Pelvic floor muscle training for female stress urinary incontinence: a randomised control trial comparing home and outpatient training.

Summary of "Pelvic floor muscle training for female stress urinary incontinence: a randomised control trial comparing home and outpatient training."

In the literature, it is suggested that supervised pelvic floor muscle training (PFMT) might be the first option treatment for female stress urinary incontinence (SUI). However, inadequate accessibility to health care and scarce individual resources may prevent adherence to the treatment. Our study is aimed at comparing the efficacy of performing PFMT in an outpatient clinic and at home in Brazilian incontinent women, and to verify if home PFMT may be an alternative to those not able to attend the outpatient sessions.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Abnormal descent of a pelvic organ resulting in the protrusion of the organ beyond its normal anatomical confines. Symptoms often include vaginal discomfort, DYSPAREUNIA; URINARY STRESS INCONTINENCE; and FECAL INCONTINENCE.

Involuntary loss of URINE, such as leaking of urine. It is a symptom of various underlying pathological processes. Major types of incontinence include URINARY URGE INCONTINENCE and URINARY STRESS INCONTINENCE.

Injury, weakening, or PROLAPSE of the pelvic muscles, surrounding connective tissues or ligaments (PELVIC FLOOR).

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.

An ANTIMUSCARINIC AGENT selective for the MUSCARINIC RECEPTORS of the BLADDER that is used in the treatment of URINARY INCONTINENCE and URINARY URGE INCONTINENCE.
