Abstract

During the last years electric stimulation has been widely used for the treatment of chronic lower urinary tract dysfunctions, by stimulating the pelvic floor, the spinal cord of intravesically. Patients to be selected for permanent implantation, are first tested by a 3-5 days trial stimulation: during this period a wire electrode connected to an external stimulator is positioned percutaneously in one of the sacral foramina (best S3) near a sacral root. From April 94 to May 98, 47 patients (13 males and 34 females) with therapy resistant lower urinary tract dysfunctions for over 6 months underwent 63 PNE testing. In the female group (34 pts.) 16 out of 34 (47%) had a complete response during the PNE, 4 moderate, 3 slight (they are scheduled for another PNE or SANS) and 11 none. Ten pts. underwent a permanent implantation of a sacral root stimulator with a stable improvement of their symptoms at a mean follow up of 23.1 months (47-3).
