Answer

Overall, CUA guidelines concur with the AUA third- and fourth-line treatment recommendations. The guidelines do note that sacral neuromodulation (SNM) is not yet approved by Health Canada or the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for the treatment of IC/BPS, but is indicated for urgency frequency syndrome and urgency urinary incontinence.
