The aim of this observational study is to evaluate the utilization in the clinical practice, effectiveness, explantation and re-intervention rate, complications and adverse events of InterStim system in patients indicated to Sacral Neuromodulation therapy for fecal incontinence.

This study will provide additional data about safety and effectiveness of the usage of InterStim system in fecal incontinence environment and at the same time will confirm that results from clinical trials can be transposed to clinical practice.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Proportion of implanted patients with a reduction of at least 50% of incontinence episodes per week, compared to baseline. [ Time Frame: 6 months (4-8 months) ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    The primary objective will evaluate the proportion of implanted patients that do not experience any serious adverse event or serious adverse device effect at 4-8 months of follow-up and show a reduction of at least 50% of incontinence episodes per week at the same timeframe, compared to baseline.

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Reduction of incontinence episodes per week [ Time Frame: 12 months (9-15 months) ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Reduction of evacuations per week [ Time Frame: 6 months (4-8 months) and 12 months (9-15 months) ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Reduction of urgency episodes per week [ Time Frame: 6 months (4-8 months) and 12 months (9-15 months) ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Retention delay [ Time Frame: 3 months (1-4 months), 6 months (5-8 months), 12 months (9-15 months) ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Complications and Adverse Events [ Time Frame: 3 months (1-4 months), 6 months (5-8 months), 12 months (9-15 months) ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
  • Fecal Incontinence severity [ Time Frame: 3 months (1-4 months), 6 months (5-8 months), 12 months (9-15 months) ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Quality of Life [ Time Frame: 3 months (1-4 months), 6 months (5-8 months), 12 months (9-15 months) ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Patient Satisfaction [ Time Frame: 6 months (5-8 months) and 12 months (9-15 months) ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
