Safety And Efficacy Of Solifenacin In Men With Overactive Bladder (OAB) And Detrusor Underactivity

2014-08-27 03:39:52 | BioPortfolio


Detrusor underactivity (DUA) in men is responsible for LUTS in a significant minority, the symptoms being indistinguishable from those seen in BOO. The International Continence Society (ICS) defines DUA as 'a detrusor contraction of inadequate magnitude and/or duration to effect complete bladder emptying in the absence of urethral obstruction. Whilst a reduced maximum urinary flow rate (Qmax) is indicative of voiding dysfunction, flow studies cannot distinguish between DUA and BOO, which are the two principal causes of low flow rates. DUA is diagnosed from a pressure-flow study (PFS)and is characterized by a low-pressure, poorly sustained, or wave-like detrusor contraction with an associated poor flow rate.

Overactive bladder (OAB) is the most common term currently used in clinical medicine to describe a complex of lower urinary tract symptoms (LUTS) with or without incontinence but most commonly consisting of urgency, frequency, nocturia, troublesome or incomplete emptying,and, occasionally, pain. With the exception of pain and incontinence, these symptoms are often found together; thus, the term LUTS has come to replace previous terms, such as urgency-frequency syndrome,urethral syndrome, and prostatism.

Drug treatment is frequently used as the initial management approach for LUTS in older men.Among men who desire treatment, general practice prescribing data have shown that antimuscarinics are not often given to elderly men. There is theoretical concern that the inhibitory effect of antimuscarinics on detrusor contraction could aggravate voiding difficulties or cause urinary retention in patients with BOO. There are virtually no data evaluating the safety and efficacy of solifenacin treatment in men with DUA and OAB.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Symptom of overactive detrusor muscle of the URINARY BLADDER that contracts with abnormally high frequency and urgency. Overactive bladder is characterized by the frequent feeling of needing to urinate during the day, during the night, or both. URINARY INCONTINENCE may or may not be present.

Symptoms of disorders of the lower urinary tract including frequency, NOCTURIA; urgency, incomplete voiding, and URINARY INCONTINENCE. They are often associated with OVERACTIVE BLADDER; URINARY INCOMPETENCE; and INTERSTITIAL CYSTITIS. Lower urinary tract symptoms in males were traditionally called PROSTATISM.

A HERNIA-like condition in which the weakened pelvic muscles cause the URINARY BLADDER to drop from its normal position. Fallen urinary bladder is more common in females with the bladder dropping into the VAGINA and less common in males with the bladder dropping into the SCROTUM.

Involuntary discharge of URINE as a result of physical activities that increase abdominal pressure on the URINARY BLADDER without detrusor contraction or overdistended bladder. The subtypes are classified by the degree of leakage, descent and opening of the bladder neck and URETHRA without bladder contraction, and sphincter deficiency.

An abnormal passage in the URINARY BLADDER or between the bladder and any surrounding organ.
