Medtronic which is Irish medical device maker has secured CE Mark approval for its InterStim Micro neurostimulator and InterStim SureScan MRI leads.
By giving full-body MRI scan eligible, lifestyle-friendly choices with InterStim Micro or InterStim II neurostimulators, the firm has enhanced accessibility to sacral neuromodulation (SNM) therapy for European patients.
InterStim Micro is a rechargeable device, which provides sacral neuromodulation therapy to treat overactive bladder (OAB), faecal incontinence (FI) and non-obstructive urinary retention.
InterStim Micro is said to be 80 percent smaller than the already existing recharge-free InterStim II neurostimulator.
The company stated that the offerings will have a life span of 15 years with its Overdrive battery technology.
SureScan leads are present for utilization in both InterStim Microsystem, as well as in upcoming implants of the existing recharge-free InterStim II. It also assists in full-body 1.5 and 3 Tesla MRI-conditional scans.
Medtronic further stated that it is the only firm in Europe to give patients with a choice between rechargeable and recharge-free systems, which are both full-body MRI-conditional.
