Urodynamic alterations after pelvic floor exercises for treatment of stress urinary incontinence in women.
Clin Exp Obstet Gynecol 2004; 31(3):194-6CE

Abstract

The following study improves the effectiveness of pelvic floor exercise in women with stress urinary incontinence. A group of 27 women with stress urinary incontinence performed specific pelvic floor exercises twice a week for 45 minutes under a therapist's supervision for a period of 12 weeks. This group had urodynamic and urethral pressure profile studies and filled in a daily diary. The patients self-evaluated their symptoms. After the therapy, the urodynamic and urethreal pressure profile studies were repeated and the results were: 66.7% patients were self-evaluated as cured; 14.8% improved and 18.5% unchanged. The urodynamic results showed that 48.2 % of the patients did not have urinary loss, however, 51,8% of the patients that had a loss showed an increase in vesicle volume, and only 7.3% remained unchanged. The results show that pelvic floor exercises are an effective and low cost treatment for stress urinary incontinence rehabilitation.
