Incontinence Supplies

Incontinence Management
In elderly patients, incontinence commonly follows loss of urinary or anal sphincter control or impairment of it. The incontinence can be transient or permanent depending on the cause of the problem and success of the treatment. When treating a patient with urinary or fecal incontinence, carefully assess him for underlying disorders. Treatment aims to control the incontinence through bladder or bowel retraining or other behavior management techniques, diet modifications, drug therapy, and possible surgery.
Surgery options
Corrective surgery for urinary incontinence includes transurethral resection of the prostate in men, repair of the anterior vaginal wall or retropelvic suspension of the bladder for women, urethral sling, and bladder augmentation.
