Bladder emptying disorders and urinary incontinence

  • Urinary incontinence in general

    Urinary incontinence characterizes an uncontrolled loss of urine. For feeling of shame it  is often kept in secrecy and this may lead to a substantial burden on quality of life.
    Worldwide, the International Continence Society (ICS) assumes that 30% of women and 15% of men over 60 years of age suffer from the symptoms of urinary incontinence.

    In the main  forms a distinction is made between:

    Stress incontinence = loss of urine during physical strain without noticeable urinary urge

    Urge urinary incontinence = an involuntary loss of urine, accompanying or following a suddenly onset, not suppressible urge to urinate.

    Mixed incontinence = a mixed form of stress and urge incontinence
    In addition there are special types of incontinence, such as enuresis, nocturnal bedwetting of the child.

    For an overactive bladder the urge complaints are in the foreground, a loss of urine does not have to occur here.

    Because many factors, such as neurological, psychiatric or cardiac diseases, metabolic diseases such as diabetes mellitus (diabetes), surgery on the pelvic organs, but also medication can have influence on bladder emptying, an accurate investigation of complaints is for us a priority. Through a detailed and thorough diagnostics an individual therapy can be adjusted.
