Management of Overactive Bladder in the Young Man

AbstractPurpose of ReviewIn this review, the current literature regarding idiopathic overactive bladder (OAB) in the young male will be discussed. We will also share the unique experience of providers at a single military institution in treating this specific patient population and their recommendations based on the unique etiologies, comorbidities, and treatment response and adherence.Recent FindingsDespite several studies addressing idiopathic OAB and providing the basis for existing guidelines, none offer guidance on how this syndrome affects a younger male population in whom OAB is less likely to be due to an obstructive etiology, nor is there guidance on the optimal approach to efficient assessment and management in this patient population.SummaryAdherence to the American Urological Association guidelines with more liberal use of adjunctive diagnostic measures with early escalation of therapy when symptoms are not adequately controlled may expedite OAB symptom management more appropriately in young men. Prospective studies focusing on OAB treatment in this patient population are needed to better understand and better treat OAB in this patient population.

Doesn’t it seem like Botox is showing up everywhere as a medical treatment? Botox is a brand of botulinum neurotoxin (BoNT), a protein substance originally derived from the bacterium Clostridium botulinum. In its original form it was the toxin responsible for botulism, the paralyzing illness often caused by eating contaminated food. BoNT is now used to treat a number of medical conditions including muscle spasms, excessive sweating, overactive bladder, and some eye muscle conditions. However, one of its most common uses is in the preventive treatment of chronic migraine. Chronic migraine, defined as headache occurrin...

Abstract Aim: 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). Background: Antimuscarinic are effective and safe for the treatment of OAB, but adherence to treatment remains low. Demographic, socioeconomic, and medical factors which influence the medication adherence have been explored; however, the impact of executive function and working memory on adherence has not been evaluated yet. Methods: In total 417 women from 65 to 88 years old with the di...
