Abstract

Urinary incontinence, mostly secondary to low urethral resistance, in 15 women was treated for 6 weeks by biofeedback. A new device equipped with visual and audio signals connected to an intravaginal probe was used by the patient for 15 minutes twice a day. Of the patients 12 were continent subjectively and objectively, 2 had 65 and 75% improvement and could lead a normal life, and only 1 failed to respond and was treated surgically. Besides the quality of the device, success depends largely on the quality of moral support given to the patient during the treatment.
