Brief Summary:
The aim of this study is to assess the benefit of GYNEFFIK®, a perineal electro-stimulator, during this home-care phase. Women with stress urinary incontinence (UI) or with mixed UI (composed predominantly of stress UI), that responded to physiotherapy were included in this study in two parallel groups. The groups followed a self-reeducation program, with or without GYNEFFIK® electro-stimulation sessions. The comparison of the two groups was based on the rate of women for whom the benefit of the initial perineal reeducation was maintained.

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: GYNEFFIK(R)
30 min-session of vaginal electro-stimulation by GYNEFFIK thrice a week for 6 months (except during menstrual periods)
Device: GYNEFFIK(R)
Vaginal electro-stimulation medical device

Usual Care
Any treatment / physiotherapy sessions / muscular training ... usually recommended and/or prescribed by the patient's general practitioner or gynaecologist with the exception of vaginal electro-stimulation
Other: Usual Care
Any treatment / physiotherapy sessions / muscular training ... usually recommended and/or prescribed by the patient's general practitioner or gynaecologist with the exception of vaginal electro-stimulation




Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Non-Worsening of ICIQ + Ditrovie Scales' Scores [ Time Frame: 6 Months (or last measurement if premature ending) ]

    The primary outcome is defined as the non worsening of the ICIQ (International Consultation on Incontinence modular Questionnaire) scale's score AND the DITROVIE scale's score (a specific scale to evaluate the perturbation of the quality of life during urinary troubles).

    The scores will be considered as maintained if they didn't increase more than 10% with the following calculation:

    ICIQ variation (%) = 100 x (ICIQ_M6 - ICIQ_D0)/ICIQ_D0

    DITROVIE variation (%) = 100 x (DITROVIE_M6 - DITROVIE_D0)/(DITROVIE_D0 -10)



Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. ICIQ Score [ Time Frame: 6 Months (or last measurement if premature ending) ]

    Quantitative analyses:

    • difference = ICIQ_M6 - ICIQ_D0
    • variation (%)= 100 x (ICIQ_M6 - ICIQ_D0)/ICIQ_D0

    Qualitative analysis

    * % of patients with a variation % <-10%, between -10% and +10%, >10%


  2. DITROVIE Score [ Time Frame: 6 Months (or least measurement if premature ending) ]

    Quantitative analyses:

    • difference = DITROVIE_M6 - DITROVIE_D0
    • variation (%)= 100 x (DITROVIE_M6 - DITROVIE_D0)/(DITROVIE_D0 - 10)

    Qualitative analysis

    * % of patients with a variation % <-10%, between -10% and +10%, >10%


  3. ICG score [ Time Frame: 6 Months (or last measurement if premature ending) ]
    The ICG (clinical global impression) score is the subjective impression of the patient regarding the evolution of her own clinical condition. It will be determined between inclusion and M6 (or the last visit).

  4. SF-12 Health Survey (Medical Outcomes Study Short-Form General Health Survey) [ Time Frame: 6 Months (or last measurement if premature ending) ]

    Difference = M6 -D0

    Variation % = 100 x (M6 - D0)/D0


  5. HAD (Hospital Anxiety and Depression) scale [ Time Frame: 6 months (or last measurement if premature ending) ]

    Qualitative analysis:

    • improvement from sub-score > 10 to sub-score < 10
    • no change
    • worsening from sub-score < 10 to sub-score > 10

  6. Bladder diary [ Time Frame: 6 Months (or last visit if premature ending) ]

    A bladder diary will be filled by the patient for 3 days before the inclusion visit and then for 3 days before the final visit.

    The following items will be compared between D0 and M6: normal urinary episodes, incontinence episodes and drinks, in number and volume.

    Difference = M6 - D0 Variation % = 100 x (M6-D0)/D0



Other Outcome Measures:
  1. Adverse Events [ Time Frame: 6 Months ]
  2. Compliance [ Time Frame: 6 Months ]
    The lasts electro-stimulation sessions are recorded by the medical device.
