The overactive bladder is defined as a bladder storage / filling disorder, where involuntary bladder contractions occur, causing patient’s symptoms. It is most commonly due to idiopathic detrusor overactivity; but in the presence of neurological diseases, it is known as neurogenic detrusor overactivity.
The overall prevalence in the general population is 10%. It increases with age; especially after the age of 30 years. It is much higher in menopausal, elderly, hospitalized or nursing home patients.
