United Kingdom's National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence Issues Guidance on Percutaneous Tibial Nerve Stimulation for Faecal Incontinence
Date:5/31/2011

MINNEAPOLIS, May 31, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Uroplasty, Inc. (NASDAQ: UPI), announced today that the United Kingdom's National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE) issued guidance on percutaneous tibial nerve stimulation (PTNS) for the treatment of faecal incontinence.  In October 2010, NICE issued similar guidance on PTNS treatment for overactive bladder.

"This NICE guidance should encourage physicians in the UK and Europe to use our Urgent® PC Neuromodulation System for PTNS treatments for this often difficult-to-treat affliction.  This guidance affirms the evidence that PTNS is efficacious in reducing the symptoms of faecal incontinence without major safety concerns," said David Kaysen, President and CEO of Uroplasty.

In the UK, NICE makes recommendations to the National Health Service on new and existing medicines, treatments and procedures with the goal of improving health and treating and preventing poor health.  A copy of the NICE guidance may be found at www.nice.org.uk.

About Uroplasty, Inc. Uroplasty, Inc., headquartered in Minnetonka, Minnesota, with wholly-owned subsidiaries in The Netherlands and the United Kingdom, is a medical device company that develops, manufactures and markets innovative proprietary products for the treatment of voiding dysfunctions.  Our focus is the continued commercialization of our Urgent PC Neuromodulation System, which we believe is the only FDA-cleared minimally invasive, office-based neuromodulation therapy for the treatment of overactive bladder and the associated symptoms of urinary urgency, urinary frequency and urge incontinence.

We also offer Macroplastique Implants®, an injectable urethral bulking agent for the treatment of adult female stress urinary incontinence primarily due to intrinsic sphincter deficiency. For more inf
