Suburethral synthetic sling insertion for stress urinary incontinence in men (IPG256)
Suburethral synthetic sling insertion for stress urinary incontinence in men
The National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE) issued full guidance to the NHS in England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland on suburethral synthetic sling insertion for stress urinary incontinence in men in March 2008.
This guidance has been withdrawn as the use of this procedure is now covered in the clinical guideline on the management of lower urinary tract symptoms in men, published in May 2010, www.nice.org.uk/cg97. NICE has no plans to carry out further assessment of this procedure under the Interventional Procedures Programme.
Following surgery to remove the prostate, many men develop leakage of urine during movements such as coughing, sneezing or laughing, which is known as stress incontinence. A sling can be inserted in the pelvic region to support or compress the urethra (the tube that carries urine from the bladder and through the penis) to prevent urine leakage.
