Abstract: Occipital nerve stimulation (ONS) has been used for many years for the treatment of refractory headache and head pain. Its effect has been documented in case series and cohort studies. The positive clinical benefits, however, have been accompanied by high complication rates, predominantly due to lead migration and breakage. We report our institutional experience with performing occipital nerve stimulation using a dedicated, custom made, ONS lead.

Abstract: Fifty six-years-old man with history of asthma and recurrent urinary tract infections, was presenting infrequent urine leakage for five years. The clinical examination was unremarkable. The urodynamic assessment revealed an overactive bladder with limited closing pressure. Intravenous Urography was performed and did not show any obstructive abnormalities, but we found out an incidental spina bifida of sacral vertebrae (Figure 1A).
