Electrical stimulation for control of bladder function.
Electrical stimulation of sensory fibers in the pudendal nerve can generate either inhibition or activation of the bladder, and this is a promising approach to restoration of continence and micturition in neurological disease or injury. We review studies of pudendal afferent stimulation to excite the bladder and enhance bladder emptying in urinary retention or restore bladder emptying following spinal cord injury.
