Neuromodulation Devices Stimulate Opportunities In Urology

Executive Summary

Neuromodulation for urological indications, notably overactive bladder (OAB), has been dominated since the late 1990s by Medtronic’s sacral-nerve stimulation system InterStim, with the more recent addition of Cogentix Medical’s Urgent PC for tibial nerve stimulation. Yet only a fraction of OAB patients receive effective neuromodulation treatment, and several companies hope to lower barriers to this modality by developing alternative devices for urological indications.
