Application Number1369
Application NameMale stress urinary incontinence, sling operation for, with or without synthetic mesh
Description of Medical ServiceImplantation of male sling for male stress urinary incontinence
Description of Medical ConditionStress 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.
