NHS Evidence Urinary incontinence - Annual Evidence Updates

Women's health is holding its second Annual Evidence Update (AEU) on Female Urinary Incontinence from Monday 1 February.

This 2010 Evidence Update builds on the accumulated knowledge-base and provides up-to-date summaries of the latest evidence in the management of stress and urge urinary incontinence and overactive bladder. Specific topics include: sacral neuromodulation for urinary storage and voiding dysfunction; pharmacotherapy for stress urinary incontinence; the use of botulinum toxin in the management of overactive bladder syndrome (OAB), and conservative management of stress urinary incontinence.

The 2010 Annual Evidence Update on Male Urinary Incontinence is also being launched that day, in advance of the publication of the NICE guidelines on the Management of Lower Urinary Tract Symptoms in Men later this year.

This AEU updates the high-quality evidence and commentaries presented in early 2009 on: post-prostatectomy and urinary incontinence; Botulinum Toxin A; conservative management; male and female quality of life studies; stress urinary incontinence and surgery; stress urinary incontinence and drug treatment; urgency urinary incontinence and surgery; and urgency urinary incontinence and drug treatment. We also present the RCTs and lower level evidence published in 2009 on Botulinum Toxin A and male urinary incontinence.
