Have You Tried Everything To Treat Your Incontinence?
Do you have trouble getting to the bathroom before leaks occur? You may qualify to participate in a new study.
NAFC is partnering with a company to recruit new patients for a clinical study for the Intibia™ System – an investigational device designed to treat urgency urinary incontinence through an outpatient procedure
What Causes Urgency Urinary Incontinence (UUI)?
When the bladder system is working correctly, nerves that control the bladder sense that the bladder is getting full, telling you it’s time to urinate.
However, in people with UUI, these bladder nerves are overactive, telling you it’s time to urinate before your bladder is full. Your bladder muscle follows by contracting too early, causing the bladder to empty before it should, resulting in unwanted bladder leaks.
What Is The Intibia™ System?
The Intibia System is an investigational device designed to improve UUI symptoms. The Intibia System is a small implant that is placed just above the ankle, near the tibial nerve through an outpatient procedure. The tibial nerve communicates with nerves that control bladder function. Once placed, the Intibia device delivers pulses to the nerves responsible for bladder control.
The Intibia System is currently being offered at select centers in the U.S. through a new clinical research study. If you qualify and choose to join the study, you will receive the Intibia System and all study-related care at no cost
Do I Qualify?
If you suffer from urgency urinary incontinence and have not had success with other treatments, you may be eligible to participate. If you qualify and choose to join the study, you will receive:
- Study-related evaluations of your UUI condition from a local physician
- The Intibia System and all study-related care at no cost
- Compensation for your time and effort to attend periodic follow-up visits
You May Be Eligible If You:
- Are between the ages of 22-80
- Have a history of urgency urinary incontinence for at least 6 months
- Have not had success with other UUI treatments (e.g. bladder training, timed voiding, fluid management, etc.)
- Are willing to undergo an outpatient procedure to treat your UUI symptoms
