[Experiences in treatment of urinary incontinence in the female by electrostimulation].

Abstract

Electrostimulation-treatment was carried out in 47 female patients suffering from urinary stress incontinence. A special electrode-pair was applicated in the vagina under the bladder neck. The electrostimulation lasted for 8 hours daily through 3 to 8 days on one hand, and on the other hand for 24 hours 3 to 5 times successively. In order to specify the cases and to perform the urodynamics a uroflow-cystometer by Wolf was used. The classification of the stress incontinence occurred by the Ingelman-Sundberg scheme. Rate of successfully treated patients depended on the length of time and degree of incontinence, furthermore on the extent of anatomical alteration. Following the electrostimulation 20 patients became symptomless (42 per cent), in 17 cases the complaints decreased and in 10 cases the treatment proved to be inefficient. Authors suggest that like other conservative measures the vaginal electrostimulation can be applied as a treatment of some forms of urinary stress incontinence under in-patient service.
