Excessive bladder activity causes and treatment

The activity of the bladder or a condition called overactive bladder, patients may suffer from some or all of the following symptoms, such as urinating more frequently than usual, or feeling a strong urge to urinate that cannot be postponed, shopping polycarbonate when no one can reach the toilet fast enough, and waking up to urinate more than once during the night.

Common nervous system abnormalities that cause bladder overactivity include Parkinson's disease, multiple sclerosis, stroke, dementia, diabetes, spinal cord abnormalities, pelvic trauma, and low estrogen levels in women due to menopause.

Treatment of excessive overactive bladder:

If other forms of treatment, such as bladder retraining and diet, do not succeed in treating the bladder problem, Botox treatment may be offered to the patient after a thorough examination of the shape and movement of the bladder muscles.

Botox injections paralyze part of the bladder muscle, meaning the bladder becomes more relaxed and elastic so the patient can last longer before feeling the need to empty the bladder. This would help reduce urge-to-urinate episodes and their frequency.

There is no need to be a follower of cosmetic treatments news to be familiar with the treatment called Botox (botulinum toxin) and its trade name BOTOX. Since it is often used as a treatment cosmetic rid of wrinkles, but it can be used medically to treat muscle disorders.

Injecting this drug into the bladder wall has been successful in treating patients with overactive bladder and 80% of patients have been shown to see improvement in bladder symptoms after this treatment.

Opinion of Medicine:

“Botox is very effective in alleviating symptoms caused by overactive bladder, " says Dr. Enrico Dassen, consultant urologist at Medior 24x7 International Hospital, Al Ain.

In most cases, this treatment is prescribed if patients do not benefit from any type of medication prescribed in this case, but they directly benefit from Botox treatment, which is often much stronger.

In addition, one of the benefits of this treatment is that it does not expose patients to any of the side effects caused by the usual medications such as dry mouth, pressure drop, dry eyes, or constipation, and almost no complaints for a longer period of time.

 He adds: "a thin tube called a cystoscope is inserted and a small camera is attached to the Tube so the surgeon can look inside the bladder.

Through the tube, several injections of Botox are injected into the specific sites of the bladder wall and the Botox effect appears immediately because the injection is given inside the bladder in the muscles. The surgery is usually performed under general anesthesia.”

After surgery, the patient is able to urinate without any problems, and remains in the day care surgery unit for a few hours until he is in a condition that allows him to return home.

The effects of Botox usually begin 1-7 days after the injection, and the effect can last from 6 to 12 months, which is a quick procedure with minimal discomfort.

However, as with any procedure involving the introduction of equipment into the sterile area (bladder) there are small potential risks, such as cystitis, for which the patient can consult a urologist for treatment.

One can return to work the day after the Botox injection and request a follow-up appointment one week later.

Dr. Arun Menon, director of operations at Medor 24 × 7 International Hospital, Al Ain, said: "Medor 24 × 7 International Hospital is dedicated to providing specialized healthcare to the residents of the UAE and the community of Al Ain city, by providing state-of-the-art technology and specialized medical care in the treatment of various medical and medical conditions.”
