DEMONSTRATED RESULTS

Chronic fecal incontinence (FI) often causes profound emotional distress leading to social withdrawal and isolation.3 The InterStim™ therapy for bowel control prospective clinical study demonstrates that sacral neuromodulation (SNM) delivered by the InterStim™ system is safe, effective, and may offer your patients improved quality of life.1,2

The clinical study showed this therapy effectively helped patients who were failed by (or could not tolerate) more conservative treatments reduce their FI symptoms.

ADVERSE EVENTS

The InterStim™ therapy for bowel control prospective clinical study shows no unanticipated adverse device effects, no patient deaths related to the neurostimulator or therapy, and no surgical injuries during the test or implant procedures.1,2

The most common adverse events experienced during clinical studies included pain at implant sites, new pain, lead migration, infection, technical or device problems, adverse change in bowel or voiding function, and undesirable stimulation or sensations. Any of these may require additional surgery or cause return of symptoms.2
