- Nerve stimulation works best when combined with medication
- Stimulation using subcutaneous implants looks promising
- Literature review without systematic research design
Patients with an overactive bladder who do not benefit from behavioural therapy or medication, may be able to reduce their symptoms through stimulation of the posterior tibial nerve. In this non-systematic literature review, British physician-researchers describe the working mechanisms, dis-/advantages and treatment effects of three different types of nerve stimulation techniques.
