To classify complete spinal cord injury (SCI) patients based on the preservation of desire to void and to make clear the difference between each group
This study was performed retrospectively on 117 complete SCI patients with lesions above T11 who were referred to the urodynamic laboratory. Patients were classified according to the preservation of desire to void during conventional urodynamic study. The clinical and urodynamic characteristics of each group were analyzed.
There were 37 patients (31.6%) with the preserva-tion of desire to void. There were significantly lower compliance of bladder and longer duration from onset to examination in the sensory preservation group than the nonpreservation group (p<0.05). There were no significant difference in clinical features such as voiding method, the presence of autonomic dysreflexia between each group.
The presence of desire to void was noted in 31.6% of complete SCI patients observed. (J Korean Acad Rehab Med 2006; 30: 340-345)
