Further study details as provided by Cleveland Clinic Florida:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • To assess the efficacy of solifenacin in the prevention of postoperative OAB symptoms (urinary frequency,urgency, urge incontinence, nocturia) in women undergoing sub-urethral sling placement for mixed urinary incontinence with primary stress symptoms. [ Time Frame: 11 weeks ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Assess safety of Solifenacin in women having sub-urethral sling procedures, the perioperative period, on quality of life measures on length of hospitalization on the time to resumption of normal voiding in time to removal of suprapubic catheter. [ Time Frame: 11 weeks ]

Enrollment: 11
Study Start Date: February 2008
Study Completion Date: February 2010
Primary Completion Date: July 2009 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Placebo Comparator: 1
Orally 9 weeks once daily.
Other: Placebo
Take orally once daily for 9 weeks.
Experimental: Solifenacin
Orally 9 weeks once daily.
Drug: Solifenacin
Solifenacin is used to treat overactive bladder. It works by relaxing the bladder muscles to prevent urgent, frequent, or uncontrolled urination. Take orally once daily for 9 weeks.
