Management of voiding dysfunction with an implantable neuroprosthesis.

Author information

Department of Urology, Cleveland Clinic Foundation, Ohio.


We have been very encouraged by these preliminary results concerning the efficacy and safety of functional electrical neuromodulation in the management of chronic voiding complaints. There are a large number of patients within the standard practice of urology who are potential candidates for this form of management. The techniques of peripheral nerve evaluation and implantation are relatively simple to master and free of significant risks or complications. If the long-term results of the multicenter clinical trial parallel our preliminary results, this is a technique which should be embraced by urologists as a significant therapeutic advance in our field.
