Many women suffer from Stress Urinary Incontinence (SUI), radically affecting their quality of life due to restraining problems. Their social life is negatively influenced by involuntary leakage during coughing, sneezing, laughing or exercise.

SUI can be treated by endoscopic injection of bulking agents. However, it should be kept in mind that an optimal therapeutic effect with this treatment is yet to be achieved. Existing products use (partially) degradable gels. The effectiveness of this treatment diminishes over time due to shrinkage or degradation of the gels. The advantage however is that the method is minimally invasive and can be performed as an outpatient procedure under local anaesthesia. We offerthe product that shares the properties of being injectable, but does not shrink or degrade, thus remaining effective in the longer term. The material will also show up on X-rays and ultrasound, and can be removed if required.

Solution for Incontinence - Urolastic and Prolastic

Urolastic is an extremely biocompatible rubbery compound that forms in place after injection. The product consists of a dual syringe that is connected to a static mixing tube with a needle. When the dual syringe is compressed, the two components meet and mix in the static mixing tube. The mixed compound is then passed through the needle. This permits small amounts of compound to be placed in the tissue around the urethra. The mixture forms as small flexible rubbery balls, which are encapsulated in scar tissue.
