Drug treatments available include: Mesalazine in tablet form: mesalazine also known as 5-ASA (5-aminosalicylic acid) and is normally the first line treatment for ulcerative colitis. The drug works by being in contact with the bowel lining. Mesalazine suppositories, foam, or liquid enema (topical therapy). Often tablets and topical treatment are used together. Steroids are sometimes needed to control flare-ups of inflammation for short periods. Immunosuppressants: strong medicines that decrease the activity of the body's immune system. Azathioprine and mercaptopurine are the most commonly used drugs in ulcerative colitis. Ciclosporine and methotrexate are also sometimes used. Biological therapies: infliximab (Remicade®) is an inhibitor of tumour necrosis factor alpha (TNF-alpha), which is a molecule that stimulates inflammation. Infliximab is sometimes used as a ‘rescue therapy’ in people with acute severe ulcerative colitis in an attempt to avoid surgery.

Urinary incontinence can be an uncomfortable and upsetting problem. However, many women with severe urine incontinence are surprised to find their condition can be treated simply and effectively, without needing to think about surgery. Pelvic floor exercises: We teach these exercises using biofeedback equipment; the patient is given a pelvic floor educator to practise with at home. We also use vaginal weights and electrical stimulation to help the pelvic floor contract, thereby becoming stronger. Lifestyle changes can be made and more recently a new procedure using Botulinum A toxin (Botox®) has been used to treat patients who have not had successful treatment with drug therapy. This treatment involves injections into the bladder under a local anaesthetic and the effects last an average of 12 months.
Patients receiving the Urolift implant report rapid improvements in their symptoms including increased urinary flow rates.
