Enuresis is a common problem in children. One treatment option is a wetting alarm which provides an alarm when incontinence occurs. A drawback of this approach is that the child is still awaken by wet sheets. Recently, a wearable, wireless ultrasonic bladder sensor became available, the SENS-U, which has the potential to prevent the enuretic event by waking up the child before the bladder is full. In this first feasibility study, the aim is to perform a night-time, home-based evaluation of the SENS-U in children with monosymptomatic enuresis (MNE).

AbstractPurpose of ReviewNeurogenic bladder is a common condition and top health priority present in 20 –70% of patients with neurologic diseases including multiple sclerosis (MS), Parkinson’s disease (PD), spinal cord injury (SCI), and cerebrovascular accidents (CVA). Current gold-standard medications for overactive bladder (OAB), such as anti-muscarinics, have undesirable side effects, or have l imited data in neurogenic patients. Combining therapy for urinary urge incontinence (UUI) has shown the potential to increase efficacy while maintaining or improving tolerability of treatment. Our objective was to rev...

Authors: Middleton T, Ellsworth P Abstract Introduction: Non-neurogenic urinary incontinence in children is a common condition that affects the quality of life for both patients and parents. Symptoms may occur in the daytime, nighttime, or both and may be the result of structural and functional anomalies. Evaluation and management of associated co-morbidities, such as constipation is critical to management. Behavioral therapy is a fist line therapy in most cases of non-neurogenic urinary incontinence and pharmacologic therapy a second-line therapy. Areas covered: In this review, the authors cover the pharmacologic ...
