Attempts to relax the urethral sphincter include the use of alpha-blockers, injection of botulinum toxin or sacral nerve
He explained that during the procedure, the surgeon will insert an electrical pulse generator, like a pacemaker, under the skin in the upper, outer quadrant of the buttock and the generator is attached to a thin lead wire with a small electrode tip, which is anchored near the sacral nerve
Permanent sacral nerve
stimulation (SNS) can eliminate the often embarrassing and inconvenient symptoms of urinary incontinence.
An overview of techniques is followed by several chapters that include neuropathic foot pain and sacral nerve
Some examples are spinal cord stimulators (IPG implants), which are similar to pacemakers; deep brain stimulators; vagus nerve stimulators; sacral nerve
stimulators; and gastric electric stimulators.
MINNAPOLIS -- Improvements in fecal incontinence achieved with sacral nerve
stimulation appear to persist at least 3 years, based on the results of a study involving 133 patients.
This edition incorporates 20 new chapters on radiofrequency lesionings, decompression and compression techniques, nerve blocks, percutaneous disketomies, percutaneous kyphoplasty, sacral nerve
stimulation, cervical cordotomy, and dorsal root entry zone lesioning techniques.
