Our objective was to describe pelvic floor responses with measurement of reflex latency after suprapubic mechanical stimulation. Twenty-one patients without neurological disease were studied. They were 14 women and seven men. The mean age was 51 (SD = 14.2). Motor responses were recorded with a needle electrode inserted in the left bulbocavernosus muscle. Stimulation was delivered with an electromechanical hammer, tapping directly on the suprapubic area. A polyphasic muscular response was… CONTINUE READING
