Urinary Incontinence clinical trials at UC Health

10 in progress, 7 open to eligible people

Showing trials for
  • A Group-Based Therapeutic Yoga Intervention for Urinary Incontinence in Ambulatory Older Women

    open to eligible females ages 45 years and up

    The investigators will conduct a randomized controlled trial to evaluate the efficacy of a group-based yoga intervention to decrease the frequency and impact of urinary incontinence in ambulatory middle-aged and older women and explore potential mediators of improvement in outcomes. Women aged 45 years and older who report daily or more frequent stress-, urgency-, or mixed-type incontinence, are not already engaged in formal yoga or muscle stretching/strengthening programs, are willing to temporarily forgo other clinical treatments for incontinence, are able to walk to and use the bathroom without assistance, and meet other eligibility criteria will be recruited from multiple locations surrounding the San Francisco Bay area.

  • Adaptive Design Study of Autologous Muscle Derived Cells Compared to Placebo for Female Urinary Sphincter Repair

    open to eligible females ages 50-75

    This study evaluates the efficacy and safety of Autologous Muscle Derived Cells for Urinary Sphincter Repair (AMDC-USR) compared to a placebo in the treatment of stress urinary incontinence (SUI) in adult female patients. Half of the participants will receive AMDC-USR (injections with cells) and the other half will receive placebo.

  • An Educational Video to Improve Patient Comprehension of Midurethral Sling

    open to eligible females ages 18 years and up

    The purpose of this research project is to test the effectiveness of a previsit educational video designed to help women understand the risks and benefits of a midurethral sling for treatment of stress urinary incontinence. A total of 38 participants will be recruited from both the Urogynecology pre-operative clinic of the university of California, Irvine Medical Center and the Urogynecology pre-operative clinic at Kaiser Permanente, Anaheim and Orange County. Participants will be randomized either to watch a 10 minute educational video (intervention group) or read a standard handout describing the midurethral sling (control group). Participants will then complete their pre-operative visit in the usual fashion. Participants will complete a pre- and post- intervention knowledge questionnaire to assess the primary outcome (change in knowledge before and after intervention). Participants will repeat the knowledge questionnaire and complete validated questionnaires for satisfaction with decision scale and decision regret at 2 and 6 weeks post-operative.

  • Ancillary Study of the Lessening Incontinence With Low-impact Activity Study

    open to eligible females ages 50 years and up

    The parent trial that supports this ancillary research is a randomized controlled trial to evaluate the efficacy of a group-based yoga intervention to decrease the frequency and impact of urinary incontinence in ambulatory middle-aged and older women. Women aged 50 years and older who report daily or more frequent stress-, urgency-, or mixed-type incontinence, are not already engaged in formal yoga or muscle stretching/strengthening programs, are willing to temporarily forgo other clinical treatments for incontinence, are able to walk to and use the bathroom without assistance, and meet other eligibility criteria are being recruited from multiple locations surrounding the San Francisco Bay area. Following a series of telephone- and then clinic-based screening assessments, including a voiding diary to confirm the frequency and clinical type of incontinence, eligible women are randomized in a 1:1 ratio to participate in either a 3-month yoga program (N~110) or a time-equivalent, non-specific muscle stretching and strengthening control program (N~110). During the 3-month intervention period, participants participate in structured intervention programs (either yoga-specific or muscle stretching-strengthening) consisting of twice weekly, 90-minute group classes led by trained instructors). They are also be instructed to practice their assigned intervention for at least an additional hour per week, with the assistance of participant manuals created by the study team and a set of home yoga or stretching/strengthening exercise props. For this ancillary trial research, the investigators are examining ancillary measures of a) physical performance status, b)perceived stress, depression, and anxiety symptoms, and c) sleep quality, duration, and continuity, already incorporated by the principal investigator into the parent trial. The investigators will examine prospective relationships between these ancillary measures and participant-reported urinary incontinence frequency/severity/impact, examine intervention effects on these ancillary outcomes, and assess the extent to which these ancillary outcomes mediate intervention effects on incontinence frequency/severity/impact.

  • CAN-Stim Compared to SNS in Treatment of Urinary Urgency Incontinence With Wireless Neuromodulation Technology

    open to eligible people ages 18 years and up

    This is a prospective, randomized, controlled, multi-center, study in which 150 evaluable subjects will be randomized 1:1 to receive either a Protect CAN-Stim or SNS InterStim® system. Subjects from both groups will immediately start with therapy. The primary endpoint is a ≥ 50% reduction in number of incontinence episodes associated with urgency at the 3-month visit, with additional measurements assessed at 14 days, 1, 6, 9 and 12-months.

  • Gentamicin Intravesical Efficacy for Infection of Urinary Tract

    open to eligible females ages 18 years and up

    Urinary tract infection (UTI) is a common problem after surgery for pelvic organ prolapse and stress urinary incontinence. This prospective, randomized, single-masked (subject), two-parallel armed study aims to determine the effect of a single postoperative intravesical instillation of 80 mg of gentamicin sulfate in 50 mL of saline versus usual care on the proportion of women treated for UTI within 6 weeks following surgery for pelvic organ prolapse (POP) or stress urinary incontinence (SUI).

  • Sling vs Botox for Mixed Incontinence

    open to eligible females ages 21 years and up

    The primary aim is to compare the effectiveness of intradetrusor injection of 100 unit injection of Botulinum toxin A to mid-urethral sling for change in MUI symptoms 6 months following treatment.

  • Axonics SacRal NeuromodulaTIon System for Urinary Urgency Incontinence TreatmeNt

    Sorry, in progress, not accepting new patients

    The ARTISAN-SNM study is designed to evaluate the safety and effectiveness of the Axonics Sacral Neuromodulation System as an aid in the treatment of the symptoms of urinary urgency incontinence (UUI) in patients who have failed or could not tolerate more conservative treatments.

  • Fistula Reintegration Pilot

    Sorry, not yet accepting patients

    This is a pilot study to test the feasibility and acceptability of a multi-component facility-based intervention designed to be provided adjunct to genital fistula surgery incorporating: health education, psychosocial counseling, physiotherapy, and economic investment. We will include a total of 30 women in the study, and follow them for 6-months using a mixed-methods strategy for feasibility and acceptability assessment.

  • Study of Macroplastique Safety and Effectiveness in the Treatment of Female Stress Urinary Incontinence

    Sorry, in progress, not accepting new patients

    The ROSE Registry will determine the long-term safety and effectiveness of Macroplastique in the treatment of female stress urinary incontinence (SUI) due to intrinsic sphincter deficiency (ISD).
