"Swallow my Urine Back" : Inhibition of Detrusor Overactivity by Swallowing Maneuver
The purpose of this study is to find out whether swallowing has an effect on the degree of urinary urgency and on the amplitude of detrusor contraction during filling cystometry in patients with detrusor overactivity (DO).
|Study Design:||Observational Model: Cohort
Time Perspective: Prospective
|Official Title:||"Swallow my Urine Back" : Inhibition of Detrusor Overactivity by Swallowing Maneuver|
|Study Start Date:||April 2011|
|Study Completion Date:||July 2011|
|Primary Completion Date:||July 2011 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)|
Consecutive patients with DO will be included in this study. During urodynamics, the amplitude of the waves of DO will be documented and compared. At the beginning of the 2nd wave, patients will be asked to perform 5 repetitive swallows. Following each wave, patients will be asked to grade the severity of the urgency by a visual analogue scale (VAS).
