Pelvic Floor Muscle Training(PFMT) on Lower Urinary Tract Symptoms (LUTS) in Men With Stroke
The aim of this study is to evaluate the effect of pelvic floor muscle training (PFMT) on Lower Urinary Tract Symptoms (LUTS) in men after stroke.
120 men with LUTS or increased LUTS after stroke is included and randomized into a treatment group or a control group. The subjects in the treatment group follows a 12 week standard PFMT program, while the control group is not given specific treatment of their LUTS but like the treatment group follows the standard rehabilitation program for stroke patient. Outcome are measured by
- 5 questionnaires
- Voiding diary
- 24-hour pad test
- pelvic floor muscle assessment test

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions
Soft tissue formed mainly by the pelvic diaphragm, which is composed of the two levator ani and two coccygeus muscles. The pelvic diaphragm lies just below the pelvic aperture (outlet) and separates the pelvic cavity from the PERINEUM. It extends between the PUBIC BONE anteriorly and the COCCYX posteriorly.
Inflammation of the parametrium, the connective tissue of the pelvic floor, extending from the subserous coat of the uterus laterally between the layers of the BROAD LIGAMENT.
Financial support for training including both student stipends and loans and training grants to institutions.
The part of the pelvis, inferior to the pelvic brim, that comprises both the pelvic cavity and the part of the PERINEUM lying inferior to the PELVIC DIAPHRAGM.
Piriformis Muscle Syndrome
A chronic PELVIC PAIN characterized by pain deep in the buttock that may radiate to posterior aspects of the leg. It is caused by the piriformis muscle compressing or irritating the SCIATIC NERVE due to trauma, hypertrophy, inflammation or anatomic variations.

The aim of this study is to evaluate the effect of pelvic floor muscle training in the treatment of urinary incontinence after radical prostatectomy.
PURPOSE: The impact of pelvic floor muscle training on the recovery of urinary continence after radical prostatectomy is still controversial. We tested the effectiveness of biofeedback-pelvic floor mu...
