PURPOSE We evaluated the efficacy of tolterodine extended release and/or tamsulosin on micturition related urgency episodes, urgency severity and patient reported outcomes in men who met entry criteria for prostatic enlargement and overactive bladder trials. MATERIALS AND METHODS Men 40 years old or older with an International Prostate Symptom Score of 12(More)
Overactive bladder is a highly prevalent condition, affecting approximately 33 million adults in the United States. Despite the considerable impact this condition has on patients' quality of life, overactive bladder remains underrecognized and undertreated as a result of patient embarrassment and reluctance to seek medical help, as well as a lack of(More)
AIMS OnabotulinumtoxinA significantly reduces urinary incontinence (UI) and improves bladder management in patients with neurogenic detrusor overactivity (NDO). We evaluated the impact of onabotulinumtoxinA on patient-reported outcomes (PROs) in patients with UI due to NDO in a double-blind, placebo-controlled study. METHODS Patients with UI due to NDO(More)
PURPOSE These are the final results of the prospective, multicenter, long-term (3.5-year) study of the efficacy/safety of onabotulinumtoxinA for overactive bladder syndrome. MATERIALS AND METHODS Patients who completed either of 2, 24-week phase 3 trials could enter a 3-year extension and continue treatment with onabotulinumtoxinA 100 U as needed to(More)
Despite the morbidity associated with anogenital condylomas and the mortality associated with anal, penile, and cervical carcinoma as a direct consequence of human papillomavirus (HPV), the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention currently does not recommend routine screening for HPV in immuno competent men. However, findings of emerging research(More)
Treatment with the antimuscarinic agents tolterodine and oxybutynin is the mainstay of therapy for overactive bladder, a chronic and debilitating condition characterized by urinary urgency with or without urge incontinence, usually in combination with urinary frequency and nocturia. This study consisted of two trials; in one, patients with overactive(More)
OBJECTIVES To evaluate the long-term effects of finasteride on symptoms, acute urinary retention (AUR), and the need for benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH)-related surgery in relationship to baseline symptom severity. METHODS A total of 3040 men with BPH were treated for 4 years with finasteride or placebo. The changes from baseline in symptoms and the(More)
Benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) is one of the most common diseases of aging men. It is estimated that by age 60 years, greater than 50% of men will have histologically documented evidence of the disease. Therapy for this disease has evolved considerably from its inception. Recent data from long-term population-based studies have shed new light on the(More)
Clinical evidence in men with erectile dysfunction (ED) shows that the phosphodiesterase type 5 (PDE5) inhibitors sildenafil citrate, tadalafil, and vardenafil hydrochloride have favorable safety and efficacy profiles. However, as mild vasodilators, the PDE5 inhibitors are also associated with hemodynamic effects that may be clinically significant,(More)
