Advancements in neuromodulation. 01/10/2019 - 30/09/2021

Abstract

Sacral neuromodulation is a minimally invasive treatment for several pelvic organ dysfunctions. The mechanism of action is largely unknown. This project will elucidate factors related to the mechanism of action, in order to improve patient selection and patient outcomes.

Standardisation of sacral neuromodulation 15/08/2017 - 14/08/2019

Abstract

Sacral neuromodulation is a minimally invasive treatment for several pelvic organ dysfunctions. currently intention to treat results vary between 50-60%. Reasons for the low success rate might be suboptimal patient selection or suboptimal lead placement. This project aims to identify factors related to lead placement that might influence outcome of treatment.

Types of electrical current for diagnosis and treatment of lower urinary tract. 01/10/2006 - 30/09/2010

Abstract

Electrical stimulation is used for diagnosis in the lower urinary tract and for treatment of different urological pathologies. In the vast majority square wave pulses are used but with limited success. We explore the use of alternative types of electrical current which can be more specific and more physiological both in electro diagnosis as in electrotherapy.
