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
