Brief Summary:
The subjects who have symptoms of overactive bladder (many trips to the bathroom, and urgency with or without the inability to hold your urine until you get to the toilet) are invited to participate in this research study.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Bladder Outlet Obstruction Drug: Toviaz (Fesoterodine) Phase 4

Detailed Description:

Overactive bladder is a common sequelae of long-term bladder outlet obstruction in men. Unfortunately, it does not often resolve after treatment of the obstruction (transurethral resection of the prostate). These patients are usually started empirically on alpha-blockers or occasionally anticholinergic agents, former used to treat enlarged prostate medically, and latter, to treat overactive bladder. We hypothesize that these patients would be significantly improved with a long-acting anticholinergic agent such as long acting Fesoterodine or Toviaz.

Earlier studies have shown that anticholinergic drugs seem to have a beneficial effect on symptoms of patients with bladder outlet obstruction and overactive bladder. In addition, anticholinergic drug Toviaz is not associated with increased incidence of complication like acute urinary retention, a state where patient is unable to empty the bladder as an adverse effect of the drug.

A large proportion of our patients that are undergoing treatment for bladder outlet obstruction also have overactive bladder. We propose an open label trial to evaluate the efficacy of Toviaz (fesoterodine) 4mg to 8 mg in patients that have continued symptoms of overactive bladder one month following transurethral resection of the prostate. Toviaz is an antimuscarinic and anticholinergic agent, and is a newer formulation of Detrol. Patients with overactive bladder on urodynamic test preoperatively will be considered. If these patients continue to have symptoms at the one-month post-operative visit, they will be enrolled into the study. We expect a total of 25 patients to be enrolled within 4 months. All patients will receive Toviaz 4mg to 8 mg. The patients will be followed at 3 months post-op, 4 months post-op, and 7 months post-op. At each post-op visit, the patients will fill out an AUA symptom score questionnaire, have noninvasive uroflowmetry performed, and have a post-void residual measured by bladder scan. Using standard statistical analysis, we will see if there is a difference in symptoms, post-void residual, or maximum flow rate between baseline and 7 months post-op. We will continue the study to evaluate long-term efficacy, dropout rate, and complications. An FDA approved flexible dosing regimen will be allowed for the duration of the study.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. IPSS Obstructive [ Time Frame: screening (Month 0), 2-months, 3-months, 7-months ]
    International Prostate Symptom Score (IPSS) -is a 7 point scale used to screen, track and manage symptoms associated with BPH for obstructive, irritative, nocturia. The symptoms questions include feeling of incomplete bladder emptying, frequency, intermittency, urgency, weak stream, straining and nocturia. Scores range from 1 to 5 for a total of maximum 35 points (0-7 Mildly symptomatic, 8-19 Moderately symptomatic, 20-35 Severely symptomatic). This measure was taken for patients with obstructive symptoms which includes hesitancy or difficulty initiating the stream, straining to void, a reduced flow, an intermittent stream or a sensation of incomplete emptying.

  2. IPSS Irritative [ Time Frame: screening (Month 0), 2-months, 3-months, 7-months ]
    International Prostate Symptom Score (IPSS) -is a 7 point scale used to screen, track and manage symptoms associated with BPH for obstructive, irritative, nocturia. The symptoms questions include feeling of incomplete bladder emptying, frequency, intermittency, urgency, weak stream, straining and nocturia. Scores range from 1 to 5 for a total of maximum 35 points (0-7 Mildly symptomatic, 8-19 Moderately symptomatic, 20-35 Severely symptomatic). This measure was taken for patients with irritative symptoms which includes frequency, urgency, nocturia and urge incontinence

  3. IPSS Nocturia [ Time Frame: screening (Month 0), 2-months, 3-months, 7-months ]
    International Prostate Symptom Score (IPSS) -is a 7 point scale used to screen, track and manage symptoms associated with BPH for obstructive, irritative, nocturia. The symptoms questions include feeling of incomplete bladder emptying, frequency, intermittency, urgency, weak stream, straining and nocturia. Scores range from 1 to 5 for a total of maximum 35 points (0-7 Mildly symptomatic, 8-19 Moderately symptomatic, 20-35 Severely symptomatic). This measure was taken for patients with nocturia meaning individuals who wake up during sleeping hours to urinate.

  4. International Prostate Symptom Score (IPSS) Quality of Life (QoL) [ Time Frame: screening (Month 0), 2-months, 3-months, 7-months ]
    IPSS Quality of Life (QoL) is one question used to assess how the patient's symptoms affect their quality of life. A score ranges from 1 to 6, with 6 being the worse outcome.

  5. Maximum Flow Rate (Qmax) [ Time Frame: screening (Month 0), 2-months, 3-months, 7-months ]
    Urodynamics was used to meause maximum flow rate (Qmax) which is the maximum recorded flow rate of urinary

  6. Average Flow Rate (Qavg) [ Time Frame: screening (Month 0), 2-months, 3-months, 7-months ]
    Average (mean) flow rate (Qavg) is the the volume of urine voided divided by the continuous flow time

  7. Postvoid Residual Volume (PVR) [ Time Frame: screening (Month 0), 2-months, 3-months, 7-months ]
    Postvoid residual volume (PVR) is the volume of fluid remaining in the bladder immediately after the completion of micturition.
