Abstract

The influence of dementia on the prevalence of urinary and faecal incontinence was investigated in a random sample (n = 485) of the total population of 85-year-olds from the city of Gothenburg, Sweden. The subjects were assessed by a psychiatric interview, physical examinations, computed tomography of the head and analysis of cerebrospinal fluid. Urinary and faecal incontinence were assessed by a urotherapist. Dementia, urinary and faecal incontinence were defined according to strict, internationally accepted criteria. The prevalences of urinary and faecal incontinence, and dementia were 38%, 17% and 29% respectively.

Both urinary and faecal incontinence were more prevalent in women (43% and 20% respectively) than men (27% and 11%, respectively). The prevalences of urinary and faecal incontinence, and dementia were higher in residents of a nursing home or hospital (74%, 51% and 92%, respectively) than in subjects living at home (32%, 9% and 18%, respectively). Of the demented subjects resident in an institution, 78% were ...Continue Reading
