Shamliyan and colleagues synthesized the evidence about management of urinary incontinence in women. From 96 randomized, controlled trials and 3 systematic reviews, they found that pelvic floor muscle training and bladder training can resolve the condition. Anticholinergic drugs can resolve urinary incontinence; oxybutynin and tolterodine had similar effects; and duloxetine improved but did not resolve urinary incontinence. The evidence on electrostimulation, medical devices, injectable bulking agents, and local estrogen therapy is inconsistent.
