PMID:  19962738     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
The paper provides a systematization of the scientific evidence on quality of life of patients affected by urinary incontinence (UI) and overactive bladder (OAB) through a systematic literature review. A single search strategy was performed through the databases and papers collected are reviewed by independent researchers finally, including 39 papers. A strong heterogeneity of studies emerged from the evidence. The multidimensionality of the consequences produced by UI and OAB increased the attention on the identification of the most affected dimension of life quality (i.e. physical, emotional) and on the attempt of predicting life quality impairment through specific variables.
