Resumen

HERRERA BELMONTE, Gema  y  LUNA ARNEZ, Juan Carlos. EFECTIVIDAD DE LA ELECTROESTIMULACIÓN DEL NERVIO TIBIAL POSTERIOR PARA EL TRATAMIENTO DE LA INCONTINENCIA URINARIA DE ESFUERZO. Rev. Méd. La Paz [online]. 2015, vol.21, n.2, pp. 25-30. ISSN 1726-8958.

Urinary incontinence consists in any involuntary loss of urine. -The current treatment consists in pelvic strengthening exercises and surgery in severe cases. Since the tibial posterior nerve and the pelvic floor muscles present common innervation originated in the sacral roots a hypothesis arises: Electrical stimulation of the nerve is a therapeutic method of urinary incontinence. A quasi-experimental, longitudinal, prospective analytical study was performed on 22 women between 20 and 60 years during the period from June to December 2014, which met six weeks of therapy and were divided into two groups: group A who performed Kegel exercises and group B who made electrostimulation of the posterior tibial nerve and Kegel exercises. The patients answered the questionnaire urinary incontinence ICIQ-SF at the start of therapy and termination. There was an overall improvement of 26% after therapy with Kegel exercises and 69% in the group that performed electrostimulation of the posterior tibial nerve at the end of 6 weeks of treatment.

Palabras clave : Stress urinary incontinence; posterior tibial nerve stimulation.
