Abstract

Although neuromodulation is well established for the treatment of non-neurogenic lower urinary tract symptoms, recent literature supports its use in the patient having LUTS associated with a neurologic condition. Sacral neuromodulation, in particular, may see new use as a modality to facilitate neurologic remodeling in spinal cord injured patients as well as children. As a therapeutic option, sacral neuromodulation and dorsal genital nerve stimulation may one day become more effective and more efficient utilizing the concept of closed- loop feedback, where electro-neurogram and bladder pressure data are incorporated into stimulation routines. In addition, some older therapies are reviewed that have recently demonstrated success in this patient population.
