This talk will discuss the incidence and etiology, evaluation (signs or symptoms to look out for which may indicate a concerning etiology of symptoms), and step-wise management of OAB. Behavioral, medical, and procedural management options will be presented, including botulinum toxin injection, sacral neuromodulation, and percutaneous nerve stimulation.

Failure to prescribe anticoagulation to prevent stroke in high-risk atrial fibrillation (AF) patients is a persistent and pervasive problem. Despite a multitude of evidence-based clinical practice guidelines, and five effective oral anticoagulants for stroke prevention, at least 30% of these patients remain unprotected. This talk will focus on understanding the root causes of the failure to prevent stroke crisis. The role of antithrombotic therapy, in particular direct oral anticoagulants, will be reviewed. Strategies for implementation of best practices for stoke prevention in AF will be highlighted.

Vaginitis is one of the most common gynecologic problems seen in ambulatory practice. Join us in discussing the differential diagnosis, which includes not only a vaginal infection, but also cervicitis, a physiologic discharge, atrophic vaginitis, and iatrogenic vaginitis. A precise diagnosis can be achieved with a careful history, focused examination, and skilled use of the office laboratory. This talk will pave the way to an accurate diagnosis, after which, effective therapy can be prescribed.

Faculty will discuss the latest date on the epidemiology and pathogenesis of UTI with a focus on the non-catheterized woman. UTIS are very common and a considerable amount of antimicrobial use is aimed at treatment of this infection. Thus, it is very important that we try to be good stewards for our antimicrobial armamentarium as we decide who warrants treatment and whether treatment can be safely delayed or avoided. Likewise, there are several prevention modalities available that should be considered before turning to antimicrobials in the woman with recurrent UTI. Lastly, there are some very exciting prevention approaches under development that may provide us with safe and effective antimicrobial-sparing strategies in the future.
