Abstract

Mixed urinary incontinence is a commonly encountered condition for urologists, urogynecologists, and primary care providers. In this review, we discuss the approach to the evaluation and management of patients with simultaneous stress and urgency urinary incontinence. The available evidence for treatment modalities in the setting of mixed urinary incontinence is presented, and we discuss our treatment algorithm for this common but challenging clinical scenario. An accurate assessment of stress and urge symptoms and their relative impact on quality of life help guide the management plan, appropriate counseling, and appropriate appraisal of patient expectations for treatment.
