What is the future of Sacral Anterior Root Stimulation (SARS)?
Sacral Anterior Root Stimulation was developed by Giles Brindley to produce bladder emptying after spinal cord injury, and it has been commercially available for many years. It has often been combined with posterior sacral rhizotomy to improve continence and protect the upper tracts. The benefits of these procedures have been documented in numerous publications and they have been used in several thousand patients. However, this is a relatively small proportion of patients with spinal cord injury. We invite your opinions on restoring neurogenic bladder function by electrical stimulation:
