A pilot study of chronic pudendal nerve stimulation for faecal incontinence for those who have failed sacral nerve stimulation

Abstract

Sacral nerve stimulation (SNS) is used as a first-line treatment for faecal incontinence when conservative measures have failed. However, one-third of patients fail to benefit from this treatment. We hypothesised that sacral afferent stimulation can be maximised using pudendal nerve stimulation (PNS) and this may be of benefit in this patient group. The aim… (More)
