Post prostatectomy incontinence Protocol
In America alone, more than three million men are affected by loss of bladder control, a medical condition known as urinary incontinence. This problem has a great impact on health and quality of life for those who suffer with it. Male urinary incontinence is usually caused by a damaged sphincter, the circular muscle that controls the flow of urine out of the bladder. It often happens as the unavoidable result of prostate cancer surgery. When the sphincter is damaged, the man cannot squeeze or close off the urethra and leakage occurs especially with straining or exercise.
Male Incontinence and Cell Surgical Network
is using Stromal Vascular Fraction with adipose derived adult mesenchymal stem cells to treat post prostatectomy incontinence. The SVF and a small amount of condensed fat matrix is injected with a telescope directly into a deficient sphincter under local anesthetic. Based on experience from Nagoya University, Japan where Stromal Vascular Fraction has been used successfully for male incontinence, we believe that the external sphincter may be regenerated to some extent to provide bladder control. can provide access to the same technology through our investigatory protocol.
