Özet

To investigate the involvement of the visceral afferent nerves in diabetes mellitus, we enrolled 46 male patients in a study, examining the cerebral potentials evoked by stimulation of the vesico-urethral junction (VUJ CEP) and the pudendal (penile CEP) and posterior tibial nerves (tibial CEP). The age range was 23-67 (mean 45.8) years. The epithelial surface of the vesico-urethral junction was stimulated bipolarly with an electrode attached to a specially produced Foley catheter. Cerebral responses were recorded bipolarly at vertex.
