What is Urinary Incontinence?

Urinary incontinence: the involuntary leakage of urine

  • Male Incontinence Products

    Bladder leakage? It’s not just a female problem.

    According to the Wall Street Journal 1 in 4 American men over 40 lives with distressing urinary symptoms. More than an inconvenience, UI is a chronic and complex medical condition that is usually the result of some other underlying medical condition, which should be identified and treated.

  • Urine Leakage in Men

    Urinary incontinence affects your quality of life in many different ways.

    Men who experience UI often suffer from reduced self-esteem, physical activity, and independence.

  • Urinary Incontinence in Men

    SUI? Stress urinary incontinence.

    There are several types of UI. However, if you happen to lose urine during everyday movement or activity such as walking, coughing, lifting, exercising, or changing position, you may have Stress Urinary Incontinence (SUI).

  • Bladder Control Device

    If all adults with urinary incontinence lived in one country, it would be the third-most populous country in the world!

Types of Urinary Incontinence

  • Stress Urinary Incontinence (SUI)
  • Urge Urinary Incontinence (UUI)
  • Overflow incontinence
  • Functional incontinence

Stress urinary incontinence, sometimes referred to as passive or low pressure incontinence is common and the typical causes are when the prostate is removed (i.e. a radical prostatectomy), Prostate Cancer is treated with radiation, or transurethral resection of the prostate (TURP) procedure for the treatment of Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia (BPH). With SUI, leaks most often happen when you cough, lift or strain. These actions cause increased pressure on the bladder which results in involuntary leakage.

Urge incontinence is the result of overactive bladder muscles that squeeze so hard the sphincter can’t hold back. With urge incontinence, the urge is so strong, sometimes you just can’t reach the toilet quickly enough. This often results in large leaks and is common and sometimes referred to as high pressure incontinence.

Overflow incontinence is caused by a blockage in the urethra (such as enlarged prostate) and this leads to urine building up over time. With overflow incontinence, a person can often only release a little urine at a time. With this type of incontinence, it is common that the person experiencing incontinence will have no sensation that the bladder is full.

Functional incontinence occurs when there is a non-medical reason for the incontinence. Instead, it occurs when a person frequently cannot reach the toilet because of other factors in their life. The most common reason for this is that the person has difficulty moving from one place to another. This could be because of poor vision, hearing, or speech, preventing an individual from getting to the toilet themselves or informing a caregiver of their need.

Common Causes of Urinary Incontinence

  • Prostate Cancer
  • Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia (BPH)
  • Prostatitis

Men with prostate cancer may experience incontinence as a side effect of their treatment (usually surgery, radiation or both). Surgery can damage the urinary sphincter or bladder wall, while radiation may cause bladder irritation.

Prostate enlargement is common in men over the age of 40. As it gets bigger, the prostate can block the flow of urine through the urethra, resulting in frequent urination, a slow stream of urine and sometimes urge or overflow incontinence. More than half of men in their 60s and up to 90% of men over 70 have urinary symptoms linked to BPH.

This inflammation of the prostate gland can cause urinary symptoms including painful and frequent urination.

Treatment Options for Urinary Incontinence

  • Diapers + Pads
  • Penile Clamps
  • Condom catheter
  • Contino®
  • Surgery

Adult diapers for male incontinence are made in various styles, including those resembling traditional child diapers (attached with side tabs), underpants (protective underwear, pull ups or pull ons), and pads resembling sanitary napkins (known as incontinence pads or bladder control pads).

A penile clamp is a device that is placed halfway down the shaft and when in place and closed, it compresses the urethra so that urine cannot escape.

A condom catheter is a urine storage device that can be used to treat short-term incontinence in men. It consists of a flexible sheath that fits over the penis just like a condom. The condom catheter is rolled onto the penis and attached to it using double-sided adhesive, a jockey-type strap or a foam strap. The catheter is connected to a tube that drains the urine into a drainage bag.

Contino® is a non-surgical, self-administered medical device that is inserted into the urethra to provide bladder leakage control. Contino® blocks the flow of urine and restricts it from exiting the body until you are ready to release it.

In the male sling procedure, synthetic mesh-like tape is placed around the urethral bulb, compressing and moving the urethra into a new position.

Why Contino® vs the other incontinence products?
