Struggling With Chronic Urinary Retention?

April 10, 2024

New Technology Allows for Relief from Chronic Urinary Retention

Today, we’re shining a light on a transformative solution for chronic urinary retention – Axonics Therapy. At Austin Urology Institute, we’re dedicated to providing cutting-edge treatments for urological conditions, and Axonics Therapy offers hope and relief for individuals grappling with chronic urinary retention.

What is Chronic Urinary Retention? 

Chronic urinary retention is a challenging condition characterized by the inability to empty the bladder completely, leading to discomfort, urinary frequency, and the risk of urinary tract infections. Traditional treatments, such as medications and catheterization, may provide temporary relief but often come with their own set of limitations and side effects.

How Axonics Therapy Alleviates Chronic Urinary Retention

Axonics Therapy is a groundbreaking approach to managing chronic urinary retention by targeting the underlying nerve dysfunction. The Axonics System, approved by the FDA, delivers precise electrical pulses to the sacral nerves, which control bladder function. By modulating these nerves, Axonics Therapy helps restore normal bladder emptying, reducing the symptoms associated with chronic urinary retention and improving quality of life.

But how does it work in practice? During a straightforward, minimally invasive procedure, a small device is implanted near the sacral nerves in the lower back. This device, roughly the size of a USB drive, delivers controlled electrical impulses to the nerves, effectively regulating bladder function. Multiple devices are available, and one is rechargeable, smaller, and designed to provide long-term relief, offering a sustainable solution for managing chronic urinary retention.  The other is a little larger and can last up to 20 years before you must replace the battery.
