OBJECTIVE To determine the effect of intravesical capsaicin on the suburothelial innervation in patients with detrusor hyper-reflexia, in whom a single dose of intravesical capsaicin (1-2 mmol/L) increases the bladder capacity for 3-6 months. PATIENTS AND METHODS Thirteen patients with detrusor hyper-reflexia underwent cystometry and had flexible cystoscopic biopsies taken before and 6 weeks after receiving instillations of intravesical capsaicin (1 mmol/L). Similar biopsies were also… CONTINUE READING
