Prospective randomized study evaluating ultrasound versus fluoroscopy guided sacral InterStim ® lead placement: A pilot study

ConclusionUltrasound guided placement of foramen needle during Stage I sacral neuromodulation results in reduction of radiation exposure to the patient, surgeon, and operating room staff. Further studies are necessary to determine the learning curve and efficacy of this technique.

Conclusions Three-dimensional ultrasound urodynamics can be used to identify differences in bladder shape comparing individuals with and without OAB. This method may be used to identify a subset of OAB patients with abnormal bladder shapes which may play a role in the pathophysiology of their OAB symptoms.
