In brief: A few options
The treatment options include medication, and neuromodulation therapy.
The latter is known as interstim therapy. The meds inhibit inappropriate contractions (spasms) of the bladder's detrusor muscle, which is the cause of ui. Pts with ui have an overactive detrusor. If the meds are not tolerated, ineffective or contraindicated, interstim is usually very effective and is a simple, safe option.
