ABSTRACTIntroduction: Overactive bladder is a syndrome characterized by increased urinary frequency, urinary urgency accompanied with or without incontinence. The recommendation as first-line treatment is the use of antimuscarinic agents; however, the number of side effects is poorly tolerated. Material and methods: We applied the quality of life questionnaire, visual analogue scale, voiding diary and urodynamic study was performed. By sealed envelope was randomly selected treatment: group A: Tolterodine and group B: Magnetic stimulation. At the end of treatment, were retested with urodynamic study. Results: We recruited 29 patients, eliminated during the mapping and monitoring 14 patients by default, allergic reactions to medications and pregnancy, leaving 15 patients for analysis. Significant differences were found in the quality of live questionnaire items of role limitation, physical limitation, social limitation and personal relationships. There were significant differences in reducing emergency periods in favor of group B. Conclusion: Magnetic stimulation is a treatment option for patients with overactive bladder due to good performance, comfort, absence of side effects and good choice for patients taking multiple drugs.
