Pudendal nerve-stimulated MUP in chronic ISD. Data are MUP values in cm H2O. The time points are pre-ISD procedure (baseline), post-ISD (immediately before treatment - 6 months post ISD procedure) and 6 months posttreatments in the local vehicle injection (CLV), local skeletal muscle precursor cell (CLM) and systemic muscle cell injection (CSM) groups. Values are mean ± standard error of the mean (SEM). ANOVA p = 0.03. * = p < 0.05 resting vs. pudendal nerve-stimulated MUP values. Results indicate that the ISD procedure reduced the MUP response to pudendal nerve stimulation and that local skeletal muscle precursor cell injections increased MUP values, but only to the p = 0.06 confidence level. ISD intrinsic urinary sphincter deficiency, MUP maximal urethral pressure
