Abstract

Synchronous cystosphincterometry with a membrane catheter was done on spinal cord injury patients. Bladder and urethral pressures were monitored quantitatively during vesical filling and emptying. Phentolamine, propantheline and bethanechol chloride were administered to selected patients with bladder and urethral dysfunction. The membrane catheter technique was an excellent method to evaluate the pharmacology of detrusor and urethral function.
