Uroplasty Announces Enrollment of First Patients in the CONFIDeNT Clinical Study for Treatment of Fecal Incontinence with Urgent® PC
Date:2/15/2012

MINNEAPOLIS, Feb. 15, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Uroplasty, Inc. (NASDAQ: UPI), a medical device company that develops, manufactures and markets innovative proprietary products to treat voiding dysfunctions, today announced the first enrollment of patients in the CONFIDeNT clinical study in the United Kingdom.

This large multi-center, placebo-controlled study will enroll over 200 patients in up to 20 centers across the UK. Using Uroplasty's minimally-invasive Urgent® PC Neuromodulation System, the study will compare percutaneous tibial nerve stimulation (PTNS) treatments to a sham device for patients suffering from fecal incontinence. Outside of the U.S., Urgent PC has a CE Mark for treating fecal incontinence. This is one of several studies currently being conducted throughout Europe to demonstrate the effectiveness of Urgent PC for treating this debilitating and often under-treated, under-reported condition.

"This new physician-initiated study in the UK is indicative of the interest in using Urgent PC to treat fecal incontinence," said David B. Kaysen, President and CEO of Uroplasty, Inc. "The interest in PTNS treatments from internationally known researchers emphasizes the on-going need for effective therapies to treat this very difficult and challenging condition. For many patients, effective treatment for this oftentimes socially isolating condition may well transform their lives."

The Chief Investigator of the CONFIDeNT study in the UK is Prof. C.H. Knowles, BChir, PhD, FRCS (Gen Surg), Professor of Surgical Research and Hon. Consultant, Colorectal Surgeon, Academic Surgical Unit, Centre for Digestive Diseases, Blizard Institute, Barts and the London School of Medicine and Dentistry, Queen Mary University, London. Prof. Knowles stated, "The CONFIDeNT study is a major effort to fully understand how PTNS using Urgent PC, a new and unique technology, can be use
