Overactive bladder syndrome treatments

Summary

Overactive bladder syndrome treatments

An OAB occurs when the bladder squeezes (contracts) suddenly without you having control and when the bladder is not full. OAB syndrome is a common condition even if no cause can be found. Often two types of treatments can be helpful: Endoscopic hydrostatic distention of bladder is a Telescopic inspection of the bladder, over-distension of the bladder and possible bladder biopsy or removal of abnormal areas using diathermy. Stretching of the bladder is usually done to make the bladder less sensitive in patients with overactive bladder (OAB) syndrome. The other option may be a Botox injection into bladder wall. This involves injecting botulinum toxin into the wall of the bladder using a telescope inserted under local anaesthetic, to overcome the effects of an overactive bladder.
