Percutaneous tibial nerve stimulation

14:00 - 15:30

Percutaneous Tibial Nerve Stimulation (PTNS) is a low-risk outpatient treatment for faecal incontinence, urinary urgency, and urinary
frequency and urge incontinence. PTNS is an effective treatment for overactive bladder syndrome for those patients who have failed
to respond to conservative measures. The workshop will provide an explanation of how PTNS works, how it is performed, patient criteria
and complications. NICE Guidelines and research evidence supporting the use of PTNS in practice will be discussed.
