Although primarily used for treatment of stress incontinence, pelvic floor rehabilitation has been reported to have some value in the treatment of detrusor instability and urgency. In neurogenic bladder dysfunction due to Multiple Sclerosis, many authors have suggested the possible use of pelvic floor rehabilitation as a treatment modality. Therefore, we(More)
BACKGROUND The radiolanthanide (161)Tb has, in recent years, attracted increasing interest due to its favorable characteristics for medical application. (161)Tb exhibits similar properties to the widely-used therapeutic radionuclide (177)Lu. In contrast to (177)Lu, (161)Tb yields a significant number of short-ranging Auger/conversion electrons (≤50 keV)(More)
BACKGROUND Terbium has attracted the attention of researchers and physicians due to the existence of four medically interesting radionuclides, potentially useful for SPECT and PET imaging, as well as for α- and β(-)-radionuclide therapy. The aim of this study was to produce (152)Tb (T 1/2 = 17.5 h, Eβ+av = 1140 keV) and evaluate it in a preclinical setting(More)
We present a study on the clinical assessment of pelvic floor dysfunction in 30 female patients with proven multiple sclerosis (MS). A scoring system for pelvic floor muscle testing by digital vaginal palpation is proposed. The concept of pelvic floor spasticity in MS is introduced. The relationship of our findings with the neurological findings and(More)
