Urinary Incontinence In Men Over 50
Although urinary incontinence (UI) in men is an increasing problem, it has not been investigated to the same degree as that in women. In an urbanised environment, with diverse demands on health professionals, incontinence remains a problem difficult to solve not only for the individual patient but also in terms of a public health strategy, since costs related to urinary incontinence are impressive.
The prevalence of UI is increasing since this complaint is much more common in the elderly - and this section of the population is increasing in Western societies. Greater public awareness and education are further increasing demands for effective therapy for the male population.
