The Urology Care Foundation estimates that only in US, 40% of women and 30% of men are going through an overactive bladder. The symptoms for an overactive bladder are disturbing physically and mentally, both.
David Greuner is a cardiovascular/ thoracic surgeon with years-long experience and he is also the Co-Founder/M.D of NYC Surgical Associates. On this new treatment approach, he shares that the medical experts at NYC Surgical Associates are focused to use fundamental techniques of sclerotherapy for treating varicose veins. These are the veins that girdle the bladder and any tensile stress in these veins causes distress to the bladder.
The ideal scheme should be something that relieved this pressure and stop pushing the bladder to stress and react overly. This way, the frequency of urination could be controlled. The new approach for treating overactive bladder patients involves confirming the dilated veins that are adding weight to the bladder. This process is completed through a basic ultrasound.
The scan results clearly show the distribution of veins and using this, the medical expert can block them by using a catheter into the specific area. This procedure would create a controlled clot made of a gel-foam body. This is a minor surgical procedure without any downtime and the patient can feel a difference within a few days.
This procedure sounds simple but in the real world, this is going to be a life-changing scheme for patients of an overactive bladder. It is simple, easier and much better than using medicines that have unpredictable side effects. Not only it relieves the symptoms of an overactive bladder but it also improves the quality of life for a person who is suffering from it.
People suffering from the hyperactive bladder may sometimes experience “leak urine” or “urge incontinence.” Itis a sudden urge to urinate which is different from stress urinary incontinence (SUI). People suffering from SUI may also leak urine while a moderate physical activity like sneezing, laughing, running, etc. They go to the bathroom more than normal people and this condition varies in every person. Medical experts believe that urinating more than 8 times in 24 hours could be considered as “frequent urination.” If left untreated, it may lead to other health problems as well. That is why new approaches like these should be encouraged and supported.
