Deflux is a minimally invasive, outpatient treatment that has been proven safe and effective in children with vesicoureteral reflux (VUR). VUR is a serious pediatric urinary condition in which urine refluxes from the bladder through one or both ureters toward the kidneys, due to an abnormality at the junction of the ureter and the bladder. Deflux is an injectable gel bulking agent made from two tissue-friendly polysaccharides; Non-Animal Stabilized Hyaluronic Acid (NASHA®) and dextranomer (Dx) microspheres. The product is administered via injection around the ureteral opening to prevent urine reflux. Deflux is indicated in the United States for children with VUR grades II-IV, and is indicated outside of the United States for all grades of VUR. It is the recommended first-line treatment for VUR.1 Separate study results show Deflux is an efficacious long-term (15 – 25 years) treatment option for VUR grade IV2 with up to 93% success rates after a one time injection and no post-injection febrile UTIs (19 month results).3 Deflux is the only minimally invasive VUR treatment approved globally across Australia, Canada, Europe, Latin America, Japan, New Zealand and the United States.

Solesta is a minimally invasive, outpatient treatment for bowel incontinence. Bowel (or fecal) incontinence affects millions of individuals of all ages worldwide. Solesta is an injectable gel made from two polysaccharides; Non-Animal Stabilized Hyaluronic Acid (NASHA®) and dextranomer (Dx) microspheres. The Solesta implant is administered via injection in an outpatient setting without the need for anesthesia.4 Healthcare providers and patients can be confident in the demonstrated durability, safety, and efficacy of Solesta through 36 months. The product has been proven to reduce the number of fecal incontinence episodes, with greater than 80% of patients not requiring retreatment, and enable clinically and statistically significant improvements in quality of life through this time period.5 For more information, visit http://www.mysolesta.com
