We hypothesize fecal retention is the primary source of bladder dysfunction in some children with Urge Syndrome. Our specific aims are:
- To test this hypothesis through a prospective, randomized, double-blinded and placebo-controlled trial of laxatives for children diagnosed with US.
- To determine if a validated questionnaire of bowel activity administered to the family, and when appropriate, the patient, will identify those likely to benefit from laxative therapy for bladder dysfunction.
- To determine if the abdominal X-Ray of the kidneys, ureters and bladder (KUB) assessment of fecal loading corresponds to answers on the questionnaire regarding incidence of constipation, and/or response to laxative therapy for US.
