The male urethral sling is an important treatment for addressing male incontinence from multiple causes and unlike the artificial urinary sphincter, the sling requires no manual dexterity, no significant mechanical parts, and no patient training.
Currently, Coloplast’s Virtue sling (utilizes four arm approach versus two)
and Boston Scientific’s AdVance Male Sling System
are two available options for male urethral slings. The InVance bone anchored sling (a product of former company American Medical Systems) has fallen out of favor due to risk of osteomyelitis.
The Argus slings from the international company Promedon have also been used in the past.
Data presented reflects all three slings as described above.
