Stimulated smooth muscle neosphincter in male intrinsic sphincter deficiency: Proof of principle studies in a rabbit model
Aims Intrinsic sphincter deficiency (ISD) causes significant disability and impairment of quality of life despite a range of treatment options. We investigated a novel method to improve sphincter function that does not appear to have been previously attempted, that is, transplantation to create a smooth muscle cuff, that subsequently becomes innervated, around the urethra. Methods Bladder pressure and passage of urine were measured in conscious, sedated rabbits of three groups: 6 control...[Show more]
