Abstract: A new device for the urinary incontinence, U-CON, has been applied in 12 patients. Excellent response was noticed in 5 patients, good response in 4 and no response in 3. The rationale of this machine is to give the continuous electric stimulation to pudendal nerve over the skin, which, in turn, keeps the external urethral sphincter in male and pelvic muscles in female contracted and prevents urinary leakage. The electrode can be easily fixed by patient himself inside ischial tuberosity by means of an adhesive plaster. For the patient with stress incontinence, this device should be tried first, since a good response could be expected, before considering the surgical intervention such as Marshall-Marchetti operation and recently developed implantable sphincter stimulator.
