Sacral neuromodulation in the treatment of severe anal incontinence. Forty consecutive cases treated in one institution.

Abstract : INTRODUCTION: Sacral neuromodulation is a recognized therapeutic option in severe anal incontinence from neurogenic origins, when medical treatment has failed. METHODS: We report the results of this procedure applied in 40 consecutive patients operated on by a single surgeon from August 2001 to June 2004. Mean duration of incontinence was 5 years. There were 33 women and 7 men of mean age 59 (range 29-89). All patients had had medical treatment, 26 had had physiotherapy and 9 had been previously operated on for that problem. Neuromodulation consisted in a temporary electrical stimulation test followed by implantation of a stimulator in case of efficacy. RESULTS: Twenty nine patients had a positive test and were implanted. Ten had a negative test and one is waiting for implantation. From the 29 patients, 23 had uneventful postoperative course. Incontinence score varied from 17 before neuromodulation to 6 after in the 24 patients who were improved. Mean resting pressure, mean maximum squeeze pressure and mean duration of squeeze pressure did not change from pre to postoperative period. CONCLUSION: Sacral neuromodulation is a safe and efficacious procedure in properly selected anal incontinent patients. However, we observed no correlation between clinical and manometric data.
