Does epidural anesthesia influence pelvic floor muscle endurance and strength and the prevalence of urinary incontinence 6 weeks postpartum?
ConclusionsPFM function and UI prevalence at 6 weeks postpartum are not significantly affected by epidural analgesia.
This study analyzed data for 16,181 individuals with stroke and 16,181 without stroke. Within 10 years of the index date, 22% and 11% of men with and without stroke received a diagnosis of urinary incontinence (log-rank p
Objectives: Colon manometry (CM) has emerged as a tool to evaluate children with defecation problems. Our aim was to evaluate the utility of CM in guiding therapy and predicting surgery in pediatric constipation. Methods: Retrospective review of children undergoing CM for 4 indications: constipation, fecal incontinence, postsurgical evaluation and chronic intestinal pseudo-obstruction. Variables included age, sex, follow-up, and CM parameters: gastrocolonic response (GC) and quality/quantity of high-amplitude propagating contractions (HAPCs). Interventions: medical, surgical or no intervention. Outcomes: response to c...

Nature Reviews Urology, Published online: 23 January 2020; doi:10.1038/s41585-019-0273-4Urethral injection of bulking agents or stem cell formulations are minimally invasive approaches to stress urinary incontinence. Hillary and colleagues summarize data on the efficacy and safety of bulking agents compared with conventional treatments, and discuss current knowledge of the use of stem cell formulations and acellular, stimulatory injection-based therapies for the treatment of this disorder.

ConclusionsThe PRR in studies of OAB is varied and significant. It is clear that it can be affected by factors in study design including type of bladder diary. When designing clinical studies this should be borne in mind. Equally, when attempting to optimise patient care, the benefit of the therapeutic encounter should be remembered.

ConclusionsOlder homeless adults fall frequently. Likely contributors include having a high prevalence of conditions that increase the risk of falls, compounded by heightened exposure to unsafe environments. Fall prevention in this population should target those at highest risk and address modifiable environmental conditions. Providing shelter or housing and addressing substance use could reduce morbidity from falls in homeless older adults.
