Background and aims. The somatomotor innervation pattern has been shown to differ in patients undergoing percutaneous nerve evaluation for sacral nerve stimulation. In some patients bilateral stimulation might improve clinical outcome; however, only single-channel pulse generators have until now been available. We report a patient with fecal incontinence after surgery for rectal carcinoma in whom a dual-channel, individually programmable, pulse generator permitted implantation of… CONTINUE READING
