Stress Urinary incontinence is a common issue in men and women. Doctor Arnaldo Trabucco has written several papers on this topic and helps his patients overcome this disorder. One in every two adult women suffers from stress urinary incontinence. This disorder causes the involuntary release of urine when stress is placed on the bladder and urethra. Stress can include coughing, sneezing, laughing, heavy lifting, jumping, or running. There are several treatments available for this disorder.
Urologists may have women perform pelvic floor muscle exercises. Many women suffer from stress urinary incontinence because they have a weak pelvic floor. This exercises are called Kegel exercises and strengthen the pelvic floor muscles as well as the urinary sphincter. If women perform these exercises regularly, they are less likely to have stress urinary incontinence.
There are also devices available for women who suffer from this disorder. A vaginal pessary is a ring shaped device that has two bumps that rest on either side of the urethra. This device provides support to the bladder and prevents leakage, but is not practical in sexually active women.
Another option is surgery. Some women may have a sling procedure, which uses the patient’s own tissue, a mesh, or donor tissue to create a sling that supports the urethra. This surgery may also be used for men who suffer from stress urinary incontinence. This type of surgery is the most common for this disorder. Arnaldo Trabucco has performed a plethora of surgeries on men and women. He helps them solve urological disorders so that they can have healthier futures.
