The PPBC is a single-item tool to assess perception of bladder condition in patients with OAB.
The validation of the patient perception of bladder condition (PPBC): A single-item global measure for patients with overactive bladder.
During the welding process, a commercial available rod of PPBC as well as the weld area was heated by both convection and conduction as hot air flows at 60 ml/min at three different temperatures (230, 245, and 260[degrees]C).
The plateau values achieved by TN samples were always lower than that reached by neat PPBC. There are two reasons that can explain these results: (i) the level of incomplete fusion that the joints underwent for each welding temperature as shown in Fig.
There were also significant changes to all PROs; scores for the UDI-6, ICIQ, and PPBC
all significantly improved after injections.
Categorical data (PPBC) were evaluated using a Cochran Mantel-Haenszel test stratified by pooled center.
In both symptom duration-based subgroups, approximately half of the patients experienced moderate bladder-related problems at baseline as measured by PPBC, and approximately one-quarter experienced severe problems, with no clinically meaningful differences between groups; other clinical characteristics were also similar between groups.
Subjective improvement was also noticed with mean PPBC scores decreasing from 4.4 (SD ± 0.7) at baseline to 1.8 (SD ± 0.7; p < 0.0001) at the end point (Table 4) (Fig.

In this study, there was no significant difference reported in the primary endpoint of Patient Perception of Bladder Condition (PPBC
