Urgent PC PTNS FI

Office-based Treatment of Faecal Incontinence

Urgent PC neuromodulation system is designed for the treatment of Faecal Incontinence.

The Urgent PC advantage

  • Minimally invasive treatment easily administered in a clinic – No need for hospitalisation or anaesthesia
  • Well-tolerated by patients with few associated side-effects
  • Can treat both OAB and Faecal Incontinence
  • Suitable for patients when conventional therapies have failed
  • May be used alone or with other therapies

Results supported by clinical evidence*

  • Growing number of publications highlight the clincial performance of PTNS with Urgent PC for the treatment of Faecal Incontinenence
  • Most studies show >60% patient response rates (range of 38 – 82%) 1-9
  • PTNS provides superior performance compared to TENS and Sham treatment 5
  • In a meta-analysis, percutaneous PTNS treatment provided statistically significant decrease in FI episodes in all nine studies evaluating the treatment 10
