Study to support Urgent(R) PC clinical success and expanded reimbursement coverage

MINNEAPOLIS, Jan. 26 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Uroplasty, Inc. (Amex: UPI) announced today the completion of patient enrollment in the randomized, controlled multicenter clinical study of its Urgent PC neuromodulation system for the treatment of overactive bladder (OAB) symptoms of urinary urgency, urge incontinence and frequency of urinary voids.

More than 33 million Americans suffer from OAB symptoms, which dramatically impact the quality of their lives. The Urgent PC system is a minimally invasive, office-based, nonsurgical PTNS device that treats these symptoms. The Company believes physicians, pat
