Adjustable system for male urinary incontinence
The system is suitable for all degrees of urinary incontinence, and can also be used after radiotherapy.
The suburethral substitute sphincter cushion:
- is located in the middle of the mesh fixation tape and filled via the port-catheter connection
- Post-surgical, patient-specific adjustment requires no surgical intervention and can be made at any time to counteract either continuing incontinence or urinary retention
- ensures a gentle, evenly-distributed pressure on the bulbospongiosus muscle. There is no point of maximum compression on the urethra and the risk of urethral erosion is significantly reduced
The integrated mesh arms are drawn back around to the middle of the implant to secure the system in place. This eliminates the need for additional fasteners or screws, and ensures a symmetrical 4-point fixation.
Effective treatment for mild to severe stress urinary incontinence
…and the patient friendliness.
Patients can urinate freely without having to activate a mechanical component. This means the ATOMS System is also suitable for patients suffering from dementia, or whose cognitive skills may be expected to regress over time. Patients with joint pain (e.g. gout) also benefit from not having to operate the system manually.
The ATOMS System is made up entirely of components that function hydraulically. Patients are therefore spared the difficulties caused by defects which may occur in mechanical components months or years after the implantation.
