What Is Male Urinary Incontinence?
The loss of bladder control is an embarrassing and common problem for men. The severity of the condition ranges from occasional leaking urine associated with sneezing or coughing to having a strong and sudden urge to urinate and losing control. The condition tends to affect older males who suffer from health conditions such as diabetes mellitus or prostate problems.
Causes of Male Urinary Incontinence
Male urinary incontinence is often caused by a damaged sphincter, a circular muscle inside the body that controls the flow of urine from the bladder. The condition may occur as a result of prostate cancer surgery that is necessary to save a man’s life. After this sphincter is damaged, a man is unable to completely close off or squeeze the urethra where urine flows from the bladder, leading to leakage, especially when they exercise or strain.
Symptoms of Male Urinary Incontinence
Many individuals experience minor and occasional leaks of urine while others wet their clothes frequently. The types of urinary incontinence include the following:
- Stress caused by lifting or laughing due to pressure on the bladder
- Urge to urinate due to health conditions such as diabetes mellitus
- Overflow caused by the bladder not emptying completely, resulting in frequent dribbling
- Functional caused by mental or physical impairment such as dementia or arthritis
- Mixed as described by a combination of urinary incontinence problems
Male Urinary Incontinence Treatment Via Stem Cell Therapy
Stromal vascular fraction with adipose-derived adult mesenchymal stem cells at Scottsdale Stem Cell Treatment Center in Scottsdale, Arizona is designed to treat post-prostatectomy incontinence. The stromal vascular fraction or SVF along with a small amount of condensed fat matrix are injected with a telescope directly into a man’s deficient sphincter after they are injected with a local anesthetic under the direction of a surgeon at Scottsdale Stem Cell Treatment Center.
At Nagoya University in Japan, stromal vascular fraction has been used successfully on patients experiencing male incontinence in trial or experimental procedures. Our surgeons at Scottsdale Stem Cell Center believe it is possible to regenerate the external sphincter to some extent to improve bladder control and decrease male urinary incontinence with this new experimental method. Scottsdale Stem Cell Treatment Center is able to provide the same technology as Nagoya University with our investigational protocol on male patients suffering from urinary incontinence.
