Those who suffer from an overactive bladder could now have the opportunity to have a rechargeable, wireless device fitted to ease their condition, a draft guidance from NICE has said.
The Axonics sacral neuromodulation (SNM) could potentially save the NHS in the region of £6,200 per patient, should it last more than six years. The device is inserted under the skin in the upper buttock, and stimulates the sacral nerve with an electric current via an electrode, which is attached to an implantable pulse generator which stimulates the nerves associated with bladder function.
