Incontinence treatment wins Canadian approval:
This article was originally published in Clinica
The Canadian government has approved for sale a new device that treats urinary incontinence by stimulating nerves that affect bladder control. The SANS device, made by UroSurge of Coralville, Iowa, sends a mild electrical current through a fine needle inserted near nerves in the ankle. The stimulation is carried up the nerve bundle to the sacral region of the spine that controls bladder function. Patients normally receive one 30-minute stimulation session per week for 10 to 12 weeks followed by customised treatment. The device will be distributed in Canada by Inter V Medical of Montreal.
