Faecal incontinence is frequent in the elderly. Little is currently known about the efficacy of sacral nerve modulation in the elderly. The present study aimed to assess the impact of age on the outcome of sacral nerve modulation and on the surgical revision and explantation rates by comparing the results of a large dataset of patients.

Sphincter preserving surgery for the treatment of rectal cancer is very often feasible, avoiding a permanent colostomy. It is well recognized that a large proportion of patients will experience altere...
High-frequency (kHz) stimulation of preganglionic pelvic nerve afferents can inhibit voiding in both anesthetized and conscious rats. The afferents travel via the S1 sacral nerve root, which is easier...
Sacral nerve stimulation (SNS) has revolutionized the management of certain intractable cases of fecal and urinary incontinence; however, the management of functional anorectal pain (FAP) has appeared...
Sacral nerve stimulation delivers nonpainful electrical pulses to the sacral nerves that modulate the reflexes that control the bladder, bowels, and pelvic floor musculature. This relatively simple pr...
Sacral nerve stimulation (SNS) is a surgical treatment of urinary and fecal incontinence. Despite its clinical efficacy, the mechanisms of action of SNS are still poorly known. This may be related to ...
The aim of this study is to determine the success rate, the success duration, the complication rate, maintenance effort and quality of life several years after sacral nerve modulation (SNM...
Faecal incontinence is a devastating condition causing psychological stress, affecting daily living and influences quality of life. Faecal incontinence affects 2,2 to 5 % of the adult popu...
Sacral nerve modulation (SNM) is an established treatment for refractory lower urinary tract and bowel dysfunction (Spinelli 2008). Pudendal nerve stimulation (PNS) has been proposed for p...
The purpose of this study is to determine whether Sacral Nerve Stimulation (SNS) for idiopathic faecal incontinence affect cortical and deep brain activity in an acute and chronically stim...
Fecal incontinence (FI), the involuntary loss of solid or liquid stool, is a stigmatising condition. It can have a distressing impact and restriction on quality of life. Obstetric-related ...
A nerve which originates in the lumbar and sacral spinal cord (L4 to S3) and supplies motor and sensory innervation to the lower extremity. The sciatic nerve, which is the main continuation of the sacral plexus, is the largest nerve in the body. It has two major branches, the TIBIAL NERVE and the PERONEAL NERVE.
A nerve which originates in the sacral spinal cord (S2 to S4) and innervates the PERINEUM, the external GENITALIA, the external ANAL SPHINCTER and the external urethral sphincter. It has three major branches: the perineal nerve, inferior anal nerves, and the dorsal nerve of penis or clitoris.
The medial terminal branch of the sciatic nerve. The tibial nerve fibers originate in lumbar and sacral spinal segments (L4 to S2). They supply motor and sensory innervation to parts of the calf and foot.
Pain associated with a damaged PUDENDAL NERVE. Clinical features may include positional pain with sitting in the perineal and genital areas, sexual dysfunction and FECAL INCONTINENCE and URINARY INCONTINENCE.
Perineurial cysts commonly found in the SACRAL REGION. They arise from the PERINEURIUM membrane within the SPINAL NERVE ROOTS. The distinctive feature of the cysts is the presence of spinal nerve root fibers within the cyst wall, or the cyst cavity itself.
Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia (BPH) Erectile Dysfunction Urology Urology is the branch of medicine concerned with the urinary tract and diseases that affect it. Examples include urethritis, urethrostenosis and incontinence. Urology is a su...
Surgery is a technology consisting of a physical intervention on tissues. All forms of surgery are considered invasive procedures; so-called "noninvasive surgery" usually refers to an excision that does not penetrate the structure being exci...
