Abstract

Standard treatment for urinary incontinence in women has evolved during the past few decades. Conservative measures such as pelvic floor exercises and biofeedback may be effective and have been advocated for the past several years. However, the availability of other methods that are potentially more invasive yet efficacious provides a wider range of choices for women with urinary incontinence. With these alternatives comes opportunity and responsibility to assess how successful these treatments are. This article explores current methods of analyzing outcomes of urinary incontinence treatments.
