Neuromodulation System

Treatment for bladder and bowel control

Urgent PC is a low-risk outpatient treatment for faecal incontinence and the overactive bladder symptoms of urinary urgency, urinary frequency and urge incontinence. Since 2003, healthcare professionals have used the Urgent PC Neuromodulation System as an effective office treatment for men and women suffering from faecal incontinence and overactive bladder. Urgent PC is up to 80% effective, even after behavourial measures and drugs have failed.

How does urgent PC work?

The Urgent PC system delivers a specific type of neuromodulation called percutaneous tibial nerve stimulation (PTNS). During treatment, a small, slim needle electrode is inserted near your ankle. The needle electrode is then connected to the battery-powered stimulator. During your 30-minute treatment, mild impulses from the stimulator travel through the needle electrode, along your leg and to the nerves in your pelvis that control bladder and bowel function. This process is also referred to as neuromodulation.

How soon will I see results with Urgent PC?

Because Urgent PC gently modifies the signals to achieve bladder and bowel control, it usually takes 5-7 weeks for symptoms to change. However, patients respond at different rates. In a review of about 100 patients who had success with Urgent PC, symptoms improved anywhere between 2-12 weeks. For about 20% of these patients, some symptoms didn't improve until after 8 weeks.1

There is no way to anticipate who will respond earlier, later or not at all. That's why it is important to receive the 12 recommended treatments before you and your physician evaluate whether this therapy is an appropriate and effective choice for you.
