Urinary stress incontinence

urinary stress incontinence

Urinary incontinence is defined as any involuntary leakage of urine that causes discomfort. There are several types of urinary incontinence:

  • Stress urinary incontinence: leaks occur during exercise (sports activities, coughing, laughing, sneezing, walking, changing position).
  • Mixed urinary incontinence: it combines leakage with exertion and leakage by urgent female urinary incontinence.

What is the cause of urinary stress incontinence?

It is the consequence:
  • A weakness of the perineal muscles (perineum: part of the body closing down the pelvis and crossed by the termination of the urinary tract, genitals and digestive) responsible for supporting the bladder and urethra.
  • Pregnancies and deliveries and later, tobacco, menopause and overweight.
  • A sphincter weakness of the urethra (muscle responsible for sealing the bladder).

What is the treatment of urinary stress incontinence?

- Perineal rehabilitation.

- Surgery with strips.

- Intraurethral injection of the filler.

- Laser treatment by vaginal route.

- Urethral injection of platelet-rich plasma.
