Six patients showed neurogenic bladder dysfunction of detrusor sphincter dyssynergia. There of them were treated with pharmacological inhibition of the smooth sphincter and one patient was treated with pharmacological inhibition of both sphincters. Mean duration of bladder retraining of the 6 patients was 13.8 days with 100 percent succesful bladder retraining with 150cc of acceptable maximal residual urine volume.
