- Use of the MemokathÂ® for detrusor-sphincter dyssynergia after spinal cord injury â€“ a cautionary tale. Low, A I; McRae, P J // Spinal Cord;Jan1998, Vol. 36 Issue 1, p39
We report on the intraurethral insertion of the Memokath in 24 patients (26 stents) to combat detrusor-sphincter dyssynergia developing after spinal cord injury. Most patients have high tetraplegia for whom self-catheterisation is very difficult, if not impossible. Our results have been...
- Effect of 4-aminopyridine and single-dose methylprednisolone on functional recovery after a chronic spinal cord injury. Haghighi, Siavash S; Clapper, Adam; Johnson, Gayle C; Stevens, Amy; Prapaisilp, Arisa // Spinal Cord;Jan1998, Vol. 36 Issue 1, p6
The demyelination process is an important factor contributing to long term sensory and motor impairments after spinal cord injury (SCI). Exposure of axonal K+ channels after demyelination may contribute to blockage of action potentials across the injury site. A K+ channel blocker,...
- Medication usage in a spinal cord injured population. Hope, M E; Kailis, S G // Spinal Cord;Mar1998, Vol. 36 Issue 3, p161
The patterns of medication usage in persons with a spinal cord injury (SCI) in a residential facility have been studied. This population averaged over eight (8) medications per person, took 70% of this medication from five (5) therapeutic categories (MIMS) and thus took multiple medications from...
