FDA Expands Indication For Axonics’ Incontinence System; Medtronic Claims Patent Infringement

Executive Summary

The US FDA approved Axonics’ r-SNM sacral neuromodulation system for treating overactive bladder and urinary retention on 14 November. The agency approved the same device for treating chronic fecal incontinence on 9 September. Axonics expects r-SNM to rival Medtronic's InterStim II non-rechargeable sacral neuromodulation system, but Medtronic claims the r-SNM technology infringes on Medtronic’s intellectual property.
