Abstract

A forty-year-old man with reflex urinary incontinence due to spinal cord injury was treated with electrical stimulation of the pelvic floor musculature. In this case we employed percutaneous implantable electrodes and an external pulse regulator. After 4 weeks of stimulation incontinence was improved and urodynamically maximum cystometric capacity increased from 220 ml to 350 ml. Our method is easy and not invasive. This technique can be an alternative for the electrical stimulation for urinary incontinence.
