Brief Summary:
The Connected Catheter is a fully internal, urethral indwelling urinary prosthesis designed for improved bladder management in males with urinary retention disorders requiring catheterization. It is a sterile, single-extended-use device that resides fully internally to the male lower urinary tract (urethra + bladder neck) for an intended service life of up to 7 days per Catheter

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Chronic Urinary Retention Device: Connected Urinary Catheter Not Applicable

Detailed Description:
Spinal Singularity had developed Connected Catheter System to address several drawbacks of current standard-of-care urinary catheters. The Connected Catheter is fully internal, urethral indwelling urinary prosthesis designed for improved bladder management in males with urinary retention disorders requiring catheterization. Each subject will use the Connected Catheter for up to 35-40 days. This includes five routine follow-up appointments. The follow-up appointments are spaced 7 days apart and at each appointment the catheter will be replaced with a new one. Additionally, weekly follow-up will occur for 14 days following the final appointment after the subject discontinues use of study device and reverts to his original catheter.

Clinical Evaluation of the Connected Catheter - Wireless Urinary Prosthesis for Management of Chronic Urinary Retention
Device: Connected Urinary Catheter
The Connected Catheter is a fully internal, urethral indwelling urinary prosthesis designed for improved bladder management in males with chronic urinary retention disorders requiring catheterization. . The Connected Catheter is a sterile, single-extended-use device that resides fully internally to the male lower urinary tract (urethra + bladder neck) for an intended service life of up to 7 days per Catheter.




Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Improved bladder management without injury to genito-urinary tract [ Time Frame: 35-40 days ]
    Absence of genito-urinary injury/trauma when using Connected Catheter

  2. Successful Connected Catheter Acute Retention (Acute Performance- I) [ Time Frame: Day 0 ( On the day of Connected Catheter Insertion) ]
    Successful retention of Connected Catheter

  3. Successful Bladder Emptying Using Connected Catheter (Acute Performance- II) [ Time Frame: Day 0 ( On the day of Connected Catheter Insertion) ]
    Successful voiding with Connected Catheter as assessed by Post-Residual Volume (PVR) measurement via ultrasound

  4. Successful Connected Catheter Valve Sealing (Acute Performance- III) [ Time Frame: Day 0 ( On the day of Connected Catheter Insertion) ]
    Absence of significant urinary incontinence

Criteria

Inclusion Criteria:

  1. Males age ≥ 18 with clinical diagnosis of significant urinary retention
  2. Must be clinically suitable and capable of safely managing bladder using an intermittent voiding or indwelling strategy

    Must have stable urinary management history: no significant changes in bladder management regimen within past 12 months

    OR:

    Must have urodynamic profile suitable for Connected Catheter (including bladder capacity > 200mL without uninhibited bladder contractions)

  3. Subject's lower urinary tract anatomy must fall within the ranges serviceable by the Connected Catheter, as specified in the Investigational Device Instructions for use (IFU)

Exclusion Criteria:

  1. Active symptomatic urinary tract infection (UTI), as defined in this protocol (subjects may receive the device after UTI has been treated)
  2. Significant risk profile or recent history of urethral stricture (e.g. stricture within past 90 days)
  3. Significant risk profile or recent history of clinically significant (uncontrolled) autonomic dysreflexia (AD)
  4. Significant intermittent urinary incontinence (between catheterizations)
  5. Uninhibited bladder contractions and/or vesico-ureteral reflux that is not reliably controlled with medication or alternate therapy (e.g. Botox injections)
  6. Pre-existing urinary pathologies and/or morphological abnormalities of the lower urinary tract or bladder (assessed during in-depth medical screening, including cystoscopy and urine analysis)

    1. Urinary tract inflammation or neoplasm
    2. Urinary fistula
    3. Bladder diverticulum (outpouching) > 5cm in size
    4. Chronic pyelonephritis (secondary to upper urinary tract infection(s) within past 6 months)
    5. Impaired kidney function or renal failure
    6. Active gross hematuria
    7. Active urethritis
    8. Bladder stones
  7. Dependence on an electro-magnetic medical implant (e.g. cardiac pacemaker or implanted drug pump) or external device
  8. Any unsuitable comorbidities as determined by the investigator or complications related to use of certain medications
  9. Any physical or cognitive impairments that diminish the subject's ability to follow directions or otherwise safely use the Connected Catheter System -
