Correlation between overactive bladder symptom score and neuropsychological parameters in Alzheimer’s disease patients with lower urinary tract symptom
ABSTRACT Purpose To examine an association between the overactive bladder symptom score (OABSS) and neuropsychological parameters. Moreover, we investigate the factors that affect each item in the questionnaire. Materials and Methods A total of 376 patients (males: 184; females: 192) with probable Alzheimer ’ s disease (AD) were recruited. Cognitive testing was conducted using the Mini Mental Status Examination (MMSE), Clinical Dementia Rating (CDR) scale, Global Deterioration Scale (GDS), and Barthel Activities of Daily Living (ADL). Lower urinary tract symptom (LUTS) was assessed using OABSS and voiding diary. Results The prevalence of overactive bladder (OAB) (defined as OABSS ≥ 3 with an urgency score of ≥ 2) in patients with AD was 72.6%. Among the OAB subjects, the most common severity of symptom was moderate (72.6%), followed by mild (21.2%), and severe (5.8%). It was found that OABSS had a very high correlation with aging (r=0.75; p
Authors: Shabataev V, Saadat SH, Elterman DS Abstract The two major long-term concerns associated with different options for the management of prostate cancer, (including surgery, radiotherapy, brachytherapy, cryotherapy, HIFU, etc.) include difficulties with lower urinary tract symptoms (LUTS) and/or erectile dysfunction. LUTS can be in the form of stress urinary incontinence (SUI), urge urinary incontinence (UUI), frequency/urgency, and/or voiding difficulties. While surgery is mostly associated with SUI and radiation mostly results in UUI, there can be an overlap. Incontinence rates after cryotherapy and high in...
BACKGROUND: Acquired brain injury (ABI), such as Parkinson's disease, dementia or stroke, can result in communication difficulties that lead to an impoverished ability to connect meaningfully with others. Choral singing is a complex task that uses multiple...
To describe rate and risks for symptomatic and asymptomatic urinary retention requiring catheterization in women undergoing initial intravesical onabotulinumtoxinA (Botox) injection for urgency urinary incontinence (UUI).
Urinary urgency without incontinence, frequently referred to as “dry overactive bladder” is a poorly understood condition. Our aim was to investigate the relationship of clinical symptoms (urgency and pain) with urinary biomarkers of neuroinflammation in women with urinary urgency without incontinence.
To compare anal incontinence (AI) symptoms 3 months postpartum in women who sustain obstetric anal sphincter injuries (OASIS) and begin immediate vaginal electrical stimulation (VES) vs sham therapy.
As a result of the vaginal mesh controversy, surgeons are performing more non-mesh, autologous fascia pubovaginal slings to treat stress urinary incontinence in women. The rectus abdominis fascia is the most commonly harvested site for autologous pubovaginal slings, so it is crucial that surgeons are familiar with the relationship between this graft harvest site and the ilioinguinal and iliohypogastric nerves, which can be injured during this procedure. The aims of this study were to (1) estimate the safest area between the bilateral courses of the ilioinguinal and iliohypogastric nerves where a rectus abdominis fascia gra...
This study aims to determine the relationship of rigid catheter guide use during MUS placement on the incidence of cystotomy and to determine characteristics associated with and postoperative complications from incidental trocar injury.
We aimed to understand the reasons patients choose to and choose not to pursue third line overactive bladder (OAB) therapies (percutaneous tibial nerve stimulation, Onabotulism toxinA, and sacroneuromodulation).
We sought to assess knowledge of urinary incontinence (UI) and pelvic organ prolapse (POP) in an urban, underserved population of mainly Latina Spanish-speaking women.
To examine the effectiveness and patient satisfaction associated with the use of a 5-site intra-detrusor injection protocol of onabotulinumtoxin A among women with urgency urinary incontinence.
