Description of Medical Service

Implantation of male sling for male stress urinary incontinence

Description of Medical Condition

Stress urinary incontinence is the involuntary loss of urine during physical activity, such as coughing, sneezing, laughing, walking or exercise. In stress incontinence, the sphincter muscle and/or the pelvic diaphragm, which support the bladder and urethra, are weakened or non-functioning. Suboptimal function may be caused by injury to the urethral area, surgery to the prostate or pelvic area, etc. The sphincter is not able to prevent urine from flowing when intra-abdominal pressure is raised (such as when the patient coughs, laughs, or lifts heavy objects). Mild incontinence is the leakage of <100ml urine per day. Moderate incontinence is the leakage of 100 > 500ml of urine per day.
