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.

For 22 years, the world's largest pure-play medical device company was the only player in sacral neuromodulation, a space that addresses urinary problems as well as fecal incontinence. Now there's a new kid on the block, which has created quite an intense David vs. Goliath medtech story. For those unfamiliar with the Axonics vs. Medtronic story up to this point, click here for a quick rundown of recent events that have transpired in this market.   FDA Approves Second Indication for Axonics r-SNM FDA approved the urinary indications for an implantable rechargeable sacral neuro...

Abstract BACKGROUND AND AIMS: Cardiac loops have been used extensively to study myocardial function. With changes in cardiac pump function, loops are shifted to the right or left. Functional luminal imaging probe (FLIP) recordings allow for loop analysis of anal sphincter and puborectalis (PRM) function. The goal was to characterize anal sphincter area-pressure/tension loop changes in fecal incontinence (FI) patients. METHODS: 14 healthy subjects and 14 patients with FI were studied. Custom-designed FLIP was placed in the vagina and then in the anal canal, and deflated in 20ml steps, from 90-30ml. At each vol...

Hernández-Martínez Despite abundant literature on antenatal and delivery care received by pregnant women, there is a wide knowledge gap on the prevalence of symptoms of discomfort or problems during the postpartum period and their relationship with the mode of delivery. This cross-sectional study, carried out with 3324 participants in Spain in 2017, aimed to investigate the association between the mode of delivery and self-reported postpartum symptoms of discomfort and maternal problems during the puerperium. An ad hoc online questionnaire was used to collect data on socio-demographic and obstetric var...

ConclusionIn clinical routine severe complications occurred in 1%. The latter were unrelated to pectopexy, but occurred due to concomitant procedures or adhesions. The overall operating time as well as the operating time for pectopexy were similar to those reported in published studies on sacrocolpopexy.

Publication date: Available online 14 November 2019Source: Sensors and Actuators B: ChemicalAuthor(s): Xuecheng He, Quanbing Pei, Tailin Xu, Xueji ZhangAbstractRecent advances in biofluids monitoring have positioned urine as a non-invasive candidate for clinical diagnosis. In this paper, we employ adhesive tapes with indicator-functionalized microarrays for rapid urinalysis. Such tape-based sensor combines advantages of flexibility, adhesive and waterproof functionality in a platform, which is simply prepared by physical punching, fabrics filling and indicators modification. The simulated urine flow can be captured and pen...
