Abstract


Urinary incontinence often impairs quality of life more significantly than other chronic diseases such as hypertension, diabetes or depression. Despite identical symptoms, there are various types of urinary incontinence that have different causes and, therefore, require different therapeutic approaches. Although several effective treatment options are available, many patients are not given such treatments and some suffer from serious consequences of incontinence surgery. An exact urological diagnosis is based upon complete understanding of the different pathogenetic mechanisms and the knowledge of modern treatment options, which is necessary to detect the optimal therapy for each patient.
