    Background: Sacral nerve stimulation (SNS) is used as a first-line treatment for faecal incontinence when conservative measures have failed. However, one-third of patients fail to benefit from this treatment. We hypothesised that sacral afferent stimulation can be maximised using pudendal nerve...

    This study aims to report the topography of the extrapelvic part of the pudendal nerve (EPPN) and its relationship with the sacrospinous ligament and the pudendal artery. The pudendal nerve (PN) was dissected by a gluteal approach in 40 cases. The morphology of the EPPN, its topography and the...

    The objective of this study was to evaluate the possibilities of reinnervation of the gracilis muscle, transposed around the anus, by the pudendal nerve using an end-to-side nerve anastomosis. This study was carried out in 14 cases (7 adult human cadavers bilaterally). The gracilis muscle and...

    The article presents information on pudendal nerve entrapment syndrome secondary to obturator internus muscle edema which is an unusual cause for a rare neuropathy. A rare cause of pudendal neuropathy (PN) because of compression by edematous obturator internus muscle is discussed. The major...

    The ability to access selectively distal nerve branches at the level of the compound pudendal nerve (PN) would allow control of multiple neural pathways and genitourinary functions at a single location. Nerve cuff electrodes can selectively stimulate individual fascicles; however the PN...

    In view of the paucity of literature, this study was undertaken to reappraise the gross anatomy of the sacrotuberous ligament (STL), with the objective of providing an accurate anatomical basis for clinical conditions involving the STL. We studied the gross anatomy of the STL in 50 formalin...
