The second part of this webinar on overactive bladder discusses the evaluation and management of this condition. Presented by Alan Wein from the University of Pennsylvania, the webinar introduces the current guidelines for diagnosis and conservative and pharmacologic therapy. Management strategies and treatment goals, as well as behavioural therapy approaches, are examined. In addition, recommendations and outcomes for the use of antimuscarinics and beta-3 agonists are discussed in detail, alongside aetiologies of treatment failure. This webinar is an invaluable resource for specialists in the field treating patients with overactive bladder.
