TENS applied to the sacral dermatomes of neurological patients with urinary symptoms had a minimal effect on urodynamic data but significantly improved irritative urinary symptoms, 24-h urinary frequency, incontinence and clothes changing. The lack of effect on quality-of-life measures probably reflects the lack of sensitivity in the tools used in this group of patients. We therefore recommend using TENS in this often problematical group of patients.
