Therapeutic effects of Low intensity extracorporeal low energy shock wave therapy (LiESWT) on stress urinary incontinence
Stress urinary incontinence is a prevalent urologic problem that is characterized by involuntary leakage of urine upon physical activity, such as exercise, exertion, sneezing, coughing, and lifting heavy objects, leading to affect a woman's physical, psychological and social activity, and impact on her quality of life. A spectrum of management modalities is currently available: lifestyle intervention and pelvic floor muscle training might be effective for mild symptom; electro-stimulation, vaginal devices and urethral inserts are non-invasive and temporary symptom-control methods; bulking agents and botulinum injections are less invasive with short-term effectiveness; mid-urethral slings and colposuspension are corrective with long-term effectiveness.
