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 procedure is simple, minimally invasive and quick.
Your specialist first measures the length of your urethra, in order to decide on the right location to place the Urolastic globules. The bladder is then filled with water. When you cough, leakage is usually the result.
The doctor then injects the Urolastic material on four spots halfway around the urethra. Coughing again, after a few minutes, should prove no more leakage. You are immediately dry.
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.
