|Aims and Objectives|
Sacral nerve stimulation is a well accepted minimal invasive treatment for certain bladder and bowel dysfunctions, but tibial and pudendal nerve stimulation are currently emerging as alternatives.
The aim of the workshop is to guide decision making in patients in which neuromodulation therapy is considered, and to bridge the gap between bladder and bowel management.
The similarities and differences between the different forms of neuromodulation will be discussed focusing on mechanism of action, clinical efficacy, patient selection criteria and adverse events.
At the end of the workshop, the audience should have a clear overview of the different modalities and a possible algorithm to choose the optimal method for the individual patient.
