There are different solutions for incontinence that are more advanced than oral medications or the usual pelvic floor exercises.1,5 Talking to a urologist about options like those below could help you reclaim your quality of life.1–3

An Advanced Male Sling System

An invisible, internal sling system

The sling, made of synthetic mesh, is placed entirely inside the body, making it undetectable to others. Most patients are continent immediately following the procedure.7 At their urologist’s discretion, most patients can resume normal daily activities 6 weeks later.8




Benefits of an advanced male sling:

  • Minimally invasive procedure10
  • The patient doesn’t need to do anything to operate the device; it operates automatically8
  • The advanced male sling system can help restore quality of life3

Side effects include, but are not limited to:11

  • Pain and inflammation
  • Bleeding and irritation at wound site
  • Urethral or tissue damage
  • Urinary retention

 




Bill worked with a urologist to decide on a male sling as his advanced and long term solution.

“The day of my surgery I was actually excited. I was expecting to walk out of there and not have to wear pads and [gain] some sense of normalcy with my life. And that’s exactly what happened.”*

Artificial Sphincter

A 3-part urinary control system12

  • The pump is implanted in the scrotum
  • The inflatable cuff fits around the urethra
  • A balloon reservoir is implanted in the abdomen


How it works12

The cuff fits around the urethra, inflates and keeps it closed, thereby keeping urine in the bladder. To begin urinating, the pump in the scrotum is squeezed several times. Doing so deflates the cuff, opens the urethra and allows urine to exit the body.

 

Benefits of an artificial sphincter

  • Designed to treat male incontinence due to a weakened sphincter muscle or the sphincter’s inability to close and prevent urine leakage following prostate surgery13
  • In a study of 68 patients with average patient follow up of 7.2 years, 80% of men used 0–1 pads per day4
  • This system effectively gives most men the ability to achieve continence14
  • An artificial sphincter can help restore quality of life4


Side effects include, but are not limited to:13

  • Pain/discomfort and inflammation
  • Bleeding and irritation at the wound site
  • Urethra and/or surrounding tissue damage
  • Healing delays 
  • Recurrent urine leakage 

 

 

 

Mr. Richard Hocart worked with a urologist to decide on a urinary sphincter as his advanced long term solution*

“My wife and I were laughing and crying after I successfully activated the sphincter for the first time and we realised that it really worked and that I was going to be dry again. I felt a real physical weight lift from my shoulders. The feeling of relief was so intense I actually had to look to see what was happening.”*
