The mechanism by which TENS (Transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation) treats urinary incontinence and overactive bladder (OAB) in neurologically normal children does not appear to be the level of the bladder, as there is no change in maximum bladder capacity during TENS treatment.1 I have presumed that the effect is at the brain level, by increasing the ability of the interoceptive centers to sense when the bladder is full. Unfortunately, the data on resting state functional connectivity from adult women with OAB are conflicting.

CONCLUSION: TENS had a remarkable effect on the improvement of urodynamic indexes and objective OAB symptoms without a significant increase in VAS scores for children with OAB. PMID: 32252190 [PubMed]

The objective this study is to publish the study protocol that aims to investigate whether urgency decreases after treatment with both of the techniques.MethodsThis randomized controlled clinical trial will include 99 women, aged more than 18  years old, with urgency (score ≥ 8 in the Overactive Bladder-Validated 8-Question Awareness Tool [OAB-V8]). Women will be randomly allocated into three groups: TTNS, PTES, and placebo. The following questionnaires will be applied: the Anamnesis Record, the Incontinence Questionnaire Overact ive Bladder, the King’s Health Questionnaire, the 24-Hour Voidin...

CONCLUSION: There is actually an insufficient concern about urinary symptoms in normal pressure hydrocephalus. This article highlights the importance of a harmonization of neuro-urological practices in the pre-therapeutic evaluation of patients suffering from normal pressure hydrocephalus.

Posterior tibial nerve stimulation (PTNS) is a minimally invasive treatment option for refractory overactive bladder (OAB). But frequent hospital visits and its treatment cost may be prohibitive for patients. As a convenient method, we focused on transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS). Although TENS of somatic afferents in foot has reportedly inhibited reflex micturition and increased bladder capacity in anesthetized cats as well as healthy humans, its effect in OAB patients is still unknown.

The objective of this study was to compare the effects of two frequencies of transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS) on urinary incontinence caused by stroke. Methods: Eighty-one patients with poststroke urinary incontinence were recruited and randomized into the following three groups with a 1:1 ratio: a 20-Hz TENS group, a 75-Hz TENS group, and a no-treatment control group (n = 27 per group). TENS currents were biphasic square waves with pulse durations of 150 μsecs and pulse frequencies of 20 Hz or 75 Hz and were applied for 30 mins once per day for 90 days. The positive electrodes were placed in the regi...
