(Medical College of Georgia at Augusta University) A low-cost, noninvasive treatment that uses the power of the magnet to stimulate and heal nerves key to bowel control is under study for the disabling and common problem of stool leakage, or fecal incontinence.
As a result of the vaginal mesh controversy, surgeons are performing more nonmesh, autologous fascia pubovaginal slings to treat stress urinary incontinence in women. The rectus abdominis fascia is the most commonly harvested site for autologous pubovaginal slings, so it is crucial that surgeons are familiar with the relationship between this graft harvest site and the ilioinguinal and iliohypogastric nerves, which can be injured during this procedure.
Compared to healthy peers, the prevalence of urinary incontinence (UI) is greater in males and females with respiratory disease, but the trajectory of UI and relationship with respiratory symptoms is unknown following lung transplantation (LTx). Aim: Prospective questionnaire study aimed to investigate the prevalence and association with coughing of urinary incontinence before and after LTx.
AbstractThis post hoc Poisson regression analysis investigated the relationship between mean volume voided and incontinence episodes/24 h after fixed frequency adjustment in children with overactive bladder from the LION study, a phase 3, double-blind, randomised, placebo-controlled, sequential, dose-titration solifenacin trial. Patients were aged 5–
The four major categories that most caregivers fit into are people who have loved ones living in assisted living, nursing homes or other facilities; caregivers who have older parents or others living in their own homes; those who have an elder living with them (or who live in the elder’s home); and caregivers for younger adults, often our children who have special challenges with health and/or cognition. Our status as caregivers hasn't changed, yet circumstances have dramatically changed how we are able to provide care. This is the grim reality that caregivers are forced to accept. I can't change that for anyone...
This study aimed to investigate the prevalence of self-reported main pelvic floor disorders (PFD) (urinary incontinence [UI], pelvic organ prolapse [POP], and fecal incontinence [FI]) and its associated factors in women with premature ovarian insufficiency (POI) and a control group. Methods: This was a cross-sectional study wherein two groups were interviewed from August, 2017 to November, 2018—women with POI (n = 150) and a control group matched for age and body weight (n = 150). Sociodemographic variables and two questionnaires validated in Brazilian Portuguese language for PFD (Kings Health Questionnair...
UNITED NATIONS, New York/BAMAKO, Mali/PORT-AU-PRINCE, Haiti– Out of nine pregnancies, Kadiatou experienced five tragic stillbirths, all at her home in rural Mali. Each time, she gave birth without the assistance of a skilled attendant. She never received antenatal care.None of this was her choice.Her ninth pregnancy ended in an excruciating and prolonged labour, which led to an obstetric fistula – a traumatic birth injury that causes chronic incontinence, and can lead to pain, infection and rejection by the community.
Dear Readers: The information below contains a note about a memory care facility that is looking for tablets for their residents to help them stay in touch with loved ones. Since this facility needs them, I imagine that others do as well, so if you have a tablet that you aren't using, try calling an assisted living, memory care, or nursing home in your location and ask if they need tablets for their residents. Thanks!

ConclusionVUAS recurrence after endoscopic treatment is not predictable. Endoscopic treatment with TI showed a higher risk for de novo incontinence than TR, and previous irradiation and the number of treatments do not influence incontinence.
ConclusionSurvival in patients with ATTR-PN is highly variable and affected by non-cardiac baseline characteristics, such as autonomic dysfunction, large fiber involvement, late-onset disease, and non-Val30Met mutation. Careful interpretation of these findings is warranted given that this synthesis did not control for differences between studies. Survival in patients with ATTR-PN remains poor among those who are untreated or with delayed diagnosis.
