Urinary Urgency Incontinence (UUI) affects millions of men and women of all ages, and can impact nearly every aspect of daily life - from work performance, to family life, to social interactions. UUI symptoms can vary from person to person, but typically include:
Right now, doctors at select centers in the US are conducting a new clinical study that may be able to help. The study is for the Neuspera® sacral neuromodulation (SNM) system - an investigational device designed to reduce urinary leakage and improve bladder function.
What causes Urinary Urge Incontinence (UUI)?
When the bladder system is working properly, nerves that control the bladder sense that the bladder is getting full, telling you it’s time to urinate. However, in people with UUI, these bladder nerves are overactive, telling you it’s time to urinate before your bladder is full. Your bladder muscle follows by contracting too early, causing the bladder to empty before it should.
The Neuspera SNM System
The Neuspera sacral neuromodulation (SNM) system is an investigational device designed to reduce urinary leakage through a minimally-invasive, outpatient procedure. The Neuspera procedure uses a microimplant that is placed near the sacral nerve through a needle-like incision in the lower back. Once placed, the Neuspera implant delivers gentle, adjustable electrical stimulation to the sacral nerve to help calm the bladder.
The Neuspera SNM System is currently being offered at select centers in the US through a new clinical research study. If you qualify and choose to join the study, you will receive the Neuspera System and all study-related care at no cost.
Many men and women living with Urinary Urge Incontinence (UUI) have not experienced lasting relief with medications or other treatments. The Neuspera System, an investigational device, is designed to reduce urinary leakage and improve bladder function. If you qualify and choose to join the study, you will receive:
