Valencia Technologies Announces First Commercial Implantation of eCoin® Leadless Tibial Neurostimulator for the Treatment of Urge Urinary Incontinence

Valencia Technologies Corporation, a privately held company, today announced that it has completed the world’s first commercial implantation of eCoin® in Sarasota, FL.

The surgery was performed by Dr. Kristie Greene, a leader in the female pelvic medicine space. eCoin® received premarket approval (PMA) from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in March 2022, making it the first and only FDA approved implantable tibial neurostimulator indicated for the treatment of urge urinary incontinence (UUI).

“The first successful commercial implantation of eCoin marks the culmination of years of hard work by our team, representing a significant milestone for Valencia and the field of UUI treatment,” said Stacy Chambliss, Chief Executive Officer. She added, “We believe more patients will be served with greater satisfaction using our eCoin solution compared to the existing treatment options for UUI.”

Valencia Technologies Chief Commercial Officer, Jerry Schloffman, added, “As pioneers in implantable tibial neuromodulation, we embrace the responsibility that comes with being first. Working with innovators like Dr. Greene, we are committed to a patient-centric experience focused on quality and outcomes.”

“When I learned about eCoin, I was excited to have an additional option particularly for those who were happy with percutaneous tibial nerve modulation, and for individuals who wanted to avoid general anesthesia with sacral neuromodulation surgery or patients not desiring intradetrusor Botox. Immediately, it seemed a natural fit for my practice,” stated Dr Kristie Greene, a urogynecologist in Sarasota, Florida who performed the first post-FDA approval eCoin® implant procedures. “My patients were equally excited when they learned about eCoin. Furthermore, it became a more attractive option once they learned that it was done with local anesthesia only.”

Dr. Sachita Shah, Sr. Director, Global Health, Butterfly Network, "Butterfly is proud to continue improving maternal health equity through Phase Two of the largest-scale handheld ultrasound distribution and training ever conducted in Sub-Saharan Africa. South Africa is an emerging market that continues to have disproportionately high rates of maternal mortality and stillbirth. Patients need easier access to antenatal imaging, and clinicians need better capabilities for screening high-risk conditions that lead to disproportionately worse pregnancy outcomes in rural areas in the public sector. Together with CHAI and GUSI, we can tackle this by making ultrasound much more accessible, so high-risk conditions can be identified earlier in care, which is known to improve outcomes.”

Dr. Michael Newman, Indaptus’ Founder, Chief Scientific Officer, and lead author, commented, “The new data are consistent with our preclinical animal tumor model studies and provide evidence for our hypothesis that patented Decoy bacteria can activate a wide range of innate and adaptive human immune cells involved in fighting tumors.  This aligns with what we’ve observed in our ongoing Phase 1 clinical trial of Decoy20 – broad immune activation, as evidenced by transiently increased levels of many key cytokines and chemokines following single dose administration. These findings bolster our confidence in Decoy20's potential as a multifaceted immunotherapy.”
