ConclusionsThe Polish version of the OABSS is a reliable tool for females suffering from UI. However, OABSS does not distinguish patients with MUI from patients with OAB.

This article really demonstrated and did a very nice job in separating out the different types of anticholinergic medications and, specifically, the anticholinergic medications to treat overactive bladder, which is the primary pharmacological intervention that we have," Noblett said. The researchers analyzed the data by type of burden and level of burden (low, medium, high) and found that the risk of dementia, even in the low burden, went up by 19% and in the high burden was up by 60%.  "And those were just for patients with the overactive bladder anticholinergic,&q...

ConclusionsMost patients with OAB and normal PVR complain of OVS which may increase the burden on their QoL and sexual function. Some OVS correlate with various segments of the UDI-6 and IIQ-7 questionnaires, suggesting that storage and OVS may share common pathophysiological mechanisms.

AbstractNeuromodulation encompassing sacral and peripheral modalities is an established, effective, and safe higher-order treatment option approved in the USA for managing refractory overactive bladder, non-obstructive urinary retention, and fecal incontinence. This review highlights the most recent literature, indications, treatment durability, and the latest innovations in this field. Regarding sacral neuromodulation (SNM), recent work suggests improved parameters for optimal lead placement, increased data to support the lasting effects of treatment, and novel applications of this technology to other pelvic disorders. In...

Abstract Dysfunction of the lower urinary tract (LUT) is prevalent in neurological disorders, including multiple sclerosis, stroke, spinal cord injury and neurodegenerative conditions. Common symptoms include urgency, incontinence, and urinary retention. Recent advances in neuromodulation have resulted in improved treatments for overactive bladder symptoms of urgency, frequency, and nocturia. However, there are presently no treatments available for the induction of voiding to overcome urinary retention. We demonstrate that transcutaneous spinal cord stimulation (TSCS), a non-invasive intervention, applied over the...
