The AMS 800 Urinary Control System is an artificial urinary sphincter placed inside your body to treat urinary incontinence. It is most commonly used to treat men who are suffering from Stress Urinary Incontinence.
What is Stress Urinary Incontinence? Stress Urinary Incontinence, sometimes referred to as SUI, is where there is the involuntary leakage of urine when engaging in exercise, physical exertion, coughing or sneezing.
What causes Stress Urinary Incontinence? SUI is often an unfortunate side effect of prostate cancer surgery but can be caused by a weakened sphincter and pelvic muscle which can be caused by old age, obesity and other conditions such as diabetes.
So what are the main benefits to the AMS 800 Urinary Control System? The AMS 800 Urinary Control System has several benefits for the patient, but the four most significant are detailed below.
The AMS 800 Urinary Control System has four significant benefits:
- The AMS 800 helps to restore the quality of life to the patient. As it is an artificial sphincter, it acts as a real sphincter would, preventing urine leakage and allowing a man to engage in his daily routine without worry of leaking.
- The AMS 800 system effectively gives most men the ability to achieve full continence as you can choose when you wish to urinate.
- The AMS 800 was purposely designed to treat male SUI after prostate surgery following the weakening of the sphincter muscle or the sphincters inability to close and prevent urine leakage.
- The AMS 800 is wholly concealed within your body and is therefore very discreet. Nobody needs to know that you have the implant.
