Urolastic basically consists of a two-component polymer. By mixing these two components and bringing them to body temperature, the material hardens within minutes into a solid, but elastic globule.
This material is body-friendly and therefore is not absorbed or degraded.
Urolastic, fast and friendly
If the clinical examination demonstrates that you are a candidate for this kind of treatment, the doctor will explain the details regarding the Urolastic intervention.
The intervention normally takes no more than 30 minutes and is painless. Narcosis is not necessary, local anesthetic is sufficient.
The Urolastic intervention
The Urolastic procedure is simple, minimally invasive and fast. The intervention normally takes no more than 30 minutes and is performed under local anesthesia. Two components are mixed together and harden into a soft flexible sphere after a few minutes. While the mixture is still liquid, it is injected at four positions around the urethra. This will narrow and stabilize the urethra and improve the closure mechanism. Urolastic does not stick to the tissue and can be easily removed in case of overcorrection. After the procedure, a cough test is performed in order to demonstrate sufficient effect has been obtained.
Urolastic, final check
After the treatment you can normally go home after you are able to void voluntarily. For a while, voiding can be a little troublesome due to swollen tissue caused by the injection and the anesthetic.
Your doctor will provide you with all the follow-up details.
