Objective: To assess the effectiveness of the Memokath (Engineers & Doctors A/S, Denmark) thermosensitive stent as a ‘nondestructive’ means of reducingbladder outlet resistance by treating detrusor sphincter dyssynergia (DSD) of neurogenic bladder dysfunction associated with spinal cord injury. Setting: Spinal Injuries Unit, Sheffield, England. Methods: A medical records review was performed to examine our experience of Memokaths over the last 10 years. Duringthis time, 29 patients with spinal cord injury (17 tetraplegic and 12 paraplegic) underwent stenting of the external urethral sphincter either for prevention of dysreflexic symptoms, high residual urine volumes and subsequent urinary tract infection (UTI) or for protection of the upper tracts. Results: A total of 33 stents were inserted into 29 men (25–77 years) with suprasacral spinal cord injury.
