External Trial System

Axonics® Therapy offers the ability to trial the therapy and assess symptom improvement prior to having your patient undergo the full implant procedure. The trial is not specific to a system.

External Trial System

Offering two types of evaluations:
a Basic Trial and an Advanced Trial

Axonics® System Basic Trial

Basic 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.

Axonics® System Advanced Trial

Advanced Trial

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 the therapy with the permanent tined lead.

Trial and permanent procedures are consistent with the current Sacral Neuromodulation best practices.
