Post Prostatectomy Incontinence Protocol
Urinary incontinence is a medical condition where control of the bladder is lost. Over three million men are affected by urinary incontinence in the United States. A circular muscle, known as a sphincter, controls the flow of urine out of the bladder and if damaged, as often happens as the unavoidable result of prostate cancer surgery, can lead to incontinence. The inability of the sphincter to close off the urethra leads to leakage of urine especially with straining or exercise. This degrades the health and quality of life for those men suffering it.
Male Incontinence and OC Regenerative Medicine
Stromal Vascular Fraction with adipose derived adult mesenchymal stem cells to treat post prostatectomy incontinence is being studied. The SVF is injected 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. It is thought that some extent of external sphincter regeneration provides this bladder control.
