Stress urinary incontinence is the involuntary loss of urine during physical activity, which may include but is not limited to: coughing, laughing, sneezing, or lifting.
Incontinence occurs when the muscles that support the urethra (the tube that carries urine out of the body) are weakened or damaged. This can happen as a result of childbirth, trauma, hormone changes and many other reasons. Stress Urinary Incontinence can be treated both surgically or nonsurgically.
Stress urinary incontinence can be treated in several ways, depending on the exact nature of the incontinence and its severity. As disease state and anatomy differs for each patient, outcomes may vary.
Our solutions for you:
The AdVance Male Sling is placed in the body and acts as a hammock, repositioning and supporting the urethra to help restore bladder control. Most patients (77%) have long-term success with the AdVance Male Sling and are classified as cured or improved.
Another solution is AMS 800 Urinary Control System, also called an artificial urinary sphincter (AUS), which is considered the gold standard treatment for male stress urinary incontinence. This system provides proven, discreet bladder control. Advantages:
- Mimics a healthy sphincter, allowing you to urinate when desired;
- Offers most men with a weakened sphincter muscle the ability to achieve continence;
- Placed entirely inside the body, it is undetectable to others.
