Test without limits. The InterStim™ basic evaluation system includes a reengineered lead designed with you and the patient in mind. Say yes to the test.DOWNLOAD THE EVALUATION BROCHURE
The InterStim™ basic evaluation starts with a quick in-office procedure and continues for 3 to 7 days, depending on the patient. During the trial, patients track their symptoms to see if the InterStim™ system has the potential to provide symptom improvement.
Basic Evaluation Lead Comparison
The InterStim™ basic evaluation starts with a minimally invasive procedure that can be done in-office. During this procedure a thin wire is inserted in the patient’s upper buttock and attached to an external neurostimulator. Over the following three to seven days, the patient tracks their symptoms. After the evaluation, the results are reviewed and the clinician can determine the best treatment option with the patient. If the test is inconclusive, testing can continue using the InterStim™ advanced evaluation.
The reengineered InterStim™ basic evaluation lead is designed to minimize electrode movement during daily activities.* High-contrast insertion depth markers make it easy to position the needle tip accurately. Clinicians can use the same familiar procedures for placing the lead and removing it at the end of the trial.
A small, discreet device that is easy for patients to conceal under clothing.
An intuitive programming platform that allows patients to turn therapy on/off or change it at your request.
Complications can occur with the evaluation, including tissue damage, infection, and technical problems with the device. Patients should be instructed on operating the programmer and given precautions related to the evaluation.
