New Clinical Study Shows Geneveve Treatment Stops Bladder Leaks
Stress urinary incontinence, a type of bladder leakage, is a medical condition affecting more than 25 million women worldwide. Yet, because many women are embarrassed to talk about it – coupled with the fact that the medical community was male dominated until relatively recently – this problem was largely ignored. And when it was addressed, dangerous and invasive surgery was the only option.
The good news is that new treatments for bladder leakage from stress urinary incontinence are finally available, very safe, and do NOT require painful surgery.
Viveve Medical, Inc. is a women’s health company dedicated to advancing medical solutions to improve women’s well-being and quality of life. Viveve has patented the GENEVEVE™ treatment, which uses clinically-proven cryogen-cooled, monopolar radiofrequency (CMRF) technology to stimulate the production of collagen in areas of the vagina and pelvic floor. By “rejuvenating” the tissues in these areas, both vaginal looseness and frustrating bladder leaks can be reduced or eliminated.
Doctors’ 12 Month Geneveve Bladder Leak Treatment Study
In January Viveve released the results of a very positive 12-month pilot study regarding the effects of Geneveve Treatment on bladder leaks. Additionally, they released plans for two additional clinical studies to be conducted in Canada and the U.S. The pilot study was conducted by Bruce Allan, PhD, MD, FRCS(C)
In the 12 month pilot study, patients who underwent treatment with Viveve’s CMRF technology were followed for 12 months. Each women in the study also was evaluated for the safety of the treatment and the clinical results at four, six, nine and twelve months after receiving the vaginal rejuvenation treatment.
Two “scoring” questionnaires were given to the patients, and were used to evaluate the results:
- The International Consultation on Incontinence Questionnaire-Urinary Incontinence Form;
- The “UDI-6” Urogenital Distress Inventory Form) outcome questionnaires.
No device-related safety issues, complications or side effects were reported in any of the patients who received Geneveve Treatment for bladder leaks.
The majority of women in the clinical study also reported sustained reduction of bladder leak symptoms at 12 months.
The doctors who conducted the study explained that the combined cooling and deep tissue capability of CMRF effectively targeted the connective tissue that supports the structure of both the vagina and the urinary system.
Doctor Allan, leader of the clinical study stated:
“In the pilot study, we found that SUI [stress urinary incontinence, i.e. bladder leak] symptoms were significantly improved … with the potential to represent a major advance in the non-invasive treatment of SUI.”
