Female Stress Urinary Incontinence Treatment Devices: Bias Towards Non-Surgical Solutions on the Rise

Female Stress Urinary Incontinence Treatment Devices

Urinary stress incontinence is a condition occurring occasionally among geriatric and post-menopausal women, where urine leakages can occur from loss of b even from minor activities such as sneezing and coughing, or physical exercise. Also, stress urinary incontinence is also common among new mothers. The condition can be a result of either weakness in pelvic or sphincter muscles during pregnancy, menstruation, or pelvic surgery. Alternatively, female stress urinary incontinence can occur due to poor lifestyle and diet with excessive smoking and obesity.

Surgical Solutions for Stress Urinary Incontinence

Surgery is used often as a last resort, when other treatment options fail to provide adequate relief. Modern surgical solutions are minimally invasive and are often conducted in outpatient settings. While a number of surgeries involve injections and sutures to support the urethra. However, artificial sphincter device implantation surgeries are finding growing popularity among women. The process involves the implantation of a fluid filled cuff around the urethra, which works as a valve against involuntary leaks.

Non-Invasive Devices Gain Popularity

Urethral inserts and vaginal pessaries are some of the more popular female stress urinary incontinence treatment device options. Urethral inserts are devices similar to tampons, which are inserted into the urethra as a plug to minimize the risks of leakage. These devices are aimed towards specific activities, such as physical exercise and sports and can be used throughout the day.

On the other hand, vaginal pessaries are a more specialized device type which has to be set up by a healthcare professional near the base of the bladder. It is particularly popular among patients with prolapsed bladders. It is a popular choice for women who wish to avoid surgery. The disadvantage of pessaries is regular requirement for removal and cleaning procedures to minimize the risk of infections.

Limitations of Stress Urinary Incontinence Devices

External urethral devices operate with mild suction or with adhesive materials. However, higher risk of failure limit applications to only those women who have good use of their hands. On the other hand, internal urethral devices make use of flanges and external retainers which make positioning more secure. However, even these devices cannot be used for long periods, are linked with hematuria and infection, and are cost-prohibitive for many users.

Internal vaginal devices are largely designed to support the bladder neck including tampons and contraceptive diaphragms. Intravaginal rings and hollow tampons have displayed success in minimizing stress urinary incontinence. However, these devices have to be used along with pads, as they are not completely effective in preventing leaks.

Intravaginal and intraurethral devices have faced challenges owing to recommendations by healthcare against their use for routine management of stress incontinence owing to potential health risks over long-term usage.

Female Stress Urinary Incontinence Treatment Devices – Future Prospects

According to a recent study published by Future Market Insights, the global market for female stress urinary incontinence treatment devices is expected to reflect promising prospects in the coming decade with a 7% CAGR through 2029.

Research on ailments such as spinal cord injuries, enlarged prostate, Parkinson’s disease, and multiple sclerosis and their association to stress urinary incontinence have been providing impetus to the adoption of associated treatment devices. Growing competition in the industry is expected to contributed to price reduction strategies, despite improvements being made to material and product design. On the other hand, lack of awareness about female stress incontinence devices, particularly in rural areas and developing countries is key factor which has limited expansion of the industry so far. Investments into promotional activities will remain key in the years to come.
