High bladder pressure is a potential side effect of poststimulus voiding, used to date for stimulation-induced bladder emptying in spinal cord injured patients. To prevent this side effect, selective activation of the bladder without activation of the urethral sphincter by selective stimulation of sacral roots was studied in a canine animal model. On-line registration of bladder, urethral and rectal pressure was performed, and EMG of tail muscles and urethral sphincter was recorded. After… CONTINUE READING
