Does the treatment of NNBSD in girls leads to definite cure or do we learn them to live with their dysfunction. In order to answer this [Background] Stoller afferent nerve stimulation (SANS) has been question we re-evaluated bladder function in girls treated between proved to be effective in adults to treat bladder dysfunction (BD), while in pediatric age experience is still preliminary.

[Conclusion] The side-effect-ratio between Tolterodine and Central nervous system disorders (81%) were the most common oxybutynin is definitely in favour of Tolterodine in children with adverse events, 26.2% showed flushing, 12.2% had abnormal visual accomodation and 25.2 %had gastrointestinal complaints (constipation, diarrhoea, abdominal pain). Withdrawal of the non-selective antimuscarinic drug resulted in total recovery from adverse events. The remaining 39.6% of group 1 switched to tolterodine due to lack improvement in micturition variables. Introduction of tolterodine in group I and II caused no serious adverse D. BATINIC , G.

Faculty of Health Sciences Linköping, Sweden THE BLADDER COOLING TEST IN CHILDREN WITH NON-NEUROGENIC BLADDER PROBLEMS [Background] The bladder cooling test, BCT, activates a primitive neonatal reflex that becomes suppressed by descending signals in older children. The aim of this study was to evaluate the BCT in children with non-neurogenic bladder problems.
[Methods] The BCT was evaluated in a consecutive series of 265 children (169 girls and 96 boys, 1 month - 18 years) with non-neurogenic bladder problems. The test was performed at the end of an ordinary cystometry by a rapid infusion of body-warm saline (about a third of the cystometric capacity) followed by the same volume of cold saline (4-8°C). The test was considered positive if a detrusor contraction above 30 cm/H O was evoked by the cold fluid but not by the warm.
[Results] Most children <4 years (24/30) had VUR (IV-V), the rest a history of UTIs. The BCT was positive in 14/15 below 1 year and in 9/12 below 2 years. All but one test (1/12) was negative between 2-4 years. Seven of these negative tests were repeats in children with positive BCT before 2 years. Most older children (>4 years) had urge incontinence and/or dysfunctional voiding. The frequency of positive BCT was highest (57%) in the interval 4-6 years with a gradual decline to 12 years. Only 1/35 older than 12 years had a positive test. [Conclusion] The conversion of positive to negative BCTs at 2-4 years presumably represents normal maturation. Positive tests in older children with urge incontinence suggest delayed maturation of the central control of the bladder.
