Development of Novel Cystometrics for Overactive Bladder

Development of Novel Cystometrics for Overactive Bladder

Urinary urgency is the key symptom of overactive bladder (OAB). A critical barrier in understanding OAB is the lack of a method to separate urgency that derives directly from bladder filling or what we term "tension sensor output" and urgency that derives from abnormal brain interpretation. The central hypothesis is that measureable biomechanical parameters can directly affect the output (urgency) of the detrusor tension sensor. The development of novel cystometric tests for the improved diagnosis and treatment of OAB and for the potential identification of novel mechanistic targets in the pathophysiology of OAB.
