... IFFGD About Incontinence Many otherwise healthy, active individuals suffer from incontinence. Fecal incontinence (also called bowel incontinence or anal incontinence) affects people of all ages. It may be defined as the involuntary loss of solid or liquid stool sufficient enough to result in impaired quality of life for the individual. "It's difficult to imagine the devastating impact bowel incontinence can have on a person's life without experiencing it directly. This is a disorder that people feel they must hide from others and talk about only in whispers." Frequent or involuntary passage of gas (flatus) without loss of fecal material, while not clinically defined as incontinence, may also impair a person's quality of life and warrant treatment. Incontinence is a distressing and isolating condition. Many people fail to report it, even to their own physician.

2. Epidemiology And Management Of Female Urinary Incontinence
Short synopsis of studies and links to other papers on UI.
Female urinary incontinence - studies of epidemiology and management in general practice
By Hogne Sandvik
Female urinary incontinence (UI) is a condition with severe economic and psychosocial impact . I have studied the epidemiology of UI in the general female population and the prevailing management of UI by Norwegian general practitioners (GPs). Those who are interested in more details, may take a look at the synopsis below. The main conclusions that may be drawn from these studies are that UI is very prevalent among adult women, mostly in the form of stress incontinence. At least 6% may be regarded as potential patients. Although complicated by methodological difficulties, studies of GPs' management indicate that available therapeutic tools are not used to their full potential. A literature review demonstrates that the history is the most important diagnostic tool in general practice, and that the value of clinical investigations is poorly documented.
The general purpose of the present investigations was to describe the epidemiology of UI in the adult female population, and to describe the management offered these patients by Norwegian GPs. Secondly, the validity of some of the employed methods was investigated. Studies were undertaken with the following specific aims:
  • to validate a severity index and diagnostic questions for different types of female UI
  • to describe the prevalence of female UI in the general adult population, according to different types and severity

Diagnostic Evaluation of Urinary Incontinence in Geriatric Patients
University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio,
San Antonio, Texas
A patient information handout on urinary incontinence , written by Elizabeth S. Smoots, M.D., Seattle, Wash., is provided on page 2688. In most cases, the evaluation of urinary incontinence requires only a history, a physical examination, urinalysis and measurement of postvoid residual urine volume. The initial purposes of the evaluation are to identify conditions requiring referral or specialized work-up and to detect and treat reversible causes that may be present. If the patient does not appear to require referral and a reversible cause is not identified, the next step is to categorize the patient's symptoms as typical of either urge or stress incontinence and treat the patient accordingly. If treatment fails or a presumptive diagnosis of urge or stress incontinence cannot be reached, the final step would be to perform more sophisticated tests or refer the patient for testing to define the cause and determine the best treatment. U rinary incontinence, the unintentional leakage of urine at inappropriate times, is a classic syndrome in geriatric medicine. It affects approximately 13 million persons in the United States, most of whom are older adults.

This can range from an occasional leakage of urine, to a complete inability to hold any urine. The two main types of urinary incontinence are:
  • Stress incontinence occurs during certain activities like coughing, sneezing, laughing, or exercise. Urge incontinence involves a strong, sudden need to urinate followed by instant bladder contraction and involuntary loss of urine. You don't have enough time between when you recognize the need to urinate and when you actually do urinate.
Bowel incontinence , a separate topic, is the inability to control the passage of stool.

  • Acute Urinary Incontinence
  • Chronic Urinary Incontinence
    Acute Urinary Incontinence
    Acute (or Transient) Incontinence is caused by a new or recent medical problem that can be treated. Medical conditions such as dehydration, delirium, urinary retention, fecal impaction/constipation, urinary tract infection and atrophic vaginitis can cause an onset of UI. If one of these problems is identified, treatment to correct the problem should be started. Once the medical problem causing the acute incontinence is resolved, the incontinence should improve. In addition to medical problems, certain medications can cause or contribute to an incontinence problem. An easy acronym used to remember these causes is the word DRIP. The breakdown of this word is as follows:

Urinary incontinence can result from anatomic, physiologic, or pathologic (disease) factors. Congenital and acquired disorders of muscle innervation (e.g., ALS, spina bifida, multiple sclerosis) eventually cause inadequate urinary storage or control. Acute and temporary incontinence are commonly caused by the following:
  • Childbirth
  • Limited mobility
  • Medication side effect
  • Urinary tract infection
Chronic incontinence is commonly caused by these factors:
  • Birth defects
  • Bladder muscle weakness
  • Blocked urethra (due to benign prostate hyperplasia, tumor, etc.)
