    Axonics® Launches ARTISTRY Study to Collect and Analyze Real-World Data of Patients Implanted with the Axonics r-SNM System

    Axonics Modulation Technologies, Inc. (NASDAQ: AXNX), a medical technology company that has developed and is commercializing novel implantable sacral neuromodulation (SNM) devices for the treatment of urinary and bowel dysfunction, has launched a new post-market clinical registry study to collect and analyze real-world data of patients treated with the Axonics r-SNM® System. 

    The Axonics Sacral Neuromodulation System Registry (ARTISTRY), a prospective, multicenter registry, anticipates enrolling up to 300 patients across 30 centers in the United States and Canada. Patients with symptoms of urinary urgency incontinence, urinary urgency frequency, non-obstructive urinary retention and fecal incontinence will be included in the study. ARTISTRY will collect real-world data on technical aspects of the procedure, effectiveness, safety, and patient experience with the Axonics System. Patients will be followed for one year, with clinical data documented and assessed at various time points over the course of the study.

    Karen Noblett, M.D., FPMRS, chief medical officer of Axonics, said, "Patients with bladder and bowel dysfunction are significantly undertreated and struggle to find long-term relief. Sacral neuromodulation, which historically has been used as a therapy of last resort, is now experiencing a renaissance based on Axonics bringing new and effective technology to the market. As a result, SNM has the potential to meaningfully improve quality of life for millions of patients. This registry will be an important contribution to expanding the body of clinical evidence for Axonics and further demonstrate that there is a long-lived, easy-to-use, highly effective treatment available to those suffering from these debilitating conditions.”
