TOPAS AMS Pelvic Floor Repair System
A mesh sling permanently implanted to increase pelvic floor support
- Fecal Incontinence Incidence From Baseline (Pre-treatment) Through 24 Months Post-treatment [ Time Frame: Baseline (pre-treatment), 6 Week, 3 Month, 6 Month, 12 Month and 24 Month post-treatment ]Includes solid and liquid stools, as measured by the mean rate obtained using a subject-reported bowel diary. The 3 month post-treatment visit was the primary endpoint time period.
- Incidence Rate of Complications During the 24 Month Post-Treatment Follow-up Period [ Time Frame: Through 24 month post-treatment ]Complications are defined as all adverse events reported during the 24 month follow-up period including serious/non-serious events and events related/not related to the device and/or procedure. Incidence rate is calculated as: (total number of adverse events reported in the 24 month follow-up period) / (total number of subjects implanted = 29)
- Fecal Incontinence Symptoms as Measured by the Wexner Score [ Time Frame: Baseline (pre-treatment), 6 Week, 3 Month, 6 Month, 12 Month and 24 Month post-treatment ]The Wexner Score (also known as the Cleveland Clinic Florida Incontinence Score) is a subject-completed questionnaire that asks about the frequency of incontinence to gas, liquid, solid, of the need to wear pads, and of lifestyle changes (scored on a frequency scale from 0 (=absent) to 4 (daily). An overall Wexner Score is computed from these five components and a score of 0 means perfect control and 20 means complete incontinence.
- Fecal Incontinence Symptoms as Measured by Symptom Severity Scale in Fecal Incontinence [ Time Frame: Baseline (pre-treatment), 6 Week, 3 Month, 6 Month, 12 Month and 24 Month post-treatment ]The Symptom Severity Scale in Fecal Incontinence is a subject-completed questionnaire that asks about the symptoms of fecal incontinence in the following areas: frequency, stool composition, stool amount, and degree of urgency. The total score is measured on a 0 (best) to 13 (worst) scale. Scores of 1-6, 7-10, and 11-13 were categorized as mild, moderate, and severe fecal incontinence, respectively.
- Quality of Life Assessment as Measured by Fecal Incontinence Quality of Life [ Time Frame: Baseline (pre-treatment), 3 Month, 6 Month, 12 Month and 24 Month post-treatment ]The Fecal Incontinence Quality of Life Assessment is a subject-completed questionnaire. It is measured in each of four areas of depression (7 items), lifestyle (10 items), coping (9 items), and embarrassment (3 items). Area scores are measured on a 1 (worse) to 4 (best) scale and are each the average of their component individual item scores measured on the same scale.
- Pain Intensity as Measured by the Pain Intensity Scale [ Time Frame: Baseline (pre-treatment), 6 Week post-treatment ]The Pain Intensity Scale is a subject completed questionnaire. Scores are measured on 0 (no pain) to 10 (worst possible pain) scale.
- Intra- and Peri-Surgical Parameters: Length of Procedure [ Time Frame: Duration of the device implant procedure ]
- Intra- and Peri-Surgical Parameters: Length of Hospital Stay [ Time Frame: Length of the hospital stay for the device implant procedure ]
- Intra- and Peri-Surgical Parameters: Estimated Blood Loss During Implant Procedure [ Time Frame: Duration of the device implant procedure (an average of 23 minutes) ]
- Anal Manometry: Maximum Resting Pressure [ Time Frame: Baseline (pre-treatment), 6 Month post-treatment ]
- Anal Manometry: Maximum Squeeze Pressure [ Time Frame: Baseline (pre-treatment), 6 Month post-treatment ]
- Anal Manometry: Rectal First Sensation [ Time Frame: Baseline (pre-treatment), 6 Month post-treatment ]
- Anal Manometry: Maximum Tolerable Volume [ Time Frame: Baseline (pre-treatment), 6 Month post-treatment ]
- Pudendal Nerve Terminal Motor Latency [ Time Frame: Baseline (pre-treatment), 6 Month post-treatment ]Pudendal Nerve Terminal Motor Latency is a measure of the time it takes for stimulation of the pudendal nerve to elicit contraction of the pelvic floor muscles and anal sphincter. It is a surrogate marker of pudendal nerve injuries and a means of ascertaining whether anal sphincter weakness is attributable to pudendal nerve injury, sphincter defect, or both.
