A newly designed endoscopic injection needle that can be used in conjunction with a system used to inject Macroplastique has been developed by US company Uroplasty.

Uroplasty's new low-profile MRN-420 needle is designed to be compatible with most adult cystoscopes, instruments used to visually examine the bladder, and to perform urologic procedures.

Macroplastique is a soft-tissue urethral bulking agent used to treat adult female stress urinary incontinence primarily due to intrinsic sphincter deficiency.

The needle is designed in a way that it can improve procedure ease and allow surgeons to use their cystoscope of choice.

The needle is easy to handle and its smaller needle tip helps to control the precise flow and amount of product injected.
