First Patients Implanted with Axonics® Sacral Neuromodulation System in U.S. FDA Pivotal Study
Axonics Modulation Technologies, Inc., developer of the first rechargeable sacral neuromodulation (r-SNM™) system for the treatment of urinary and bowel dysfunction, today announced that the first 11 patients of the ARTISAN-SNM study have been implanted in four centers located in the United States and Western Europe.
ARTISAN-SNM is a single-arm, prospective pivotal study designed to demonstrate the safety and effectiveness of the Axonics r-SNM system as an aid in the treatment of urinary urge incontinence in patients who have failed or could not tolerate more conservative treatments. Axonics expects to implant approximately 120 patients at 15 centers of excellence located in the U.S. and Western Europe.
The ARTISAN-SNM clinical study is being conducted under an Investigational Device Exemption (IDE) granted by the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA), and is designed to gain FDA Premarket Approval in the United States.
“Our clinical study is off to a fast start, led by investigators eager to use our product,” said Raymond W. Cohen, Chief Executive Officer of Axonics. “Given the number of centers who wished to participate in the study and worldwide patient demand for SNM therapy, we expect to complete enrollment in record time.”
