Pilot Trial in Sleep Laboratory Setting to Compare the Physiology of Night Time Bladder Function in Subjects With Overactive Bladder (OAB) Versus Subjects That Have Insomnia and Healthy Normal Subjects

This is an observational, physiology pilot study of subjects with overactive bladder, insomnia and normal subjects. No study drug will be given. All subjects will complete a one week slee...

Evaluation of the Link Between Bladder Sensation and Changes in Skin Electrical Conductance and Heart Rate.

Measuring sympathetic skin response or heart rate variability can provide an objective biomarker of bladder sensation and its modulation by drug with potential to treat overactive bladder.

Reproductibility of Cystometry in Multiple Sclerosis Patient

This study evaluates the reproductibility (quantitative and qualitative) of cystometry in mutiple sclerosis patients.

Automated Embedded Polysomnography (AEP)

To develop and validate a reliable automatic analysis of the signals recorded during a polysomnography.

Feasibility of Unattended Home Polysomnography and Comparison to In-laboratory Polysomnography in Pediatric Patients

The purpose of the study is: 1) To assess the feasibility of unmonitored polysomnography and 2) to compare apnea hypopnea index (AHI), average SPO2, and SPO2 nadir between unmonitored poly...

FAM83H-AS1 is associated with clinical progression and modulates cell proliferation, migration, and invasion in bladder cancer.

FAM83H-AS1, also known as oncogenic long noncoding RNA (lncRNA)-3, is a novel lncRNA that has been suggested to be dysregulated in a variety of human cancers. However, the expression status and functi...

Diabetes-induced alterations in urothelium function:enhanced ATP release and nerve-evoked contractions in the streptozotocin rat bladder.

Up to 80% of patients with diabetes mellitus develop lower urinary tract complications, most commonly diabetic bladder dysfunction (DBD). The aim of this study was to investigate the impact of diabete...

Variation in cardiovascular risk related to individual antimuscarinic drugs used to treat overactive bladder. A cohort study in the UK.

Blocking muscarinic receptors could have an effect upon cardiac function, especially among elderly patients with overactive bladder (OAB).

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

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.

Blocked urine flow through the bladder neck, the narrow internal urethral opening at the base of the URINARY BLADDER. Narrowing or strictures of the URETHRA can be congenital or acquired. It is often observed in males with enlarged PROSTATE glands.

A birth defect in which the URINARY BLADDER is malformed and exposed, inside out, and protruded through the ABDOMINAL WALL. It is caused by closure defects involving the top front surface of the bladder, as well as the lower abdominal wall; SKIN; MUSCLES; and the pubic bone.
