One-to-one therapy to manage urinary incontinence in men following prostate surgery no more effective than standard care
Urinary incontinence is common immediately after prostate surgery.

Expensive diagnostic test may not be necessary before stress incontinence surgery
A routine, but expensive, test for women who undergo stress incontinence surgery may not always be necessary, according to a study published in the latest issue of the New England Journal of Medicine.

The study found that women who underwent a doctor's evaluation and urodynamics versus a doctor's evaluation alone did not have better outcomes after stress incontinence surgery. (2012-05-02)

Contracting pelvic floor muscles prevents urine leakage before and after pregnancy

Does adding therapy before, after surgery for urinary incontinence help?
Adding behavioral and physical therapy before and after surgery for women with stress and urgency urinary incontinence resulted in a small improvement in symptoms compared to women who just had surgery but that difference in symptoms may not be clinically important. There have been a lack of studies examining treatments for women with both stress and urgency urinary incontinence also called mixed urinary incontinence. (2019-09-17)

Cell transplants may improve severe urinary incontinence
Severe urinary incontinence can be caused by urethral sphincter muscle deficiency, often associated with trauma during childbirth, prostate surgery, or aging. When skeletal myoblasts -- progenitor muscle cells with the potential to develop into muscle fiber -- were transplanted into female rats suffering from urethral sphincter deficiency, transplanted muscle cells helped increase urethral pressure, improving incontinence. Implanting myoblasts could be a potential innovative therapy for urethral deficiencies that lead to human incontinence. (2007-11-13)
