American Medical Systems Inc. Announces Positive Top-Line Results from TRANSFORM Study
Sep 8 14
American Medical Systems Inc. announced positive top-line results from its TRANSFORM study. The results show that over a 12 month period, 69% of women suffering from fecal incontinence who were implanted with the TOPAS System experienced at least a 50% reduction in weekly incontinence episodes and experienced a durable, consistent effect across the study period. The results were presented in Cape Town, South Africa at the International Society of University Colon & Rectal Surgeon (ISUCRS) Congress. The TOPAS System is an innovative, minimally-invasive approach to treating fecal incontinence, also known as accidental bowel leakage, or ABL. It uses a permanent mesh implant that is designed to restore and maintain anatomic support of the pelvic floor muscles. TOPAS is in development for women with ABL who have failed conservative therapy, which includes dietary changes, anti-diarrheal medications or bulking agents and pelvic floor muscle training. This is an investigational device whose efficacy and safety are not yet approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
