Overactive Bladder

Digital health information on surgical treatment options for overactive bladder is underrepresented.

Digital health information gains growing importance in the medical landscape. Despite its opportunities, there is a risk of patient misinformation which may adversely influence the patient-physician relationship.

One treatment with onabotulinumtoxinA relieves symptoms of overactive bladder in patients refractory to one or more oral medications.

Patients with overactive bladder (OAB) often undergo prolonged treatment with one or more oral OAB medications. OnabotulinumtoxinA (onabotA), a type A botulinum toxin, may provide an appropriate alternative to oral treatments in patients intolerant of or refractory to one or more oral OAB medications.

Vibegron 50 mg Once Daily Improves OABSS, OAB-q SF Score in OAB Patients ≥80 Years Old in Real-World Clinical Settings and Switching from Other OAB Drugs May Reduce Residual Urine Volume.

The treatment effects of vibegron have not previously been evaluated in a prospective, non-interventional observational study of elderly Japanese patients, particularly those ≥80 years old. In addition, no reports have referred to residual urine volume in switching cases.

Adherence to Overactive Bladder Syndrome Treatments Recent Developments and Future Perspectives.

Overactive bladder (OAB) is a common and distressing condition which is known to have a significant effect on Health-Related Quality of Life (HRQoL). Whilst all patients complaining of overactive bladder symptoms will, in theory, initially benefit from conservative measures, many will require pharmacological therapy.

Assessment of Codispensing Patterns of Mirabegron and Prespecified CYP2D6 Substrates in Patients with Overactive Bladder.

Patients with overactive bladder (OAB) experience sudden, intense urges to urinate, which may include urge urinary incontinence and nocturia. Pharmacotherapy includes β3-adrenergic receptor agonists such as mirabegron; however, mirabegron contains a label warning for cytochrome P450 (CYP) 2D6 inhibition, making coadministration with CYP2D6 substrates require monitoring and dose adjustment to avoid unintended increases in substrate concentration.

The Investigation of Percutaneous Tibial Nerve Stimulation (PTNS) as a Minimally Invasive, Non-Surgical, Non-Hormonal Treatment for Overactive Bladder Symptoms.

Overactive bladder (OAB) syndrome affects 10-15% of women, severely impacting their quality of life. First-line treatments include behavioural and physical therapy, and second-line medical treatments include medications such as vaginal oestrogen, anticholinergic medications, and ß3-adrenergic agonists-with potential adverse side effects including dizziness, constipation, and delirium, particularly affecting elderly populations.

Differences in the Urinary Microbiome of Patients with Overactive Bladder Syndrome with and without Detrusor Overactivity on Urodynamic Measurements.

It has been hypothesized that the urinary microbiome might play an important role in OAB. Studies have been conducted on the association between OAB symptoms and the microbiome, although a possible causality still has to be determined.

Retrospective Observational Study of Treatment Patterns and Efficacy of onabotulinumtoxinA Therapy in Patients with Refractory Overactive Bladder in Clinical Practice.

This study aimed to evaluate the treatment patterns and long-term efficacy of onabotulinumtoxinA injections in a clinical setting. This single-center retrospective study was conducted on patients with refractory overactive bladder (OAB) aged 18 years or older who received onabotulinumtoxinA 100 IU administered between April 2012 and May 2022.

Inequities in Filled Overactive Bladder Medication Prescriptions in the US.

Anticholinergic medications to treat overactive bladder (OAB) have been associated with increased risk of cognitive decline, whereas β3-adrenoceptor agonists (hereafter, β3-agonists) have comparable efficacy and do not carry the same risk.

Analysis of Urinary Retention Caused by Selective β 3-adrenoceptor Agonists Using the Japanese Adverse Drug Event Report Database (JADER).

Overactive bladder (OAB) is a frequent chronic disorder which impairs quality of life by frequent, uncontrollable urination. Newly developed selectiveβ 3-adrenoceptor agonists (sβ 3-agonists) have the same efficacy in treating OAB but significantly fewer side effects than the traditionally used anti-muscarinics.
