OBJECTIVE To assess the effect of magnetic stimulation of the S3 nerve root on unstable contractions in patients with idiopathic detrusor instability. PATIENTS AND METHODS Twelve patients with idiopathic instability were studied. The S3 nerve root was localized by mapping the response of the toe flexor muscles and anal sphincter to magnetic stimulation at different sites. Unstable contractions were provoked by rapidly infusing saline into the bladder and the effect of magnetic stimulation of… CONTINUE READING
