We are looking forward to having you for this round table. Along with an international panel of experts including Dr Adrian Wagg (geriatrician, Edmonton, Canada), Dr Stuart Reynolds (urologist, Nashville, USA), Dr Claire Hentzen (Physical medicine and rehabilitation, Paris, France) and Dr Benjamin Brucker (urologist, New York, USA) we will delve into the pathophysiology of overactive bladder, to demonstrate how deciphering the symptoms and urodynamics’ profile may help to identify several subtypes of OAB. We will also discuss the existing evidence showing that these various OAB phenotypes respond differently to the current OAB treatments. The whole session will then be a very pragmatical plea to the audience to individualize OAB treatments to individual patients’ characteristics from now on but also how this concept of OAB phenotypes may shape the future of this syndrome in terms of management and research.
