What is intravesical electrical stimulation?

Intravesical electrical stimulation refers to a treatment method of transurethral direct electrical stimulation in the bladder cavity. Katona and berenji first introduced intravesical stimulation technology in Hungary in 1956. Madesbacher et al confirmed their experience in 1982. This is the first attempt to promote bladder rehabilitation through intravesical pathway. The initial purpose of intravesical stimulation therapy is to establish effective detrusor contraction, hoping to achieve urinary control through biofeedback technology. In a certain number of patients, we observed that the sensory function of bladder was improved and the feeling of urgency was improved.

The role of intravesical electrical stimulation therapy: through the current stimulation, stimulate the bladder sensory function and promote the recovery of bladder urinary consciousness and urethral sensory function; Stimulate the recovery of bladder detrusor contraction function and effectively improve bladder volume and compliance.

Specific methods of intravesical electrical stimulation: insert a slender stimulation electrode into the bladder cavity through the urethra, take sterile normal saline as the conductor, and directly stimulate the bladder with a certain frequency, pulse width and amplitude current. This technology is safe, effective and easy to operate.

Indications of intravesical electrical stimulation: dysuria, weakness, prolonged micturition time, hypoesthesia or disappearance of urine storage and micturition caused by spinal cord injury, spinal cord dysplasia, disc herniation, trauma and other reasons.
