Urinary incontinence.

Abstract

Accurate diagnosis and successful management depend on knowledge of the anatomy and regulatory physiology of micturition. Incontinence is classified according to its mechanisms--passive incontinence, active incontinence with or without complete emptying, and overflow incontinence. Approaches to management include pharmacotherapy, surgical procedures and important steps in supportive care. This is a problem of any age. Educating the patient is essential.
