Frailty Predicts Incident Urinary Incontinence Among Hospitalized Older Adults —A 1-Year Prospective Cohort Study

The relationship between frailty and urinary incontinence (UI) remains highly complex. There is limited data on the impact of frailty on new-onset UI among hospitalized older adults. Thus, we examined the ability of frailty to predict incident UI among them.

CONCLUSION: The evidence found shows that there may be superiority of the adjustable tapes versus the mid urethral tapes and other included treatments. However, a comparison to statistically corroborate this difference could not be made. These results should be confirmed with multicenter collaborative randomized clinical trials.

Urinary incontinence (UI) is commonly described as a condition involving involuntary loss of urine [1]. There are two main types: 1) stress urinary incontinence (SUI), in which involuntary urinary leakage occurs on physical effort; and 2) urge urinary incontinence (UUI), in which involuntary loss of urine is associated with urgency. Mixed urinary incontinence (MUI) designates the combination of SUI and UUI [1,2].

AbstractWe illustrate our experience of gathering patient insights on the most patient-relevant symptoms in chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) via a structured and systematic approach towards ‘patient-centric’ drug development, leveraging recent advances in digital technologies using online platforms. The four-step approach comprised the following: literature search, social media listening (SML) study, online bulletin board (OBB) exercise, and design of an online patient preference s tudy (PPS). The initial online studies (SML and OBB) revealed that, besides dyspnoea and exacerbations, patients percei...
