Overactive Bladder clinical trials at UC Health
4 in progress, 1 open to eligible people

  • A Study of Oral vs Transdermal (through skin patch) Oxybutynin for Post-surgical Bladder Pain and Urgency in Children

    open to eligible people ages 4-8

    Bladder pain and urgency are common after bladder surgery. The objective is to determine if transdermal administration is superior to oral administration in alleviating pain and urgency.

  • BOTOX® Intravesical Instillation in Participants With Overactive Bladder and Urinary Incontinence

    Sorry, not currently recruiting here

    This study will evaluate the efficacy and safety of BOTOX® intravesical instillation in participants with overactive bladder and urinary incontinence.

  • 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.
