Overactive Bladder clinical trials at UC Health
4 in progress, 1 open to new patients

  • Percutaneous Tibial Nerve Stimulation Maintenance: Monthly Therapy or Per Patient Requested Need

    open to eligible females ages 18 years and up

    The overall objective of this study is to compare the efficacy of the standard monthly maintenance therapy for percutaneous tibial nerve stimulation (PTNS), to sessions as the patient needs (prn) between 2 weeks and 12 weeks, based on overactive bladder symptoms. This is study is to help determine feasibility for conducting a larger trial that is appropriately powered to provide meaningful data.

  • Dysport® Treatment of Urinary Incontinence in Adults Subjects With Neurogenic Detrusor Overactivity (NDO) Due to Spinal Cord Injury or Multiple Sclerosis - Study 1

    Sorry, in progress, not accepting new patients

    The purpose of this study is to provide confirmatory evidence of the safety and efficacy of two Dysport® (AbobotulinumtoxinA) doses (600 units [U] and 800 U), compared to placebo in reducing urinary incontinence (UI) in adult subjects treated for neurogenic detrusor overactivity (NDO) due to spinal cord injury (SCI) or multiple sclerosis (MS).

  • Noninvasive Spinal Cord Stimulation for Neurogenic and Idiopathic Overactive Bladder

    Sorry, not yet accepting patients

    Overactive bladder (OAB) affects 12-30% of the world's population. The accompanying urinary urgency, urinary frequency and incontinence can impair the ability to work, interact in social activities and can result in poor social functioning. Multiple treatment modalities are available for overactive bladder. However, each therapy has drawbacks that limit its application in certain patient populations. For example, oral medications have significant side effects and suffer from poor adherence. Botulinum toxin injection into the bladder wall is invasive, requires re-treatment on a regular basis and carries a risk of urinary retention. Current neuromodulatory techniques are invasive and require highly-specialized care. Therefore, a need exists for a non-invasive, well-tolerated and easily administered therapy for OAB. Transcutaneous spinal cord stimulation (TSCS) has been developed and tested in able bodied individuals to initiate locomotor function as well as in the SCI population for lower extremity and upper extremity function. More recently, we have tested this SCI patients to enable lower urinary tract function and decrease detrusor overactivity, resulting in improved continence.

  • Trial of Maintenance Therapy With Posterior Tibial Nerve Stimulation for Overactive Bladder

    Sorry, currently not accepting new patients, but might later

    This study has 2 parts. Part 1 is a 12-week observational study of weekly Posterior Tibial Nerve Stimulation (PTNS) treatment for women with overactive bladder. Part 2 is a randomized, controlled trial of monthly maintenance PTNS therapy versus no therapy in subjects who were successfully treated by PTNS in Part 1. Part 1: 12-week observational study of weekly PTNS treatment. The primary aim of Part 1 is to determine the efficacy of a 12-week course of PTNS in the treatment of overactive bladder. Secondary aims are to determine the changes in voiding frequency and quality-of-life measures after the 12-week treatment. Part 2: Randomized, controlled study of monthly PTNS compared to no PTNS after 12-week treatment The primary aim is to determine time-to-failure after 12 weeks of PTNS in subjects who receive maintenance therapy compared to those who do not, in order to ascertain if there is a need for maintenance therapy after 12 weeks of PTNS. The investigators' secondary aims are to compare the long-term efficacy and quality of life impact in patient receiving maintenance PTNS compared to those that do not and to determine the efficacy of rescue maintenance PTNS in subjects who have symptom recurrence in the no maintenance therapy arm. Hypothesis: There will be no difference in time to failure between women randomized to monthly maintenance PTNS compared to no maintenance PTNS.
