Uroplasty Announces Patent Issuance Related to the Urgent(R) PC System
Date:7/13/2009

MINNEAPOLIS, July 13 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Uroplasty, Inc. (NYSE Amex: UPI), a medical device company that develops, manufactures and markets innovative proprietary products for the treatment of voiding dysfunctions, announced today the issuance of United States Patent No. 7,536,226 entitled, "Electro-Nerve Stimulator System and Methods." The patent covers the company's Urgent(R) PC system and stimulation methods for treatment of the overactive bladder ("OAB") symptoms of urinary urgency, urge incontinence and frequency of urinary voids.

The Urgent PC Neuromodulation System is a minimally invasive, office-based, nonsurgical system designed to deliver retrograde access to the sacral plexus through percutaneous electrical stimulation of the posterior tibial nerve. The Urgent PC system combines a pulse generator and a lead set to transfer electrical current from the pulse generator to the posterior tibial nerve, and includes a single use feature to prevent reuse of the lead set. By preventing reuse of lead sets, the Urgent PC System eliminates the health risks otherwise associated with re-using the same electrodes.

"We are very pleased that the United States Patent Office has awarded this patent on the unique features of our stimulation systems and methods," said David Kaysen, President and CEO. "This newly issued patent underscores our commitment to protect the unique features of the Urgent PC system. The system's ease of use and treatment effectiveness, coupled with a minimally invasive procedure and single-use features, are seen as key positives by our many clinical users as well as patients treated for the symptoms of OAB."

About the Urgent PC Neuromodulation System

The Urgent PC neuromodulation system is a proprietary, minimally invasive nerve stimulation device designed for office-based treatment of urge incontinence, urinary urgency and urinary frequency, symptoms often associated with overactive bladder. Application of neuromodulation therapy targets specific nerve tissue and disrupts the signals that lead to these symptoms.

Uroplasty sells the Urgent PC system in the United States, Canada, and countries recognizing the CE mark. Outside of the United States, Urgent PC is also indicated for the treatment of fecal incontinence.
