European Market Report for Female Urinary Incontinence Slings 2016 - Research and Markets

DUBLIN--()--Research and Markets has announced the addition of the "European Market Report for Female Urinary Incontinence Slings 2016 - MedCore" report to their offering.

Urinary incontinence slings can be made of synthetic mesh, non-synthetic mesh or autologous tissue harvested from the patient to create a sling or hammock under the patients urethra or bladder neck (the area of thickened muscle where the bladder connects to the urethra). Vaginal slings always require a surgical procedure for installation; however, the degree of invasiveness of the procedure varies depending on the type of sling.

Procedure options include the installation of tension-free vaginal tape surgery (TVT) for mid-urethral sling procedures, transobturator tape slings (TOT) for the transobturator approach and single-incision, also known as mini-slings, for SUI.

The mid-urethral sling procedure is the most common surgery for incontinence and is a minimally-invasive, outpatient procedure. Although the mid-urethral procedure has been successful for many women, many national health authorities such as the FDA have issued warnings about the complications and side-effects which have been documented with surgical mesh procedures.

There are four main categories recognized for urinary incontinence, with 50% of cases diagnosed as stress urinary incontinence (SUI). Surgical treatment using a urinary incontinence sling is one of the most recommended options to help SUI patients become incontinence-free.
