscles compresses the urethra [bladder outlet] and prevents loss of urine when situations of raised intra-abdominal pressure occur thus preventing urine loss and stress incontinence (1).[menopause.org.au]
  • Prevention In most cases no one is quite sure of the cause of OAB or urge urinary incontinence. A strong pelvic floor muscle contraction during urgency can suppress an involuntary bladder contraction and prevent urine from leaking.[simonfoundation.org]
  • […] to prevent constipation, a risk factor for urinary incontinence Avoidance of bladder irritants such as alcohol and caffeine Staying physically active.[advanced-trainings.com]
