A group of 21 complete spinal cord injury patients, beyond the phase of spinal shock, were given a treatment of cisapride at random, 10 mg four times a day for 4 weeks. Cystometry was performed first before the start and during the following 4 weeks. No statistically significant difference could be found in the urodynamic parameters between the two groups at the first cystometry. No statistically significant change of the urodynamic parameters could be demonstrated with the treatment, although a non-statistically significant bladder stimulating effect was present in a majority of the patients in the cisapride group.
