The goal of this program is to improve the diagnosis of overactive bladder (OAB) and the treatment of refractory OAB. After hearing and assimilating this program, the clinician will be better able to:

1: Identify the clinical and urodynamic findings characteristic of OAB.

2: Distinguish among neurogenic, non-neurogenic, and idiopathic causes of OAB.

3: Identify the risk factors that predispose to detrusor overactivity.

4: List and describe the treatments (beyond medication and behavioral therapy) available for refractory detrusor overactivity.

5: Describe the mechanism of action of botulinum toxin.
