Uroplasty Announces Patent Issuance Related to the Urgent(R) PC System
The Urgent PC Neuromodulation System is a minimally invasive, office-based, nonsurgical system designed to deliver retrograde access to the sacral plexus through percutaneous electrical stimulation of the posterior tibial nerve. The Urgent PC system combines a pulse generator and a lead set to transfer electrical current from the pulse generator to the posterior tibial nerve, and includes a single use feature to prevent reuse of the lead set. By preventing reuse of lead sets, the Urgent PC System eliminates the health risks otherwise associated with re-using the same electrodes.
“We are very pleased that the United States Patent Office has awarded this patent on the unique features of our stimulation systems and methods,” said
