Title (EN) VARIABLE SLING FOR URINARY INCONTINENCE
(FR) BRETELLE RÉGLABLE POUR LE TRAITEMENT DE L'INCONTINENCE URINAIRE
Abstract:
(EN) An apparatus for treating urinary incontinence in a patient includes at least one adjustable lifting device for supporting a patient's urethra to restore urinary control. The adjustable lifting device can post-operatively and non-invasively adjust the level of lift of a patient's urethra, to thereby affect the patient's incontinence. The adjustable lifting device is placed above the pubis bone of the patient. The device includes first and second fixation devices that are adjustable to thereby adjust the length of a sling that cradles and lift's the patient's urethra. The apparatus could also be used to treat anal incontinence.
(FR) Selon l'invention, un appareil servant à traiter l'incontinence urinaire chez un patient comprend au moins un dispositif de levage réglable utilisé comme support de l'urètre d'un patient pour rétablir le contrôle urinaire. Ce dispositif de levage réglable peut, après opération et de manière non invasive, régler le niveau de levage de l'urètre et agir ainsi sur l'incontinence du patient. Le dispositif se place au-dessus de l'os pubien du patient. Il comprend un premier et un second moyen de fixation réglable, qui peuvent régler la longueur d'une bretelle qui se positionne en berceau et lève l'urètre du patient. L'appareil peut également être utilisé pour traiter l'incontinence anale.
