We wished to establish anorectal functions in patients with spinal cord lesions, related to the level of lesion and its completeness. We also wished to determine the value of neurophysiological tests for completeness of transsections in comparison with manometry and visceral sensory testing. In 32 patients (31.5 +/- 14.1 years, 25 males) with spinal trauma,(More)
Patients with spinal cord lesion suffer from complex disorders of bladder and anorectal function. We assessed the value of urodynamics and anorectal manometry as prognostic and diagnostic tools in these patients and evaluated the usefulness of these techniques for the differentiation between complete and incomplete spinal cord lesions. Thirty patients with(More)
Spinal cord injuries in children are relatively uncommon. However, infants with cervical spine injury have an especially high risk of renal damage. Six patients, 4 of them tetraplegic, aged 15 months to 8 years, were primarily treated by oral anticholinergic medication and intermittent catheterization. With this concept, satisfactory results were achieved(More)
