Frequent nocturnal urination in older men is associated with arterial stiffness: The Nagahama study.

Nocturia in older adults has been reported to be a risk factor for cardiovascular outcomes, and the stiffening of large arteries might be an underlying mechanism. To clarify the possible association between nocturia and arterial stiffness, we analyzed a dataset from the Japanese general population.

The Impact of Nocturia on Mortality: A Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis.

Nocturia (waking from sleep at night to void) is a common cause of sleep disruption and associated with increased comorbidity and impaired quality of life. However, its impact on mortality remains unclear.

Turkish validation of the overactive bladder symptom score (OABSS) and evaluation of mirabegron treatment response.

Overactive bladder (OAB) is a syndrome with symptoms such as urinary frequency, urinary urgency and urge incontinence. The aim of this study is to assess the validity and reliability of the Turkish overactive bladder symptom score (OABSS) and to evaluate the results of mirabegron treatment with OABSS.

Nocturia and its clinical implications in older women.

The aim of this study is to demonstrate the relationship between nocturia and geriatric syndromes, and comprehensive geriatric assessment parameters (CGA) in older women. 858 older outpatient women were included in this cross-sectional study.

Nocturia: The Complex Role of the Heart, Kidneys, and Bladder.

We review the role of the heart, kidneys, and bladder in the pathophysiology of nocturia and nocturnal polyuria. Lower urinary tract symptoms such as nocturia have often been associated with lower urinary tract dysfunction.

Pathophysiologic Mechanisms of Nocturia and Nocturnal Polyuria: The Contribution of Cellular Function, the Urinary Bladder Urothelium, and Circadian Rhythm.

Alterations to arginine vasopressin (AVP) secretion, the urinary bladder urothelium (UT) and other components of the bladder, and the water homeostasis biosystem may be relevant to the pathophysiology of nocturia and nocturnal polyuria (NP).

The Impact of Nocturia on Falls and Fractures: A Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis.

Although nocturia is associated with various comorbidities, its impact on falls and fractures remains unclear. We performed a systematic review and meta-analysis to evaluate the association between nocturia with falls and fractures, both as a prognostic and causal risk factor.

Incidence of Nocturia in Men with Lower Urinary Tract Symptoms Associated with Benign Prostatic Enlargement and Outcomes After Medical Treatment: Results from the Evolution European Association of Urology Research Foundation Prospective Multinational Regi

Nocturia is one of the most prevalent and bothersome lower urinary tract symptoms (LUTS) in men, leading to increased morbidity and mortality and a considerable economic burden on healthcare systems.

Nocturia: A Highly Prevalent Disorder with Multifaceted Consequences.

Nocturia is a bothersome, multifactorial condition with many underlying causes and contributing factors. Nocturnal polyuria (NP; overproduction of urine at night) is a frequent component. The prevalence of nocturia increases with age; specific estimates of prevalence are influenced by frequency thresholds used to define it.

Nocturia in female patients: Current clinical features, treatment patterns and outcomes at a tertiary referral centre.

Objective: To report the current clinical features, treatment patterns and outcomes of female patients who were seen at a tertiary referral centre with a primary diagnosis of nocturia, and to assess the predictive factors of therapeutic management failure.

The Association Between Obesity and the Nocturia in the U.S. Population.

We aimed to investigate the association of obesity with nocturia using a nationally representative sample of adults from the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES) between 2005 and 2012.

Effect of Nocturnal Hypoxia on Nocturia in Patients With Obstructive Sleep Apnea.

To identify the association between nocturia and obstructive sleep apnea (OSA), we compared results of polysomnography (PSG) with the presence or absence of nocturia in patients with suspected OSA.

Patients underwent PSG for suspected OSA.

Future Considerations in Nocturia and Nocturnal Polyuria.

Nocturnal polyuria (NP), the most common etiology of nocturia, can be caused by various medical conditions, including cardiovascular disease, obstructive sleep apnea, renal tubular dysfunction, as well as medications (e.

Metabolomics analysis of blood identifies potential biomarkers and possible treatment targets for nocturia.

Our aim was to investigate the association between serum metabolites and nocturia.

A total of 66 males aged 65-80 years were enrolled in this study and stratified according to micturition behavior, which was characterized in terms of the 24 h frequency volume chart (FVC) for 3 consecutive days, the International Prostate Symptom Score (IPSS), and quality-of-life score.

Urinary Incontinence and Nocturia in Older Men: Associations with Body Mass, Composition, and Strength in the Health, Aging, and Body Composition Study.

Among younger men, lower body mass is associated with fewer urinary symptoms, including incontinence and nocturia. However, lower body mass may have different implications for older men due to age-associated muscle atrophy and decreased strength.

Comparison of nocturia etiology in black and white male patients.

Much of what is known about the etiology of nocturia (i.e., nocturnal polyuria [NP], small bladder capacity [SBC], etc.) at the population level stems from the Krimpen study, which enrolled aging males from a homogenous municipality in the Netherlands.

Nocturnal voiding frequency does not describe nocturia-related bother.

Nocturia frequency has been used as a measure of treatment efficacy for nocturia even though fluctuation of the symptom over time has been well described in the literature. Additionally, given the multifactorial causal pathway and clinically relevant comorbidities, frequency alone may be an insufficient marker of treatment direction.

Metabolic syndrome and smoking are associated with persistence of nocturia after transurethral resection of the prostate.

The aim of our study was to evaluate the relationship between smoking, metabolic syndrome (MetS) and persistence of nocturia in patients with moderate/severe nocturia (nocturia episodes ≥2), lower urinary tract symptoms (LUTSs), and benign prostatic enlargement (BPE) undergoing transurethral resection of the prostate (TURP).

Development of the Nocturia Sleep Quality Scale: a patient-reported outcome measure of sleep impact related to nocturia.

Nocturia's impact on sleep causes significant burden for patients. This study aimed to develop a novel patient-reported outcome (PRO) measure, the Nocturia Sleep Quality Scale (NSQS), for the assessment of the impact of nocturia (defined as ≥2 nocturnal voids/night) on sleep.

Desmopressin for treating nocturia in patients with multiple sclerosis: A systematic review: A report from the Neuro-Urology Promotion Committee of the International Continence Society (ICS).

To systematically assess all available evidence on efficacy and safety of desmopressin for treating nocturia in patients with multiple sclerosis (MS).

This systematic review was performed according to the Preferred Reporting Items for Systematic Reviews and Meta-Analyses (PRISMA) statement.
