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.

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 contractions.
