FPMRS NEWSBRIEFS


Urge incontinence therapy may relieve stress incontinence
News-Medical.net
Anticholinergic medication appears to be effective as a treatment for stress and mixed urinary incontinence, results of a small clinical trial indicate. The study authors say they believe the treatment works by increasing urethral closing pressure without increasing blood levels of catecholamines. Anticholinergic agents are already used to treat urge incontinence, where they act by reducing bladder hypersensitivity, and in a recent animal study were found to elevate urethral closing pressure.
