Sacral Neurostimulation reasonable to treat chronic Idiopathie constipation Ghislain Devroede Département de chirurgie Faculté de médecine et des Sciences de la Santé Université de Sherbrooke Québec, Canada
QUALITY OF LIFE IS MARKEDLY IMPROVED IN PATIENTS WITH FECAL INCONTINENCE AFTER SACRAL NERVE STIMULATION

Sacral Nerve Stimulation (SNS) SNS usually stimulates S Europe - Chronic pelvic and lower urinary and intestinal tract disorders 1997/1999 USA - UI / UF and Retention 2011 USA - Chronic fecal incontinence Note: FDA's approval is based solely on 12-month data.
SNS Therapy Staged Procedure Electrode in S3 Test stimulation days Implantation
Sacral nerve stimulation for fecal incontinence ______________________________________________________ North American SNS Study Group (FDA Approved Protocol) Informed consent :285 Test stimulation :133 (152 rejected by inclusion / (tined lead electrode) exclusion criteria) Interstim Device :120 (47%) Follow up (years) :5 (0.2 – 7.0)
Frequency of incontinent episodes or days per week (follow-up to baseline : P <.001) 3 6
Percent of patients with >50% improvement in incontinent episodes per week
Fecal incontinence severity index assessment (FISI) (follow-up to baseline : P <.001) 3 6
Fecal incontinence quality of life assessment (FIQOL score) (follow-up to baseline : P <.001) 3 6
Score improvement for each question of the FIQOL Note: Question 1 rating “general state of health” has a reverse scale, with 1 being “Excellent” and 5 being “Poor”. The other questions use a scale of 1-4, with 1 being worse and 4 being best.
Individual QOL questions at baseline and 48 months
Improved quality of life after sacral neurostimulation for fecal incontinence FOOD:Amount Restaurants SOCIAL:Going out (movies, church, friends) Staying overnight away from home Traveling (trains, plane) (ALL P < 0.001) n = 120
Improved quality of life after sacral neurostimulation for fecal incontinence INTIMACY:Less frequent sexual encounters than wished Fears of sexual encounters FEELINGS:Different Not enjoying life Ashamed Depressed (ALL P < 0.001) n = 120
Sacral nerve stimulation or modulation ? We know for sure that we stimulate : Variables :- sacral root - body side - voltage - frequency - sensation site (anus, perineal body, vulva) - anal contraction; toe movement We do not know what we modulate
There is focal brain activation during sacral nerve stimulation (L. LUNDBY, A. MOLLER, S. BUNTZEND, K. KROGH, K. VANG, A. GJEDDE, S. LAURBERG, Diseases of the Colon & Rectum 2011; 54; )

The ghost of my mother ______________________________________________________ RC :Fecal incontinence by pudendal neuropathy (no effective treatment) Preoperative decision: Wexner 17/20 Anal electromyography : Pudendal neuropathy (EAS/PR) Functional rectal examination : Pudendal neuropathy Interstim implant: Wexner 0/20 SNS Off: Wexner 0/20 No visit for one year SNS Out: Wexner 0/20 Suzanne L.
The ghost of my mother ______________________________________________________ « My mother never loved me » BIRTH :Her mother gives her in adoption Her father brings her back home ORPHAN OF HER FATHER ORPHAN OF HER MOTHER : She is disinherited 21/9/2011 :« Don't say I'm crazy » «The corpse of my dead mother came into my bed. My guardian angel, at the ceiling told me I was cured. » SNS OFFGoes to the Dominican Republic Goes to Mexico No fecal incontinence 23/11/2012 :Interstim removed Suzanne L.
