The use of botulinum toxin A (BoNT-A) has expanded across a range of lower urinary tract conditions. This review provides an overview of the current indications for BoNT-A in the lower urinary tract and critically evaluates the published evidence within each area. The classic application of BoNT-A has been in the management of refractory neurogenic detrusor overactivity (NDO) and overactive bladder (OAB). There is a large volume of high-quality evidence, including numerous randomized placebo-controlled trials, which demonstrate the efficacy of BoNT-A over a long follow-up period...

An over-active bladder is a common disorder which influences women's health and quality of life. There is difficulty defining the exact prevalence of the disorder since there are various definitions in the literature. The ICS definition from 2002 on the over-active bladder (OAB) syndrome enables more uniformity, by declaring that OAB syndrome is a symptomatic syndrome defined as presence of urgency with or without urinary incontinence, mostly accompanied by frequency and nocturia. In this article we reviewed the current medical literature on the prevalence of the OAB syndrome by focusing on relevant crosssectional and longitudinal studies, the trend changes during life, co-morbidities, the influence of quality of life and the economic burden following the disorder and its treatment...

BACKGROUND: The ICCS defines OAB by the subjective symptom of urgency; detrusor overactivity (DO) is only implied. While no other symptom is required, OAB can also be associated with urinary frequency, decreased functional bladder capacity, and incontinence. OBJECTIVE: We sought to determine how often these associated findings occur in OAB and what if any uroflow/EMG-defined conditions are found to be associated with it. METHODS: The charts of 548 children (231M, 318F; mean age 9...

OBJECTIVE: In this study, we aimed to evaluate the effect of sacrocolpopexy and retropubic midurethral sling, or transvaginal tape (TVT) procedure, on overactive bladder (OAB) symptoms. Our null hypothesis was that concomitant sacrocolpopexy and TVT exacerbate OAB symptoms. MATERIAL AND METHODS: This is a prospective cohort study. All subjects had apical/anterior prolapse and underwent robotic-assisted sacrocolpopexy and TVT, with or without concomitant hysterectomy...

OBJECTIVES: To understand the relationship between age, frailty and overactive bladder (OAB). METHODS: This is a prospective study of individuals age ≥65 presenting to an academic urology practice between December 2015 and July 2016. All patients had a Timed Up and Go Test (TUGT), a parsimonious measure of frailty, on intake and were thereby categorized as fast (≤10 sec), intermediate (11-14 sec) and slow (≥15 sec). The TUGT and other clinical data were abstracted from the electronic medical record (EMR) using direct queries...

AIMS: MicroRNAs (miRs) control post-transcriptional gene expression, and this is relevant in understanding better chronic diseases and treatment outcomes. The role of miRs in the pathology and treatment outcomes of overactive bladder (OAB) is unknown. In this study, we assessed the differential expression of miRs in OAB patients responding with either normal or elevated post-void residual volumes (PVRs) ≥200 mL following intradetrusor injection of onabotulinumtoxin-A (onaBoNT-A). METHODS: Female OAB patients refractory to OAB drugs were consented for this study...

PURPOSE: A recent study demonstrated improvement of nocturnal urgency in patients with overactive bladder (OAB) when treated with fesoterodine. The current study aims to determine which bladder diary parameters predict response to fesoterodine in these patients. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Patients with nocturnal urgency completed a 2-week, single-blind, placebo run-in, followed by 1:1 double-blind randomization to 12 weeks of fesoterodine or placebo. We analysed changes from baseline to week 12 of bladder diary parameters including actual number night voids (ANV, total # nocturia episodes), maximum voided volume (MVV), nocturnal bladder capacity (NBC), nocturnal bladder capacity index (NBCi = ANV- NUV/MVV-1), nocturnal urine volume (NUV), nocturia index (Ni = NUV/MVV), nocturnal polyuria index and (NPi = NUV/24 hour volume)...

AIMS: Overactive bladder (OAB) is highly prevalent particularly among obese patients and significantly impacts quality of life. Anticholinergics are the first-line treatment. The effect of obesity on medication compliance has not been studied. Our study evaluated gender- and obesity-specific adherence and persistence of anticholinergic medications in OAB. We also compared adherence and persistence on solifenacin to oxybutynin, tolterodine, and all anticholinergics combined. METHODS: Truven Marketscan Commercial Claims and Encounter database from 2005 to 2013 was used...

Cystoscopy and cystodistension have been part of common treatment protocols for a variety of bladder conditions for many years. However, the science behind the procedure is not strong and continued use of the operation may not be justified. Much research is old and was not planned or executed with the current rigour demanded by current trial methods. Newer treatments such as intravesical botulinum toxin have been extensively researched and found to be effective. This review article aimed to review the evidence behind the use of cystodistension for overactive bladder (OAB) with the aim of identifying the weaknesses in the current evidence...

AIMS: The primary aim is to provide detailed rationale and methodology for the development and implementation of a perioperative behavioral/pelvic floor exercise research protocol for women who self-chose surgical intervention and who may or may not have been offered behavioral treatments initially. This protocol is part of the ESTEEM trial (Effects of Surgical Treatment Enhanced with Exercise for Mixed Urinary Incontinence Trial) which was designed to determine the effect of a combined surgical and perioperative behavioral/pelvic floor exercise intervention versus surgery alone on improving mixed urinary incontinence (MUI) and overactive bladder (OAB) symptoms...

AIMS: Although anecdotal reports of urinary urgency at one's front door are common in overactive bladder syndrome (OAB), little research has been done on how one's front door and other stimuli are related to urinary symptoms. We hypothesized that individuals with OAB would have higher scores on the Urinary Cues Questionnaire, developed for this study to assess stimulus-associated urinary urges, than those without OAB. METHODS: Online surveys were administered to 328 women age 18-40 years recruited from a respondent panel maintained by CINT such that one-third of the sample reported a diagnosis of OAB...

INTRODUCTION: Overactive bladder (OAB) symptoms (urge, frequency, nocturia) are not generally considered surgically curable by learning institutions. The Integral Theory hypothesizes that OAB is a prematurely activated, but normal micturition reflex caused by loose suspensory ligaments and potentially curable surgically by repairing such ligaments. To test this hypothesis by surgical repair of loose cardinal and uterosacral ligaments in patients with 2(nd) degree or greater uterine/apical prolapse...
