Sacral (S3) segmental nerve stimulation as a treatment for urge incontinence in patients with detrusor Instability: Results of chronic electrical stimulation using an implantable neural prosthesis

Abstract

PURPOSE We studied the effects of sacral (S3) nerve stimulation in patients with urge incontinence due to detrusor instability. MATERIALS AND METHODS A permanent S3 foramen electrode was implanted in 18 patients (average age 46 years) who had shown a good response during temporary stimulation via a percutaneously placed wire electrode. Average followup… (More)
