The Axonics® System offers the ability to trial the therapy and assess symptom improvement prior to having the patient undergo the full implant procedure.
The Axonics System offers 2 types of evaluations: a Basic Trial and an Advanced Trial
A Basic Trial, or Peripheral Nerve Evaluation (PNE), utilizes a temporary lead and External Trial Stimulator (ETS). The temporary lead is placed via a minimally invasive outpatient procedure.
An Advanced Trial utilizes a tined lead that is connected to the ETS via a Percutaneous Extension. This option offers a longer trial period to test the efficacy of therapy for your patient with the permanent tined lead.
Trial and permanent procedures are consistent with the current Sacral Neuromodulation best practices.
The Axonics System features the ability to utilize intuitive tools like the Clinician Programmer to test stimulation and program therapeutic levels, and a Patient Remote Control that can be easily used to adjust therapy levels for both trial and permanent therapies.
