Abstract

Interstitial cystitis is the most disabling nonmalignant disorder seen by urologists. Chronic debilitating urinary bladder symptoms (severe pain and pelvic floor muscular dysfunction) often progress despite maximal medical attempts at management. Although the exact cause remains unknown, a neuropathic etiology has recently been suggested(1,2). This case report describes the use of Selective Nerve Root Stimulation (SNRS) for the treatment of intractable pelvic pain and motor dysfunction in a patient with Interstitial cystitis (IC).
