Abstract

Background
Transurethral radiofrequency collagen denaturation is a relatively novel, minimally invasive device-based intervention used to treat individuals with urinary incontinence (UI). No systematic review of the evidence supporting its use has been published to date.

Objectives
To evaluate the efficacy of transurethral radiofrequency collagen denaturation, compared with other interventions, in the treatment of women with UI.

Review authors sought to compare the following.

• Transurethral radiofrequency collagen denaturation versus no treatment/sham treatment.
• Transurethral radiofrequency collagen denaturation versus conservative physical treatment.
• Transurethral radiofrequency collagen denaturation versus mechanical devices (pessaries for UI).
• Transurethral radiofrequency collagen denaturation versus drug treatment.
• Transurethral radiofrequency collagen denaturation versus injectable treatment for UI.
• Transurethral radiofrequency collagen denaturation versus other surgery for UI.
