English Functional magnetic stimulation (FMS) is a new technique for the conservative treatment ofUrinary incontinence (UI), based on magnetic induction. It induces controlled depolarization of thenerves, resulting in pelvic muscle contraction and sacral S2-S4 roots neuromodulation. The aim of thisstudy was to assess the efficacy of the new 3 Tesla FMS chair, both in patients with pure stress urinaryincontinence (SUI) and in women with pure overactive bladder (OAB) symptoms. A prospectiveobservational study was conducted in our urogynaecologic unit. All the patients involved wereconsecutive women with pure SUI or pure OAB symptoms treated by a 3 Tesla electromagneticchair. The primary outcome was a subjective outcome evaluation by the PGI-I Scale and a patient-satisfaction scale. The secondary outcome was the change score of the UDI-6, IIQ-7, ICIQ-SF andOAB-q SF questionnaires from baseline to final visit. At 2 months follow-up, 28 out of 60 patients(47%) with SUI symptoms and 20 out of 40 patients (50%) with OAB symptoms declared themselvescured. Considering cured and improved patients, the subjective cure rates were 68.3% (41/60) and70% (28/40) for patients with SUI and OAB symptoms, respectively. The results of this study showedthat the 3 Tesla electromagnetic chair may be an effective option for the treatment of UI.
