Overactive Bladder

An Overactive Bladder condition, which is also known as Overactive Bladder Syndrome (OAB) and Detrusor Overactivity (DO), is a urological condition that occurs when involuntary detrusor muscle contractions (bladder contractions) occur during bladder filling. These contractions, which may be spontaneous or provoked, are unable to be suppressed by the patient. In other words, this is a condition in which the bladder gives the sudden sensation of needing to void, and this urge cannot be suppressed. Another way of describing these symptoms can be known as Urge Incontinence. Urinary Urge Incontinence (UUI) or Urge Incontinence (UI) is defined as the observation of involuntary leakage from the urethra synchronous with the sensation of a sudden compelling desire to void that is difficult to defer.
