Sacral nerve stimulation (SNS) by means of an (electrode and stimulator) electronic device is a minimally invasive treatment for fecal incontinence (FI), which arises as a therapeutic alternative to people who do not respond to conservative treatment and have a structurally intact sphincter or partial lesions of both sphincters. The incidence and the personal, family, work and social impact, together with the cost of SNS, make it imperative to review the effectiveness and safety of this treatment to assess its introduction and improve the quality of care for affected people.
