It's good to know that new treatment options for incontinence are being explored. Mesh devices have been under fire in recent years due to serious complications that may occur after surgery. A review conducted by the FDA also revealed that mesh devices may not be as effective in providing therapeutic outcomes when used for pelvic organ prolapse (POP) repair as conventional non-surgical options.

This sounds like a promising alternative for surgical slings. I read some postings online, one of them at http://www.bladderslingrecall.us , and was daunted by the potential risks these devices have been reported to cause. Patients who may wish to avoid the use of mesh slings may want to take advantage of other options such as this, with sufficient advice and guidance of their doctors, of course.

In the wake of safety issues surrounding surgical mesh, this does sound like a promising treatment for those with severe stress incontinence. I found out at bladdermeshlawsuit.us/ symptoms-of-failure/ that surgical slings have rather been a source of more pain and suffering than relief. It would really be a big advantage for women to have another surgical option such as this.
