Artificial Urinary Sphincter

Incontinence may become severe after cases of trauma, prostate surgery or other causes. This extreme involuntary loss of urine is often only corrected by implantation of a device which has a fluid balloon around the urethra preventing urine loss called and artificial urinary sphincter. Prior to surgery, additionally testing with cystoscopy or urodynamics may be required.
