2019-10-15 11:11:10 | BioPortfolio

Summary

The purpose of this study is to investigate the effect on the overactive bladder in women using a care protocol plus the application of microcurrent patches during 1 hours per session compared to the effect of the same protocol plus placebo electric stimulation.

Description

The design of this study is a multicentric, parallel, randomised, triple blind clinical trial with placebo control.

The size of the sample will be 56 participants who come to referral hospitals. They will be randomized in two groups: control or experimental.

The variables of the study will be collected at three time points: before the intervention, during the intervention and at the end of the intervention.

The statistical analysis will be an intention-to-treat analysis. For the main outcomes variables a two factor ANOVA will-be performed (intervention-time) with a post-hoc analysis with kruskal wallis correction correction. Statistical significance will be defined as p <0.05

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.
