AUA 2019: Preventing Falls in Older Women with Overactive Bladder: The Impact of Fesoterodine on Falls Risk, Physical Functioning, and Balance

Interestingly, there was no increase in physical activity along with the improvement in urinary symptoms. Overall, the study lacks a control group and the follow-up time is short. In order to adequately assess the risk of cognitive decline and with fesoterodine the follow-up period would need to be lengthened to at least one year and beyond. Nonetheless, given the significant impact that OAB has on quality of life in older women, the risks of treatment with anticholinergic medications are often outweighed by the benefits received by them, and this study provides valuable preliminary data regarding the effects of fesoterodine in this elderly female population. In patients who are not candidates for anticholinergic medications due to fall risk or cognition, clinicians can consider
