Improving the management of urinary incontinence
Practitioner via PubMed
Urinary incontinence (UI) is the complaint of any involuntary loss of urine and is a common condition that is likely to be under-reported. In the UK, the prevalence is estimated to be 17-40%, and rates are higher in the elderly. UI is more common in women than men. Its frequency increases with age, parity, high BMI, and associated comorbidities. The common types are stress UI, overactive bladder (OAB) or urge UI, and mixed UI a combination of the two. In stress UI there is involuntary loss of urine that occurs in association with an increase in intra-abdominal pressure.

Investigation of central nervous system dysfunction in chronic pelvic pain using magnetic resonance spectroscopy and noninvasive brain stimulation
Pain Practice via PubMed
Recent studies demonstrate that chronic pelvic pain is associated with altered afferent sensory input resulting in maladaptive changes in the neural circuitry of pain. To better understand the central changes associated with chronic pelvic pain, we investigated the contributions of critical pain-related neural circuits using single-voxel proton magnetic resonance spectroscopy and transcranial direct current stimulation.
