Clinicians tend to focus on the number of voids, but patients worry more about interrupted sleep.
Two phase 3 placebo-controlled randomized trials show the formulation significantly prolongs the first uninterrupted sleep period and proportion of nights with 1 or fewer nocturic episodes.
Rather intermittent oxygen desaturation was associated with a 3% greater likelihood of nocturia.
More patients taking desmopressin decreased their nightly voiding episodes by half or more.
Clinicians' choice of treatment highly correlated with a diagnosis based on urodynamic studies.
At least half of women using tibial nerve stimulation or pelvic floor muscle training experienced fewer night awakenings, according to a new study.
Metabolic syndrome and smoking are associated with 2.5- and 1.7-fold increased odds of moderate or severe nocturia in men with BPH/LUTS.
In a study, men with sleep disorders were 23% and 27% more likely to report nocturia and daytime LUTS than men without sleep disorders.
At baseline, women reported an average of 3.9 urgency incontinence episodes per day and 1.3 episodes of nocturia per night.
Procedure partially blocks blood flow to the gland and appears to ease the need to urinate.
Overall, men with LUTS showed remarkably poor knowledge about their symptoms.
In a study, severe nocturia predicted increased mortality risk.
Increasing secretion of this hormone may prevent and treat the condition.
Keeping abreast of the most current treatments for idiopathic OAB can lead to improved outcomes and quality of life.
Two studies show significant reduction in number of nocturnal voids for women.
The prevalence and severity of nocturia, or awakening at least once at night to urinate, tends to increase with age.
Moderate nocturia may increase the risk of death among men aged 60 years and older, according to study. Among younger men, it may increase the likelihood of developing coronary heart disease later in life.
In an update to its 2004 guidance on screening for bladder cancer, the United States Preventive Services Task Force (USPSTF) has changed its recommendation from a D (lack of evidence) to an I (insufficient evidence) statement, finding inadequate data to support disease screening for asymptomatic adults or for adults with mild lower urinary tract symptoms such as urinary frequency, hesitancy, urgency, dysuria, or nocturia.
GLASGOW—Bedwetting in childhood is a strong indicator of persisting enuresis in adulthood, researchers concluded in a report presented here at the International Continence Society annual meeting.
WASHINGTON, D.C.—Nocturia is the most common overactive bladder (OAB) symptom affecting health-related quality of life (HRQL) in patients with postural tachycardia syndrome (POTS), investigators reported at the American Urological Association 2011 annual meeting.
SAN FRANCISCO—Nocturia, defined as two or more urinations per night, is associated with an increased risk of death, even after adjusting for comorbidities known to increase mortality, according to two new studies presented at the American Urological Association annual meeting.
Vantia Therapeutics, a British pharmaceutical company, has begun a Phase 2b trial of its lead development compound VA106483 for nocturia, according to a company statement.
Researchers have identified four new independent risk factors for the development of end-stage renal disease (ESRD). These are higher serum uric acid levels, lower hemoglobin levels, family history of kidney disease, and self-reported history of nocturia.
Celecoxib is effective for treating BPH patients with refractory nocturia, researchers in Iran reported in Urology (2008; online ahead of print).
Irritative lower urinary tract symptoms (LUTS) and nocturia are positively associated with diabetes, a study found. The relationship is greater in black than white men.
