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 sleep diary and a 3-day bladder diary. After one week, subjects meeting eligibility requirements will complete a single sleep night stay in a sleep laboratory setting. During the sleep night stay, subjects will be evaluated using cystometry and polysomnography. In the morning following the sleep night stay, subjects will complete a sleep questionnaire and this will complete their participation in the study.

This is an observational, pilot, non-treatment study to evaluate and develop clinical variables for distinguishing female OAB subjects that have detrusor overactivity positive (DO+) noctur...
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.
This study evaluates the reproductibility (quantitative and qualitative) of cystometry in mutiple sclerosis patients.
To develop and validate a reliable automatic analysis of the signals recorded during a polysomnography.
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...
BACKGROUND Changes in expression and activity of ion channels are important pathophysiological mechanisms underlying detrusor overactivity (DO) in partial bladder outlet obstruction (PBOO). The object...
Urinary bladder dysfunction in the form of acontractile/hypocontractile bladder is very common after spinal cord injury and it may lead to recurrent urinary tract infection (UTI), stones formation, an...
Our objective was to investigate and compare bladder function in rats assessed by metabolic cage and by urodynamic measurements in fully awake animals.
The role of glycosaminoglycans (GAGs) as key components of the protective bladder barrier is well accepted. Replenishment of the GAG layer could restore the normal protective barrier function of the d...
Overactive bladder is a chronic condition affecting lower urinary tract function that has a significant negative impact on QoL.
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.
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.
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.
Sleep disorders disrupt sleep during the night, or cause sleepiness during the day, caused by physiological or psychological factors. The common ones include snoring and sleep apnea, insomnia, parasomnias, sleep paralysis, restless legs syndrome, circa...
