No uninhibited bladder
contractions were detected during a Urodynamic study at 12 months postoperatively.
Earlier studies using spinal cord injured rodents and SNM revealed a similar finding - lowered CGRP and elimination of bladder hyper-reflexia.[sup.14] Unfortunately for the authors, abolishment of uninhibited bladder
contractions in their rodent model were not demonstrated.
Ninety percent of girls with UTIs have abnormal voiding habits, including 60% who have uninhibited bladder
and 30% who are infrequent voiders.
The test is used to determine if the patient has uninhibited bladder
contractions or a hypersensitivity to filling and small bladder capacity (see Figure 7).
Measuring voided volume and post-voiding residual helps to differentiate between uninhibited bladder
(urge incontinence) and an underactive bladder.
Association of urinary tract infection and reflux with uninhibited bladder
contractions and voluntary sphincteric obstruction.
Historically, bladder augmentation has been performed as salvage therapy for OAB patients who are refractory to other more conservative measures.[sup.2] The detubularized bowel interposition interrupts detrusor contractions and, therefore, detrusor overactivity.[sup.3] Furthermore, the procedure is believed to provide symptomatic improvement by increasing bladder compliance and dampening increases in intra-vesical pressure resulting from uninhibited bladder
