AbstractThis post hoc Poisson regression analysis investigated the relationship between mean volume voided and incontinence episodes/24 h after fixed frequency adjustment in children with overactive bladder from the LION study, a phase 3, double-blind, randomised, placebo-controlled, sequential, dose-titration solifenacin trial. Patients were aged 5–
Background Lower urinary tract symptoms in women including urinary incontinence and overactive bladder are common women’s health conditions with negative financial, health, and quality of life consequences. Certain behaviors are associated with symptom presentation. Identifying and modifying these behaviors could decrease symptom presentation and progression. The Toileting Behaviors: Women’s Elimination Behaviors (TB-WEB) scale is the only known theory-based tool to date designed to assess urinary toileting behaviors in women. It has been validated in middle-aged women, but it has not been validated in a youn...

ConclusionsThe Brazilian Portuguese version of the ICIQ-OABqol shows satisfactory psychometric properties and can be used to evaluate the quality of life of individuals of both sexes with OAB symptoms.
ConclusionDescriptions of bladder sensations associated with nocturia in women with OAB were diverse and overlapping. It is important to report clinically and in research why patients have nocturia as this will have bearing on its treatment.
The objective of this analysis is to determine if the IPSS storage score (sum of the punctuation of the questions 2, 4 and 7) could be a predictive variable of the impact on quality of life. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Post-hoc analysis of an epidemiological, multicenter, cross-sectional study inmale patients, ≥18 years old with ≥6 micturitions and≥1 urgency and/or ≥2 nocturia and/or ≥1 daily incontinence episodes recruited by 291 urologists across Spain. Socio demographic variables, symptoms reported by patients (IPSS) and clinical variables were collected. The impact of voiding symptoms (IPSS-V) and storage...
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.
Overactive bladder syndrome (OAB) is defined by the International Continence Society (ICS) as a clinical syndrome characterized by urinary urgency, usually accompanied by frequency and nocturia, with or without urgency urinary incontinence, in the absence of urinary tract infection or other obvious pathology . Its prevalence is higher in women than in men and increases with advancing age . In Brazil, Moreira et al., in 2013, found a prevalence of OAB of 5.1% in males and 10% in females among adults, and in the elderly, a prevalence of 78% in males and 82% in females.
The objective this study is to publish the study protocol that aims to investigate whether urgency decreases after treatment with both of the techniques.MethodsThis randomized controlled clinical trial will include 99 women, aged more than 18 years old, with urgency (score ≥ 8 in the Overactive Bladder-Validated 8-Question Awareness Tool [OAB-V8]). Women will be randomly allocated into three groups: TTNS, PTES, and placebo. The following questionnaires will be applied: the Anamnesis Record, the Incontinence Questionnaire Overact ive Bladder, the King’s Health Questionnaire, the 24-Hour Voidin...
