Abstract

AIMS: OnabotulinumtoxinA (onaBNTa) for treating neurogenic detrusor overactivity (NDO) is widely used after its regulatory approval in adults. Although the administration of onaBNTa is still considered off-label in children, data have already been reported on its efficacy and safety. Nowadays, there is a lack of standardized protocols for treatment of NDO with onaBNTa in adolescent patients in their transition from the childhood to the adult age. With the aim to address this issue a consensus panel was obtained. METHODS: A panel of leading urologists and urogynaecologists skilled in functional urology, neuro-urology, urogynaecology, and pediatric urology participated in a consensus-forming project using a Delphi method to reach national consensus on NDO-onaBNTa treatment in adolescence transitional care. RESULTS: In total, 11 experts participated. All panelists participated in the four phases of the consensus process. Consensus was reached if ≥70% of the experts agreed on recommendations. To facilitate a common understanding among all experts, a face-to-face consensus meeting was held in Rome in march 2015 and then with a follow-up teleconference in march 2017. By the end of the Delphi process, formal consensus was achieved for 100% of the items and an algorithm was then developed. CONCLUSIONS: This manuscript represents the first report on the onaBNTa in adolescents. Young adults should be treated as a distinct sub-population in policy, planning, programming, and research, as strongly sustained by national public health care. This consensus and the algorithm could support multidisciplinary communication, reduce the extent of variations in clinical practice and optimize clinical decision making.
