What is incontinence

Stress incontinence is the loss of urine when laughing, coughing, sneezing, or doing strenuous activities. It is usually caused by a weak or damaged urinary sphincter muscle. In men, it is a condition often seen after prostate surgery.

Male Sling A mesh sling is placed during a surgical procedure via three small incisions and held in place by friction between the sling and the body’s own tissues. The sling supports the urethra and moves it into a more natural position to improve the function of the urinary sphincter muscle.

Artificial Sphincter The artificial urinary sphincter is a proven option for severe incontinence and has a good success rate. It requires a slightly more complicated surgical procedure than the male sling and follow-up studies have shown that there is a small chance (15%) that it could malfunction at 7 years. Repair/replacement may necessitate another operation.
