Vesitirim™ in Men Postmarketing Observational Study (VIM)
This is an observational study which will look at the improvement in Lower Urinary Tract Symptoms (LUTS) in Irish men being treated with Vesitirim™ (solifenacin).
Vesitirim™ is a competitive specific muscarinic receptor antagonist and has been used extensively for the treatment of OAB (Over Active Bladder) in women and has shown significant impact on urgency, frequency and incontinence in females. It is also indicated for the symptomatic treatment of urgency incontinence and/or increased urinary frequency and urgency in men. The purpose of this study is to evaluate LUTS storage symptom improvement in men with non neurogenic LUTS who have been prescribed Vesitirim™.
The effect of Vesitirim (solifenacin) treatment on bothersome symptoms improvement will be measured using Over Active Bladder-q Short Form (OAB-qSF) and the Perception of Treatment Satisfaction (TS-VAS). The study will also help define some of the characteristics of the male population in Ireland who are treated with Vesitirim™ (solifenacin) as well as evaluating the effect of Vesitirim™ monotherapy or combination therapy on storage symptoms improvement (urgency, frequency and urge incontinence) using a bladder diary and IPSS (International Prostate Symptom Score). The study will also evaluate the effect of Vesitirim™ monotherapy or combination therapy on nocturia using IPSS. The impact of LUTS on quality of life will also be assessed. Data will also be collected regarding adverse drug reactions.

Male patients with non-neurogenic LUTS taking VESITRIM
Male patients diagnosed with non-neurogenic Lower Urinary Tract Symptoms (LUTS) with bothersome storage disorder defined as urgency, and/or frequency and/or Urgency Urinary Incontinence (UUI)
Drug: Vesitirim™ (Solifenacin)
Other Name: Solifenacin
This is a post marketing, non-interventional study (NIS) of patients who are to be treated with Vesitirim™. The decision whether or not to treat with Vesitirim™ will be made by the treating physician prior to the entry of the patient into the study. The patient will be informed of the study and written consent will be obtained prior to screening and determination of eligibility.
No study drug will be supplied as part of this study.
