Urgent PC

Urgent PC Neuromodulation System is designed for the treatment of overactive bladder and associated symptoms of urinary urgency, urinary frequency and urge incontinence.

The Urgent PC is an effective, office-based method for stimulating confidence and control in patients when conservative therapies fail.

Urgent PC is a Simple Procedure

  • Provides percutaneous tibial nerve stimulation: a slim needle electrode, inserted near the tibial nerve, carries electric impulses from a hand-held stimulator to the sacral plexus
  • 30-minute treatment sessions
  • After the 12 initial treatments, some patients may need occasional sessions to sustain symptom relief
  • Most common side-effects are temporary and include mild pain or skin inflammation at or near the stimulation site

 

 

Results Supported by Clinical Evidence*

  • Patient response rates of up to 80%
  • Documented reductions in daytime voiding frequency, night-time voiding frequency and leakage episodes
  • Statistically superior to validated sham therapy in a double-blind RCT
  • Results maintained at a three year mean follow-up when initial series was followed by maintenance therapy
  • In a double-blind placebo study, 71% of patients responded (defined as >50% reduction in voids per day) to treatment with Urgent PC. According to this criteria, no patients in the placebo group were considered responders.
