The aim of transurethral electrical bladder stimulation (TEBS) treatment in patients with diminished detrusor contractility is to attain complete voiding, i.e., micturition without residual urine, which is under volitional control. In contrast to other types of electrical bladder stimulation, the physiological basis for this kind of treatment is sensitizing(More)
OBJECTIVES We assessed the incidence of morbidity and bother on quality-of-life (QL) after radical retropubic prostatectomy for prostate cancer. METHODS At least 12 months after surgery, self-reporting questionnaires were completed and returned by 368 (77.8%) of 473 eligible patients.
