Abstract [en]

The aim of this study was to evaluate the long-lasting effect of pelvic floor muscle training (PFMT) in women with urinary incontinence after stroke measured by quality of life parameters. Twenty-four (24/24) women with urinary incontinence after stroke, who had completed a prospective, randomised controlled and single-blinded trial evaluating the effect of 12 weeks PFMT, were included in this follow-up study. The follow-up assessments were done by telephone interview 6 months after the intervention. The effect was evaluated by The Short Form 36 (SF-36) Health Survey Questionnaire and Incontinence Impact Questionnaire (IIQ). Twenty-four subjects completed the study. In the treatment group, the SF-36 showed a trend to a long-lasting effect in one of the eight domains and the IIQ showed a tendency to decreased impact of UI in two sub-scales compared to the control group. Our data indicated that PFMT may have a long-lasting effect measured by quality of life parameters.
