After successful implementation of sacral nerve stimulation in the treatment of fecal incontinence, the first cohort studies showed promising results for sacral neuromodulation in the treatment of con...
There has been some controversy regarding the efficacy of sacral nerve stimulation (SNS) for the treatment of chronic constipation, due to less positive outcomes and concerns about cost-effectiveness ...
Sacral nerve stimulation (SNS) may provide long-term symptom relief to patients suffering from chronic constipation. Patients are currently selected for SNS using a 2-week peripheral nerve evaluation ...
Sacral nerve stimulation (SNS) is frequently used for constipation and fecal incontinence in the adult literature. The purpose of this study is to perform a systemic review of the literature for SNS f...
Sacral nerve stimulation has been used to treat overactive bladder. This study evaluated the effects of stimulation using different pulse widths on the inhibition of bladder overactivity by sacral ner...
Multicenter European study to evaluate efficacy and safety of sacral nerve stimulation with InterStim Therapy to treat fecal incontinence or constipation
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...
At a tertiary referral centre, 10 patients (4 male and 6 female; mean age 49.8 years) were given neuromodulation via the posterior tibial nerve to the sacral nerve for 30 min on 10 consecu...
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.
The electrical response evoked in a muscle or motor nerve by electrical or magnetic stimulation. Common methods of stimulation are by transcranial electrical and TRANSCRANIAL MAGNETIC STIMULATION. It is often used for monitoring during neurosurgery.
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...
