Abstract

In the present study the authors wanted to transfer rigorous methods of study, already in use in other sectors (sports, medicine, isokinetic work, etc.) of the validity of interventions made and their effectiveness, into an "emerging" field, that of perineal rehabilitation. 15 female patients, aged between 35 and 45, affected by stress incontinence underwent a baseline clinico-instrumental evaluation of the perineal floor including a computerized test of endurance. The patients then embarked upon a standardized rehabilitative perineal training lasting a month and at the end underwent an identical evaluation as that performed at the outset. Statistical analysis of the results obtained showed an objective improvement in the parameters considered (endovaginal pressure and its variations during a series of intermittent static contractions) quantitatively supporting clinical evidence.
