Abstract

Temporary sacral nerve stimulation for faecal incontinence caused by pelvic radiation injuries was successful in 7 of 13 patients (54%). The improvement of total incontinence episodes during the temporary stimulation period was a median of 83% (range 25-93%). This may be a viable treatment option for radiation-induced faecal incontinence.
