Medtronic Has Announced FDA Approval of InterStimÂ® Therapy for Bowel Control!
Unique Sacral Nerve Stimulation Therapy Now Available for Treatment of Chronic Fecal Incontinence!
Medtronic, Inc. (NYSE:MDT) in a recent press release announced U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approval of InterStimÂ® Therapy for Bowel Control. InterStim Therapy, previously available to treat the symptoms of overactive bladder and non-obstructive urinary retention, is now also approved for the treatment of chronic fecal incontinence in patients who have failed or are not candidates for more conservative treatments.
InterStim Therapy for Bowel Control is a new, minimally invasive option proven to improve or restore bowel control in more than 80 percent of patients who received the therapy in a multi-center clinical trial. The implantable InterStim system uses mild electrical stimulation of the sacral nerves to influence the behavior of the pelvic floor muscles and bowel. As a result, the therapy significantly reduced fecal incontinent episodes for a high percentage of clinical trial patients. InterStim Therapy is the only bowel control treatment option that allows patients and physicians to determine probable success of the therapy through a test stimulation procedure prior to committing to long-term therapy.
