Painless and proven safe treatment for incontinence.
Although incontinence has been a medical problem known since 1500 BC, for the best part of human history, it has been a taboo. In Western culture, the problem was vocalised in the 80s of the last century, with disposable diapers for adults being stated as the main resource for improving comfort. Incontinence is an uncontrollable leakage of urine observed in the elderly. Affected by various types are both men and women, with female representatives being higher in percentage. There are over 10 types of incontinence observed in both sexes.
The latest statistical data shows that 1 in every 3 women in active age suffers from some form of incontinence. Especially, if she had vaginal birth. The disease occurs not only in adult menopausal women but also in women over 30 years of age with regular cycle. Stretching and loss of elasticity, in combination with damage to the connective tissue of the pelvic floor are the causes of various stages of incontinence. Apart from the Kegel exercises and surgical interventions, some forms are successfully treated with laser therapy. They are also one of the most common among the ladies, namely:
- Mild to moderate stress-incontinence (SUI). Uncontrollable urine leakage caused by coughing, sneezing, or physical effort (when straining the abdominal muscles).
- Detrusor instability or overactive bladder incontinence. Women have uncontrollable urge to urinate. It appears as a result of damage to the muscle fibers or nerves innervating the detrusor muscle. This muscle is responsible for the micturition or evacuation of urine from the bladder.
- Mixed urinary incontinence (MUI) – a combination of the above two types.
What are the advantages of the laser treatment by the Er:Yag laser by Fotona compared to conservative methods?
One of the firs forms of therapy is the Kegel exercises or electromagnetic stimulation of the pelvic floor muscles. Unfortunately, they both don’t give positive enough results. With the development of medicine, surgical interventions have made their way in treating the above described types of incontinence. Surgical treatment includes two types of interventions – standard vaginal plastic surgery to lift the urethra and the so-called sling surgery (placing special tape or mesh). They are in turn divided into 2 types: TOT (trans-obturator) and TVT (trans-vaginal bands). Studies have shown that the latter are more effective.
Since the beginning of the new century, laser technology has gradually moved in gynecology treatment. Currently, there are several types of laser technology offering treatment for incontinence. All of them are set apart from the used by Prof. Kornovski Medical Centre Er:Yag laser by Fotona by the fact that it doesn’t injure or burn the mucous membrane but creates a controlled rise in temperature in the connective tissue of the vagina. Without heating in depth, which is dangerous for the other organs. This way, with 3 short and painless procedures, mild to moderate stress-incontinence as well as mixed incontinence is healed for a period of 18-24 months. Yes, one maintenance procedure once a year is required, but the risk of side effects such as adhesions or infections when inserting TOT and TVT is entirely avoided. The procedures with the Er:Yag laser by Fotona are proven to be effective, without the need of hospitalization and each procedure lasts no longer than 30 minutes.
