The AdVance Male Sling is placed in the body and acts as a hammock, repositioning and supporting the urethra to help restore bladder control. Most patients (77%) have long-term success with the AdVance Male Sling and are classified as cured or improved.23
THE ADVANCE SLING IS DESIGNED TO TREAT STRESS URINARY INCONTINENCE (SUI).24
The AdVance Sling is designed to stop leakage by supporting the sphincter muscle. The sling is a strip of soft mesh placed inside the body. The AdVance Male Sling moves the sphincter back to its natural position to help restore bladder control. The AdVance Sling requires no action by the patient to function.
The sling procedure is usually done on an outpatient basis and is performed under anesthesia. Small openings are made to access the urethra and the urinary sphincter. The sling is placed under the urethra and tensioned to reposition the urethra and optimize the sphincter’s function. Most patients are continent immediately following the procedure and can resume normal, non-strenuous activities within a few days.24
As with any medical procedure, complications may occur. Some risks include, but are not limited to, device failure, urinary retention, post-operative pain, irritation at the wound site and foreign body response.24 Click here for additional safety information.
