Use of New Rechargeable Battery and MRI-Friendly Technologies in Sacral Neuromodulation Systems to Treat Fecal Incontinence

1. Abstract Sacral neuromodulation (SNM) is a minimally invasive therapeutic technique that has been used to effectively treat overactive bladder and bowel dysfunction. There have been, however, several obstacles with standard, non-rechargeable SNM devices such as frequent battery replacement and complications with the conditional safety for full-body Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI). Recently, rechargeable and MRI-friendly …
