Abstract

Objectives: To analyze the frequency and risk factors for urinary incontinence (UI) in Italy. Methods: Eligible for this cross-sectional study were men aged greater than or equal to 50 years and women aged greater than or equal to 40, randomlyidentified among registered subjects of a network of general practitionersduring the period March-October 1997. All subjects were invited by telephonic interview to determine the presence of UI, reported by the subjects as lass of urine in the last year. The subjects with UI were further questioned at home for evaluation of the type, degree and frequency of UI episodes. Results: Of the 5,488 subjects interviewed (2,767 women and 2,721 men), 92(3%) men and 316 (11%)women reported at least one episode of UI during theyear before the interview. The frequence of UI increased with age both in men and women, being 2 and 11% in men and women, respectively, aged 50-60 years and 7 and 16% in those aged greater than or equal to 70. Of the subjects with UI identified, 229 women and 64 men and a group of 289 subjects without UI were questionned at home using a detailed questionnaire. Six and 55% of men and women, respectively, reported stress incontinence, 20 and 12% urge incontinence and 20 and 24% mixed incontinence. The risk of UI increased with body mass index in women. A history of recurrent urinary infection was associated with UI in men and less markedly in women. No association emerged between education, smoking and alcohol or coffee consumption and riskof UI. Parity was directly associated with the risk of UI in women. Conclusions: The study offers a quantitative estimate of the prevalence ofUI and its main risk factors in this Italian population.
