Neuromodulation by stimulation of a sacral nerve (SNM) is a therapy for refractory OAB. More than 300,000 patients have been implanted with a recharge-free device (InterStim II, Medtronic), but this system is only approved for MRI head scans. Recently rechargeable MRI proof devices (Axonics r-SNM System, Interstim Micro) have been introduced. A rechargeable battery result in a smaller volume pulse generator and reduces operative IPG changes. However, there are also potential pitfalls associated with rechargeable devices. A shared decision-making process between patient and physician is recommended.

You can join in the debate via the comments section on the ICS website and ask Philip and Kari about their cases. If you can't join us live you can still add your questions in advance.

Don’t worry if you miss it live you can watch it back later here!
