Interdisciplinary Neurosurgery: Advanced Techniques and Case Management
Interstitial cystitis/bladder pain syndrome is a chronic, visceral pain syndrome that affects one in every twenty women. Sacral roots stimulation is successfully used to mitigate pain and urinary symptoms when non surgical treatments are ineffective. We report a patient with intractable back and lower extremity pain for which a paddle spinal cord stimulator was implanted. As a byproduct, she had complete resolution of her long standing pain from interstitial cystitis/bladder pain syndrome.
