bladder botox

What proportion of patients who initiate bladder botox as a treatment for overactive bladder continue treatment. What are factors associated with continuing the treatment?

Scientific Questions Being Studied

What proportion of patients who initiate bladder botox as a treatment for overactive bladder continue treatment. What are factors associated with continuing the treatment?

Project Purpose(s)

  • Disease Focused Research (overactive bladder)

Scientific Approaches

We will look at those patients with diagnosis of overactive bladder who have received botox therapy, and how many have undergone repeat injections. We will then do analysis to see any factors associated with continue botox use

Anticipated Findings

we anticipate that many patients will stop using botox after the first therapy.

Demographic Categories of Interest

This study will not center on underrepresented populations.

Scientific Questions Being Studied

Does vaginal estrogen prevent urinary tract infection in post-menopausal women? UTI is the most common bacterial infection and the most common hospital acquired infection. Postmenopausal women are at increased risk of UTI and this is thought to be due to estrogen deficiency. We are investigating whether there is an association between vaginal estrogen and decreased risk of urinary tract infection.

Project Purpose(s)

  • Disease Focused Research (acute cystitis)

Scientific Approaches

We plan to look at women with a diagnosis of genitourinary syndrome of menopause or vulvovaginal atrophy and see how many of them are on vaginal hormonal therapy. We will also investigate to see how many suffer from UTI and recurrent UTI. In addition - we will look at groups of women on therapy and those off therapy to see if there is a difference in infection incidence. We will collect demographic data to control for any confounders.

Anticipated Findings

We anticipate to find that vaginal estrogen does lower the risk of UTI. Currently, the body of scientific is lacking and there is some conflicting evidence.

Demographic Categories of Interest

This study will not center on underrepresented populations.
