Acute effect of electrical stimulation of the dorsal genital nerve on rectal capacity in patients with spinal cord injury

Publikation: Bidrag til tidsskrift/Konferencebidrag i tidsskrift /Bidrag til avisTidsskriftartikelForskningpeer review

Constipation and fecal incontinence are considerable problems for most individuals with spinal cord injury (SCI). Neurogenic bowel symptoms are caused by several factors including abnormal rectal wall properties. Stimulation of the dorsal genital nerve (DGN) can inhibit bladder contractions and because of common innervation inhibitory effects are anticipated in the rectum too. Therefore, DNG could have a future role in the treatment of neurogenic fecal incontinence.
