To evaluate the validity of the Medication Adherence Self-Report Inventory (MASRI) questionnaire in determining antimuscarinic drugs adherence in patients with urinary incontinence (UI).
In all, 629 patients [355 (56.
Aim: To describe treatment patterns in Denmark, Norway and Sweden for patients receiving overactive bladder (OAB) pharmacotherapy. Methods: This was a prospective, multinational, registry-based study involving three nationwide prescribed drug registries (sample size 6000 patients per country), performed between 1 January and 30 June 2014.
Pharmacotherapy of overactive bladder (OAB) typically involves treatment with an antimuscarinic or mirabegron, a β3-adrenoceptor agonist, but real-world evidence on their use, including treatment access, persistence, and switching, is limited.
To assess treatment persistence and adherence in men ≥45 years of age with lower urinary tract symptoms (LUTS) associated with benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH), using prescription records from the Netherlands IMS Lifelink™ LRx database.
Although antimuscarinics form the first-line therapy in overactive bladder (OAB), little is known regarding antimuscarinic discontinuation among OAB patients in nursing homes. This study examined treatment patterns and predictors of antimuscarinic discontinuation among long-term nursing home (LTNH) residents with OAB.
BERKELEY, CA (UroToday.com) - Overactive bladder (OAB) is a disturbance of bladder filling/storage and has been defined by the International Continence Society as “a symptom syndrome consisting of urgency with or without urge urinary incontinence, often associated with urinary frequency and nocturia.”
This study was conducted to compare overactive bladder (OAB) prevalence among people greater than 60 years of age who intake various doses of caffeine, as well as those who abstain from caffeine.
A randomized observational study was carried out in Vladivostok Gerontological Hospital.
Overactive bladder (OAB) and urgency incontinence are common in older people. Nevertheless, there remains a paucity of prospectively collected data on the efficacy of commonly used drug treatments for the condition.
Neurogenic lower urinary tract dysfunction (NLUTD) is commonly encountered in rehabilitation settings, and is caused by a variety of pathologies.
Patient-reported outcomes (PROs) provide valuable insights about the effectiveness of overactive bladder (OAB) treatments. The aim of PERSPECTIVE (a Prospective, non-intErventional Registry Study of PatiEnts initiating a Course of drug Therapy for overactIVE bladder) was to provide real-world evidence from the USA and Canada on patient-perceived effectiveness and safety of mirabegron and antimuscarinics for treating OAB symptoms.
Evaluation of the executive function and working memory influence, as well as the general state of memory, on adherence to treatment with antimuscarinic drugs in elderly women with overactive bladder (OAB).
No previous studies have investigated the efficacy of mirabegron 50 mg as the first-line therapy in OAB patients. Hence, the primary objective of this study was to evaluate the efficacy of mirabegron in treatment-naive patients in comparison with those who had discontinued antimuscarinic therapy because of insufficient efficacy.
Mirabegron is established as an alternative monotherapy to antimuscarinics for the treatment of overactive bladder (OAB) symptoms. Initial studies focused on Western populations, but over the past few years other populations and subpopulations have been evaluated.
The nonspecific storage symptom complex overactive bladder (OAB) is an important clinical condition in functional urology. Until recently, pharmacological therapy comprised antimuscarinic drugs, but more recently beta 3 agonists have added to the available agents.
Treating male lower urinary tract symptoms (LUTS) by targeting the prostate would have limited effect on overactive bladder (OAB) symptoms. This study assessed perceived symptoms and quality of life (QoL) of male patients with OAB treated with an α-blocker plus solifenacin in daily clinical practice.
The objective of this project was to evaluate treatment persistence in patients being treated for overactive bladder syndrome (OAB) with mirabegron, employing clinical follow-up in a prospective, multicenter study.
To evaluate persistence rates of patients receiving mirabegron therapy for overactive bladder (OAB) within our institution over a 6 month period, identify determinants of early discontinuation of therapy, and assess overall patient satisfaction with treatment.
The role of the selective antimuscarinic imidafenacin in Caucasian patients with overactive bladder (OAB) has not been previously assessed.
To evaluate the safety and efficacy of imidafenacin 0.
Nocturia is a common urinary symptom of multiple sclerosis (MS) which can affect quality of life (QoL) adversely. Melatonin is a hormone known to regulate circadian rhythm and reduce smooth muscle activity such as in the bladder.
Urgency is the prevalent and most bothersome symptom of overactive bladder (OAB) and the treatment of urgency is the primary objective in the management of OAB. Urgency has a major impact on other symptoms of OAB and culminates in an increased frequency of micturition and reduced volume voided, which may contribute to shorter intervals between the need to void.
