Treatment of overactive bladder (OAB) syndrome and stress urinary incontinence (SUI) can be divided into conservative, medical, and surgical treatments

Conservative treatments include patient and carer education, risk factor modification, bladder training, and pelvic floor muscle training

Antimuscarinics form the mainstay of medical treatment in OAB

There are no recognized medical treatments for SUI, however selective serotonin re-uptake inhibitors have been licensed in some countries for women with SUI

Surgical treatment of OAB includes intra-detrusor botulinum toxin injections, sacral nerve stimulation, bladder augmentation, detrusor myectomy or urinary diversion

Surgical treatment of SUI includes urethral bulking agents, mid-urethral synthetic slings, autologous slings, or artificial urinary sphincters.
