Abstract

Reliable application of devices to correct urinary incontinence in the elderly has been limited because of the undesirable side effects of external appliances and the technologic and/or surgical complexity of implanted prostheses. A nonsurgical treatment program utilizing intermittent catheterization with ultrasonic bladder volume sensing in females and penile compressive bands or intermittent catheterization with bladder volume sensing in males is described.
