Urinary incontinence treatment – offer

Stress urinary incontinence so far was a taboo problem. It results from weakened muscles at the bottom of vagina and stretched vagina, which lead to altering the angle of inclination of the urethra.

Two types of stress urinary incontinence can be specified:

  • anatomical (excessive bladder and urethra moveability)
  • sphincter-related (weakened urethra sphincter muscle)

Factors, which increase the probability of the ailment, include:

  • pregnancies,
  • natural childbirth,
  • obesity,
  • long coughing,
  • excessive physical stress,

Urinary incontinence can be effectively treated. There are numerous methods of urinary incontinence treatment – physiotherapy, pharmacological and surgical treatment.

Urinary incontinence – therapy with botox (botulinum toxin), which blocks the nerves responsible for bladder contraction and causes a controlled paralysis of the muscles responsible for urine bladder contraction, thus causing the outflow of urine. This method gives the results after about 6 months, the problem with this method might be a sudden and brief stoppage of the urine.

Urinary incontinence laser treatment is a fairly simple, non-invasive procedure, which significantly improves the condition of health of women suffering from urinary incontinence. Its goal is to shrink the vagina and multiply collagen fibres, responsible for the resilience of its walls. The laser beam strengthens the vaginal walls, pelvic fascia and the urethra outlet area. It results in stimulation of the collagen fibres of the vaginal mucosa and tissue shrinkage, which causes a the reduction of the angle of inclination of the urethra and restores its correct function. Usually one procedure suffices, but if it is necessary, it can be repeated after a month. The effect will last for years.

Urinary incontinence surgical treatment is used in case of the autonomous type of stress urinary incontinence (only among women) and is based on restoring the correct, high placement of the connection between the urethra and bladder and its stabilisation. This method is an attractive therapeutic method for many patients due to possibility of relief from a very unpleasant ailment through one action without the necessity, for most of patients, of using a long supportive treatment. Right now the TVT technique (tension free vaginal tape) is used) due to its simplicity, high clinical effectiveness, low percentage of surgery- and post-surgery complications, it is a kind of a breakthrough in the treatment of stress and mixed forms of urinary incontinence among women. At the moment it is one of the most often used methods of urinary incontinence treatment. Its estimated effectiveness after the procedure is 95%, and in five-year observation 85%. Other obvious benefits of TVT implantation are short procedure time (about 30 minutes) and possibility of performing it under local anaesthesia.
