Sacral anterior root stimulation and cryotechnique: A new option for selective urethral sphincter block and reversible deafferentation in the future?

A possible application of cryotechnique might be a selective block of nerve fiber activity during sacral anterior root stimulation to achieve selective block of urethral sphincter and reversible deafferentation. In 13 foxhounds, electrical stimulation of sacral anterior roots S2 was performed while the accompanying spinal nerves were simultaneously cooled… CONTINUE READING
