Title: DISTRIBUTED PRESSURE FENESTRATED URETHRAL COMPRESSION APPARATUS FOR TREATMENT OF MALE URINARY SPHINCTER DEFICIENCY WITH PRESERVATION OF BLOOD FLOW
Abstract:
An urethral compression apparatus is defined by a semi-cylindrical fenestrated dorsal hood that is worn dorsally on the penis and which is interconnected with a strap to a urethral compressor that is oriented ventrally to apply compressive pressure on the urethra to prevent urine leakage. The dorsal hood and the urethral compressor apply distributed pressure that prevents compromised venous and arterial circulation but eliminate incontinence. The device may be worn continually and is easily removed to allow voiding, then reattached. The fenestration in the dorsal hood (or plural fenestrations as the case may be) allows distribution of pressure to avoid venous and arterial blood flow interruption. The dorsal hood partially encircles the penile shaft and the urethral compressor is oriented ventrally and applies the desired pressure to the soft ventral tissues and the urethra. A strap applies tension between the dorsal hood and the urethral compressor, and thus the necessary compression between these two components.
