Once an accurate diagnosis is made by your urologist, it may be determined that the best way to treat your incontinence is to have a bulbourethral sling implanted, such as the Virtue® Male Sling (Coloplast Corp.).
The sling is made of a polypropylene mesh material, which is implanted underneath the bulbous urethra to elevate and apply a gentle compression to prevent urine leakage.
Typically, Virtue is inserted during an out-patient procedure. Individual recovery time may vary, but the average time is 4-6 weeks. During this time, heavy lifting should be avoided. Your physician will discuss your recovery plan in greater detail.
Virtue is a permanent solution. Once the sling is in place, you can enjoy the active lifestyle you had before, playing sports, dancing and just carrying in the groceries without fear of leaking.
Following the placement of a Virtue male sling, it is important to follow the instructions provided by your physician.
