vesical sphincter prosthesis / urinary incontinence
Artus is the first high-tech and total solution for stress urinary incontinence in both men and women; once implanted by means of a minimally invasive procedure lasting around 30 minutes, it remains invisible and may be easily operated by patients via remote control.
Stress urinary incontinence is a disabling condition that results in uncontrolled urinary leakage during effort such as coughing or sport.
Urine is normally retained by a sphincter that may have become inefficient in women with the condition.
Artus is an artificial urinary sphincter that aims to replace the natural sphincter.
