Would it be possible for you to send your motion picture to me for a short review before our meeting in Williamsburg? Several
paraplegic physicians will be in Richmond in about three weeks from now and I would also like to show them your movie. I have
a copy of the movie prepared by Dr. Bradley which I will show them also.
We have not been too successful in our three implantation of the electrodes. Although one patient is receiving definite stimulation
to the bladder, it does not seem to be enough to initiate a complete voiding contraction. In another we must have placed the
electrodes too close to the bladder neck as on sphinctometric examinations and direct observation of the bladder neck and
external sphincter we noted marked contraction upon stimulation. About five days ago, we removed the electrodes from this
area and placed them higher and laterally on the bladder. We have not restimulated him since the operative procedure. In our
third patient we note only a very slight elevation of the curve on stimulation. We are still working with these patients and
with bladder training, etc., and will keep you informed.
I have your letter regarding Charles G. Brooks whom we will be glad to correspond with upon receipt of a letter from him.
I hope that you received a brochure regarding our meeting from our secretary of the Mid-Atlantic Section. If you have not
as yet received it, I am sure you will receive it in a few days as I informed him the latter part of last week to send it
I am looking forward to receiving your motion picture.
