Disability in women suffering from interstitial cystitis/bladder pain syndrome
BJU International, 05/18/2012
Katz L et al. – Disability in patients suffering from Interstitial cystitis/bladder pain syndrome (IC/BPS) is partially explained by the impact of negative affect and catastrophizing. As a result of the refractory nature of IC/BPS, patient management within a biopsychosocial framework represents an essential area of investigation. Decreases in negative affect and catastrophizing will probably lead to improvements in pain–related disability.
