A Randomized Double-Blind Crossover Trial of Intradetrusor Injection of Botulinum A Toxin for Severe and Refractory Idiopathic Detrusor Overactivity in Women

Paul Duggan

Intradetrusor injection of onabotulinum A toxin (BTX-A) is an effective regimen for the highly prevalent condition in women of overactive bladder. The optimal dose of BTX-A has not been definitively established. Women (n = 13) with overactive bladder including urge incontinence refractory to at least two different oral/transdermal anticholinergic regimens and who had idiopathic detrusor overactivity were randomized to 100-unit and 200-unit doses utilizing a double-blinded crossover design.

Aggressive Angiomyxoid Tumour - A Very Rare Pathologic Finding in the Urinary Bladder Co-existing with Pregnancy

OBI-NJOKU OBINNA, Coscione Alberto and Hiten Patel

The bladder is an uncommon site for an aggressive Angiomyxoid tumour. We present a case of a 23-year-old primigravida who suffered no urinary symptoms and was referred due to an incidental bladder finding on ultrasound scan and went on to have a rigid cystoscopy and resection of lesion which was confirmed by histology to be an aggressive Angiomyxoid tumour.
