Urgency Frequency Syndromes and Urge Urinary Incontinence

In a prospective, multinational study, Siegel et al.5 reported on 112 patients with urge incontinence, urgency/frequency, or urinary retention. Follow-up ranged from 18 to 36 months with all three groups showing significant improvement. The urge incontinence group noted a decrease in leaks per day from 11.6 to 5.0. Fifty-nine percent had greater than 50% reduction in leaks, and 46% reported they were completely dry. Heavy leaking episodes decreased to an average of 1.3 per day. The number of pads/diapers replaced was reduced from 6.7 pads to 3.4 pads per day. In the urgency/frequency group, average reported voids per day decreased from 17 to 10.6. Improvement in the degree of urgency was reduced as demonstrated by 69% of patients. Volume of urine per void increased from 132 to 225mL. Adverse effects were lead migration (18.2%), pain at the implantation site (15.3%), new pain (9.0%), suspected lead migration (8.4%), infection (6.1%), adverse change in bowel function (3.0%), suspected device problems (1.6%), nerve injury (0.5%), device rejection (0.5%), and other (9.5%).
