Sling technology for stress incontinence (urine leakage) treatment

d290_84For some women, the symptoms of stress incontinence or overactive bladder don’t respond to conservative treatment.

When urinary incontinence disturbs your life, urinary incontinence surgery with sling technologies may be an option.

Urethral sling surgeries to treat urinary incontinence involve placing a sling around the urethra to lift it back into a normal position and to exert pressure on the urethra to aid urine retention. The sling is attached to the abdominal wall.

The sling is made of synthetic material such as plastic that is compatible with body tissues.

By inserting a special bond (sling) the bladder is supported and the urethra is in it’s right anatomic position.

The recovery period under monitoring is short – not more than 2-3 days.
