    Department of Anesthesiology, Weill Medical College of Cornell University, New York, NY, USA
    Am J Obstet Gynecol 186:S69-77. 2002
    ..Epidural use and urinary incontinence are associated immediately postpartum but not at 3 or 12 months. The mechanisms of these unintended effects need to be determined to improve epidural labor analgesia...
