The bladder is located in the pelvic area of the body and is a round, bag-like organ which stores urine. While its function might sound simple, the bladder is very complex in design. Because of this, various medical conditions can occur and affect the bladder or surrounding organs. Many conditions and diseases can originate within the bladder, with the most common being an overactive bladder or incontinence.
As there are many different causes for these conditions, they need to be correctly identified before you can begin bladder treatment in London. There are various bladder treatments that could be recommended by a medical professional.
This type of treatment is a surgical option used to treat stress urinary incontinence. During the surgery, a synthetic mesh-like material is placed under the urethra for support. Because of the additional support, stress urinary incontinence is cured in around 80% to 90% of cases. The mesh that is used in this surgery is non-absorbable and so is intended to be a permanent implant.
Urethral Bulking Agents
Urethral bulking agent treatment involves injecting agents into the urethra because this adds volume to the tissue. The additional volume supports the urethra and its closing mechanism, in order to provide better control. This treatment is not as effective as mid-urethral tape, but it is less invasive and so has fewer risks and complications.
