[Comment] Percutaneous tibial nerve stimulation in faecal incontinence

Faecal incontinence is a severe disabling condition that affects almost 20% of adult women; more than 90% of patients with incontinence are female.1 One of the many major problems of this condition is its multifactorial nature with no one consistently successful treatment (table), and new, better, and more durable alternatives are being sought. Replacement therapies offer significant improvements in faecal incontinence in more than 50% of patients, but at the cost of often high morbidity. Other augmentation therapies are less morbid but also less effective.
