Fifty-six patients with the 'urge syndrome' were reviewed between 1 and 5 years after in-patients treatment by bladder training. There was an overall initial cure/improvement rate of 85%. The best long-term results were obtained in those with objectively stable bladders before treatment. Forty-three per cent of patients with reduced detrusor compliance and idiopathic instability relapsed after initial improvement. Those with primary instability or with associated degenerative disease responded poorly to treatment.
