Abstract: The overactive bladder syndrome (OAB) negatively affects the daily life of many people worldwide and conservative treatments, such as antimuscarinics, not always bring relief and/or are associated with considerable side effects resulting in treatment failure. Second line treatment options used to be invasive surgical procedures. However, less radical, minimally invasive and reversible alternatives, such as sacral neuromodulation and botulinum toxin A have emerged. Of these, only sacral neuromodulation with InterStim Therapy has been approved for OAB and been recommended by the International Consultation on Incontinence (ICI) in 2004. Nevertheless, depending of country rules and habits, both seem to be used by urologists in clinical practice for treating idiopathic OAB (I OAB). Therefore, this review attempts to provide an update on the available clinical evidence concerning the efficacy and safety, and the current position of sacral neuromodulation and botulinum toxin A in the second line management of adults with I OAB.
