Hypothesis / aims of study Electrical stimulation of pudendal nerve afferents has shown to be an effective method to suppress the involuntary detrusor contractions in patients with NDO 1 . The goal of this study was to investigate whether patients with neurogenic detrusor overactivity can sense the onset of bladder contraction and in turn can suppress the contraction by electrical stimulation of the dorsal penile/clitoral nerve.
