Urolastic is a soft-tissue urethral bulking agent, used to treat adult female stress urinary incontinence primarily due to intrinsic sphincter deficiency. This permanent, non-resorbable material is injected into the tissues surrounding the urethra, to help improve urethral closure to enhance bladder control.

Urolastic is a safe and modern method for treatment of Stress Urinary Incontinence (SUI).

  • Very woman-friendly
  • Reliable and safe        
  • Outpatient procedure
  • No narcosis
  • No migration of bulking agent
  • No urethral mucosal damage
  • Procedure takes less than 15 minutes

Urolastic, fast and friendly

If the pre-investigation demonstrates that you can be a candidate for this kind of treatment, the doctor will explain the details regarding the procedure. Urolastic is a flexible silicon rubber mass formed from two components. This outpatient procedure usually takes less than 15 minutes and there is no requirement for narcosis. After applying a local anaesthetic solution to the mucosa around the urethra, another local anaesthetic is painlessly injected into the tissue on both sides of the mucosa along the urethra.

Urolastic, procedure

The procedure is simple, minimally invasive and quick. After a short examination of the bladder using a cystoscope and the application of the local anaesthetic, the surgeon will deposit four small amounts of Urolastic around the urethra to improve the closure mechanism.

The situation prior to the procedure: The bladder is not properly closed.

During the procedure four deposits of Urolastic material are placed around the urethra.

The Urolastic material supports the closing mechanism of the bladder and prevents loss of urine.

Urolastic, final check

After treatment, the patient can usually go home immediately. Voiding may be a little difficult during the first period after treatment, due to tissue swelling resulting from the injections.

The physician will give follow-up instructions.

Urolastic, reliable

Urolastic has been proven to be very tissue-friendly. It is non-allergic and does not migrate. It maintains its shape and flexibility and therefore its mechanical effect as a bulking agent. It is radio-opaque and visible under ultrasound. If necessary, it can be removed since there will be no tissue in-growth.

Urolastic, long lasting

The effect of Urolastic is long lasting as it is not degraded by the body and will not shrink. It will adapt to the form of the tissue and remain flexible to external pressure. It will become surrounded by connective tissue (scar tissue) and maintain its position in the longer term.
