Urodynamic investigations for management of urinary incontinence in adults.

Abstract:

BACKGROUND:Urodynamic tests are used to investigate people who have urinary incontinence or other urinary symptoms in order to make a definitive objective diagnosis. The aim is to help to select the treatment most likely to be successful. The investigations are invasive and time consuming. OBJECTIVES:The objective of this review was to discover if treatment according to a urodynamic-based diagnosis led to clinical improvements in urinary incontinence, compared to treatment based on history and examination. SEARCH STRATEGY:We searched the Cochrane Incontinence Group trials register. Date of the most recent search: April 2002. SELECTION CRITERIA:Randomised and quasi-randomised trials comparing clinical outcomes in groups of people who were and were not investigated using urodynamics, or comparing one type of urodynamics against another. DATA COLLECTION AND ANALYSIS:Two reviewers independently assessed trial quality and extracted data. Authors of one study were contacted for more information, including adverse effects. MAIN RESULTS:Two small trials involving 128 women were included. In one small trial, women who were investigated with urodynamics were more likely to receive active treatment with drugs or surgery. However, the numbers in both trials were too small to determine if this affected clinical outcomes such as a reduction in incontinence. REVIEWER'S CONCLUSIONS:A larger definitive trial is needed, in which people are randomly allocated to management according to urodynamic findings or to standard management based on history and clinical examination.

  • Moderately early (7-14 days) postnatal corticosteroids for preventing chronic lung disease in preterm infants.

    abstract:BACKGROUND:Corticosteroids have been used late in the neonatal period to treat chronic lung disease (CLD) in preterm babies, and early to try to prevent it. CLD is likely to be the result of persisting inflammation in the lung and the use of powerful anti-inflammatory drugs like dexamethasone has some rationale. Early ...
