InterStim Neurostimulator

Sacral Neuromodulation

Overview

The implanted InterStim™ system electrically stimulates the sacral nerve which is thought to normalize neural communication between the bladder and brain1 and between the bowel and brain.2


INDICATIONS

INTERSTIM THERAPY FOR URINARY CONTROL

InterStim Therapy for Urinary Control is indicated for the treatment of urinary retention and the symptoms of overactive bladder, including urinary urge incontinence and significant symptoms of urgency-frequency alone or in combination, in patients who have failed or could not tolerate more conservative treatments.

This therapy is not intended for patients with mechanical obstruction such as benign prostatic hypertrophy, cancer, or urethral stricture.

INTERSTIM THERAPY FOR BOWEL CONTROL

InterStim Therapy for Bowel Control is indicated for the treatment of chronic fecal incontinence in patients who have failed or are not candidates for more conservative treatments.


Product Details

FEATURES

The larger size of the InterStim neurostimulator over that of the InterStim II neurostimulator model 3058 allows for a larger battery with increased capacity. The InterStim neurostimulator is intended for patients who can accommodate a larger neurostimulator and will benefit from the use of a longer-lasting battery for their symptom control.

The InterStim neurostimulator:

  • Includes a larger battery with greater capacity than that of InterStim II neurostimulator model 3058
  • Accommodates three lead sizes – 28 cm, 33 cm, and 41 cm
  • Connects to the lead through a quadripolar extension
  • Incorporates radiopaque identification of the manufacturer and neurostimulator model number

The InterStim neurostimulator model 3023 uses a lead and an extension as part of the Sacral Neuromodulation system.

MRI CONDITIONALLY SAFE

InterStim model 3023 with an eligible serial number has FDA-approved labeling for 1.5 Tesla MRI head scans.

Refer to the MRI Guidelines for a complete list of conditions and instructions for use (available on the Medtronic Manuals Library).
