Authors: Wu SJ, Xu YQ, Gao ZY, Wang ZP, Zhao F, Liu L, Wang S Abstract The aim of this work was to evaluate the efficacy and safety of botulinum toxin A (BTX-A) treatment in patients with neurogenic detrusor overactivity. PUBMED, EMBASE, and Cochrane Library were identified on 13 May 2017 to identify relevant randomized controlled trials. All data obtained were analyzed using Stata 12.0. Five randomized controlled trials were included in this study. Compared to placebo, the BTX-A groups had significantly fewer urinary incontinence (UI) episodes per day and per week (BTX-A with 300 U for frequency of UI per d...

This study investigated the effects of a low ‐frequency home‐based incontinence therapy device on quality of life (QoL) and urinary symptoms in women with urinary incontinence. From May 2017 to February 2018, 34 patients, aged ≥ 20 years, with involuntary urine leakage>2 times/week, were recruited to this study. Patients with severe pelvic organ prolapse, pregnancy, virgin status, and psychological problems were excluded. The incontinence home ‐care device treatments were administered in 12‐minute sessions, twice daily for 8 weeks. Simultaneously, hyperthermic conditions of 35°C to 40...
