The aim of the workshop is to explore and discuss the real aims of our efforts and the future directions of neuromodulation and neurostimulation to treat sacral area dysfunctions. To start with, the speakers will present an in-depth review of the state of the art concerning latest technological advancements in the field of sacral neuromodulation. Later, emerging new approaches, from pudendal nerve stimulation to chronic tibial neuromodulation, will be discussed rigorously to present available data and evidence from ongoing studies. At the conclusion, participants will know how to approach new systems of neuromodulation and neurostimulation for sacral area dysfunctions.

Learning Objectives

  • To improve the clinical outcomes through neuromodulation and neurostimulation in people affected by sacral area dysfunctions
  • To find out an answer and propose alternative strategies in case of non-stable results or contraindications for sacral neuromodulation
  • To open new fields in neuromodulation and direct stimulation to treat sacral area dysfunctions
