Interstitial Cystitis

Maher et al.7 studied 15 women prospectively and found increases in mean voided volume (90-143mL), frequency decreased from 20 to 11, nocturia decreased from 6 to 2 times, and mean bladder pain decreased from 8.9 to 2.4 points on a scale of 1 to 10. Quality-of-life measures, namely, the UDI-6 (the short form of urogenital distress inventory) and SF-36 Health Survey also showed improved parameters during the stimulation period. Sacral neuromodulation shows promise for both the urgency/frequency and pain components of interstitial cystitis.
