Original Title: Biofeedback en adultos con incontinencia urinaria y/o fecal
Authors' recomendations: CONCLUSIONS Moderate-quality evidence suggests that biofeedback therapy in combination with pelvic floor exercises might not have benefits in relieving urinary incontinency symptoms in women at short term. Moderate quality evidence suggests that preoperative biofeedback therapy would not have benefits in relieving urinary incontinence symptoms in men who will undergo prostatectomy. Moderate-quality evidence suggests that biofeedback therapy in combination with pelvic floor exercises might provide considerable benefits in fecal incontinence symptom remission in men and women at short term. Moderate-quality evidence suggests that postoperative biofeedback therapy might provide benefits in relieving symptoms and improving quality of life in men with urinary incontinence who underwent prostatectomy at mid and long term. Some clinical practice guidelines suggest adding biofeedback therapy to fecal and urinary incontinence treatment when pelvic floor muscle exercise therapy without biofeedback failed. Coverage policies from different countries and health insurances cover biofeedback when pelvic floor muscle exercise therapy without biofeedback failed.
