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.
