According to a report published in the peer-reviewed Journal of Urology (1), the prevalence of incontinence in males is as high as 18.9% in males and 37.7% in females. According to another report, published a few years later (in Journal of the American Geriatrics Society), it was estimated that the prevalence is as high as 2 to 55% in general population (2). Despite high prevalence of incontinence, a lot of patients do not seek medical intervention. This is mainly because a number of factors come into play when you have to take a decision regarding in continence treatment. Most important considerations are:

  • Cost of incontinence therapy
  • Optimal benefits and possible risk of side effects
  • Prognosis or possible outcomes of therapy
