Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Thirty-two female patients affected by urinary incontinence were enrolled for rehabilitative treatment (functional electro-stimulation by vaginal electrode performed three times a week for one month followed by biofeedback performed three times a week for one month). Complete clinical and urodynamic studies, urethrocystography in order to allow Blaivas and Olsson radiologic evaluation were performed. Echography of the bladder and urine cultures were done too. Patients with severe urogenital prolaxus and obesity, neurologic urinary disorders and surgery for incontinence, were excluded. The same patients were urodynamically reassessed at the end of the treatment and a detailed clinical evaluation was obtained from each patient. 78% of patients reported a considerable improvement in clinical symptoms and only 9% reported no improvement. Urodynamic findings showed an increase of maximum cystometric capacity in 6 patients, improvement of maximum urethral closure pressure and/or functional profile length in 17 patients. Disappearance or reduction of involuntary detrusor contractions were found in 2 out of 6 patients with unstable bladder.
