Women experiencing overactive bladder symptoms who have not been helped by behavioral therapy and medical therapy or have not tolerated medical therapy and desire further evaluation may be eligible for a new study. HydrA is a UAB Division of Urogynecology and Pelvic Reconstructive Surgery study that compares Botox® bladder injections to Botox® bladder injections with hydrodistention (filling of the bladder with sterile water for 5 minutes prior to the botox injection) to help reduce overactive bladder symptoms. For more information, call 934-2569. Compensation is provided.

This 12 week study involves 4 visits to The UAB Continence Clinic and two telephone consolations. There is no cost, and participants will be compensated. Interested? Please call 975-3503 and mention the Vitamin D study.
