    New! Innovative Ureteroscopy Solutions
    This year at USANZ, we are thrilled to be launching Innovex. Innovex is the only single-use flexible ureteroscope in the market that features 275º deflection in both directions to access lower pole stones, 160K high resolution, and an 8.7 Fr outer diameter which fits through a 10 Fr access sheath.  




     

    Urinary Continence Solutions
    Visit our booth during the breaks to see a live Urgent PC demonstration. Urgent PC is a minimally invasive PTNS treatment for OAB, that can be easily administered in your rooms by your nurse. PTNS for the treatment of idiopathic OAB is now funded by the MBS.

    • Bayesian model estimated ~77% maintained moderate or marked improvement
    • All improvements from baseline were significant (p<0.0001)
    • Median voids/day from 12.0 (IQR 10.3 – 13.7) to 8.7 (7.3 – 11.3)
    • Median voids/night from 2.7 (IQR 1.7 – 3.3) to 1.7 (IQR 1.0 – 2.7)
    • Median urge incontinence episodes/day from 3.3 (IQR 0.7 – 6.0) to 0.3 (IQR 0.0 – 1.0)
