Helfand et al present data on urinary incontinence on 477 men taking part in the LURN study. Post-void dribbling occurred in 41% of the men with 29% reporting urge urinary incontinence. Overall 51% subjects reported urinary incontinence. Erectile dysfunction, depression and anxiety scores were also associated with urinary incontinence. Significant predictors of urinary incontinence were age, race, sleep apnea and clinical site. This important study demonstrates a higher than expected incidence of male incontinence.
