URINARY INCONTINENCE

URINARY INCONTINENCE - WHAT IS IT?

Urinary incontinence is the involuntary inability to hold urine and untimely urination. One in every five women over the age of 30 faces more or less urinary incontinence. After the age of 65, almost one in every three women experience urinary incontinence. Urinary incontinence is much more common than expected, especially among women, and this situation leads to restrictions in psychological and sociological relationships in most patients.

Urinary incontinence problem is more common in women than in men.

This is because:

Pelvic muscle weakness after birth
Weakening of urethra support after menopause
The length of the female urethra (urinary tract) is shorter than that of men.
The problem of urinary incontinence is now more common in middle and young age people than we think. Urinary incontinence problem negatively affects a person’s daily life and quality of life. Urinary incontinence problem is very debilitating. There is a feeling of discomfort due to the constant worry of wetness and smell, and it can isolate the person from society and lead to depression.

Urinary incontinence is generally divided into 4 groups.

STRESS URINARY INCONTINENCE

Stress urinary incontinence is the most common type of urinary incontinence in women. Urine leakage occurs in situations that increase intra-abdominal pressure, such as coughing, sneezing, laughing, heavy lifting and exercise.

Causes of stress urinary incontinence:
excess weight
Conditions where intra-abdominal pressure increases, such as chronic lung diseases,
Vaginal births, especially those with a history of difficult and large baby births,
Menopause
Becoming a mother at an older age
Respiratory system diseases that cause frequent coughing

Overflow incontinence

Overflow urinary incontinence is generally seen in the elderly. There is pathology in the nerve network of the bladder. Additionally, during urination, the bladder valve, which must loosen for urine to flow, cannot relax sufficiently. Since there is no relaxation, the bladder cannot be emptied completely. However, due to the pathology in the neural network, the bladder cannot understand when it is filled with urine. There is no feeling of congestion and urine leakage occurs.

Causes of overflow urinary incontinence:
Damage to the nerves that control the bladder due to diabetes and spinal cord injury
Change in the normal location of the uterus due to its prolapse

HOW IS URINARY INCONTINENCE TREATMENT DONE WITH LASER?

  • The patient is taken to the gynecological examination table.
    A sterile speculum specially developed for laser is inserted into the vagina.
    The laser probe is sent into the vagina.
    Laser shots are made around the bladder neck and urethra (urinary tract).
    Thanks to the energy given, collagen and elastic connective tissue in this area are stimulated.
    By stimulating the connective tissue, this area tightens, the urinary tract is fixed and supported, and the problem of urinary incontinence is eliminated.
    Laser urinary incontinence treatment takes approximately 15-20 minutes on average.
    Generally, 2 – 4 sessions are applied with an interval of 4 weeks.
    After the procedure, sexual intercourse is restricted for 7 days.
