Effectiveness of Pelvic Floor Muscle and Abdominal Training in Women With Stress Urinary Incontinence

2018-01-24 12:29:12 | BioPortfolio

Summary

The aim of this study was to investigate the effectiveness of pelvic floor muscle and abdominal training in reproductive-age patients with stress urinary incontinence.

This prospective randomized controlled design study included 64 female patients aged 18-49 years with stress urinary incontinence. The patients were divided into 2 groups (32 PFMT "Pelvic Floor Muscle Training" and 32 PFMT+AT "Abdominal Training") by computer-based randomization. The stress urinary incontinence type was assessed by a stress test, and the pelvic floor muscle strength was measured with a home biofeedback device. Voiding functions were assessed by a 3-day voiding diary and uroflowmetric test. The UDI-6 scale was used to assess the urinary symptoms, and the IIQ-7 scale was used to assess the quality of life. The follow-up measurements of both groups were obtained in the 0th, 4th, and 8th weeks.

The follow-up measurements of both groups were obtained in the 0th, 4th, and 8th weeks.

Participation of 29 patients from each group in the study was determined as sufficient to test the two-way hypothesis, with an effect size of 0.75, with an alpha level of 0.05, and with a power of 80%. However, 32 patients from each group were included as a precaution against possible missing data.

These women were randomly divided into the PFMT+AT (n=32) and PFMT (n=32) groups using a computer based randomization scheme. The data were collected from both groups at the 0th, 4th, and 8th weeks.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

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.

The region in the abdomen extending from the thoracic DIAPHRAGM to the plane of the superior pelvic aperture (pelvic inlet). The abdominal cavity contains the PERITONEUM and abdominal VISCERA, as well as the extraperitoneal space which includes the RETROPERITONEAL SPACE.

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.

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.
