Abstract

Twenty years after placement of a Mentor bladder pacemaker, a 38-year-old woman with spina bifida cystica still has controlled detrusor contraction and complete bladder emptying. The varied treatment modalities for this difficult group of patients has included electronic bladder stimulation. Although no longer commonly used, electronic bladder stimulation has shown long-term efficiency in this patient.
