REDWOOD CITY, Calif., June 22, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Nevro Corp. (NYSE: NVRO), a global medical device company that is providing innovative, evidence-based solutions for the treatment of chronic pain, today announced that data from the SENZA Painful Diabetic Neuropathy (PDN) Randomized Controlled Trial (RCT) will be presented at the American Diabetes Association (ADA) 81st Scientific Sessions virtual meeting, June 25-29, 2021. Nevro will also showcase the company's HFX™ platform of spinal cord stimulation (SCS) solutions in a virtual booth and will host an investor briefing.
The late breaking poster presentation will describe the 12-month follow-up results and 6-month crossover patient data from the SENZA-PDN RCT. The objective of this study was to compare Nevro's proprietary high-frequency (10 kHz) SCS plus Conventional Medical Management (CMM) to CMM alone in 216 patients at 18 centers in the United States. Previously published 6-month results demonstrated significantly improved and sustained outcomes with 10 kHz SCS and substantial, sustained pain relief and improved health-related quality of life in patients suffering from painful diabetic neuropathy.
"We are excited for Dr. Petersen to share for the first time the significant 12-month results and importantly, 6-month crossover patient data from our landmark SENZA-PDN trial at the ADA Scientific Sessions," stated D. Keith Grossman, Chairman, CEO and President of Nevro. "No traditional, low-frequency SCS treatments have demonstrated such positive results in treating PDN patients, and once FDA-approved, we believe there is a significant opportunity to expand this innovative treatment option to PDN patients who are unable to find relief with currently available pharmacologic options."
Details of the presentation are included below:
Poster #16-LB, Long-Term 10 kHz Spinal Cord Stimulation in Painful Diabetic Neuropathy: A Randomized Controlled Trial Presenting Author: Dr. Erika Petersen Date & Time: Friday, June 25, 2021 at 11:30 am ET (Posters will be available throughout the duration of the meeting)

The World Health Organization estimates 422 million adults with diabetes worldwide and prevalence (8.5%) that has nearly doubled over four decades.1 Diabetes may cause systemic damage with profound impact on health-related quality of life and is potentially life-threatening. Diabetic peripheral neuropathy is a common complication presenting as pain and other dysesthesias, including numbness, burning, or tingling. Approximately 20% of patients with diabetes will develop PDN, a progressive, potentially debilitating chronic neuropathic pain condition.2 In the U.S., it is estimated that there are approximately 140,000 to 200,000 PDN patients each year that become refractory to conventional medical management, representing an annual total addressable market opportunity of approximately $3.5 billion to $5.0 billion.3,4
