The aim of this study is to report on the impact of neuromodulation to the superior hypogastric plexus in patients with bladder atonia secondary to pelvic surgery. Methods: In 4 consecutive patients with bladder atonia secondary to pelvic surgery, we performed a laparoscopic implantation of a neurostimulator-LION procedure-to the entire superior hypogastric plexus. Results: Of the 4 reported patients, 3 are able to partially void or empty their bladder. Conclusions: If the presented results could be obtained in further patients and maintained in long-term follow-up, the LION procedure to the superior hypogastric plexus could change the management of bladder function in patients with bladder atonia
