A 3 Years Naturalistic Cohort Survey of Altis Single Incision Sling System For Female Stress Urinary Incontinence

2019-10-10 09:39:43 | BioPortfolio


The purpose of this study is to monitor the use of Altis Single Incision Sling (SIS) in a real world population and collect medical data on effectiveness and to monitor safety of Altis SIS at 12 and 36 months post device implantation in women with stress urinary incontinence.


This project has been launched after the introduction of Altis in Europe. This study is a multicenter prospective, observational (i.e. naturalistic) post-marketing clinical follow-up of women for who stress urinary incontinence was diagnosed and will be treated with Altis Single Incision Sling System. Therefore these patients will be asked to allow to use their clinical data and answer some questionnaires. The patients'data will be collected in routine clinical practice before, during and after surgery until 12 months. Then, questionnaires will be mailed to the participants annually during 2 additional years.

Involuntary loss of URINE, such as leaking of urine. It is a symptom of various underlying pathological processes. Major types of incontinence include URINARY URGE INCONTINENCE and URINARY STRESS INCONTINENCE.

Abnormal descent of a pelvic organ resulting in the protrusion of the organ beyond its normal anatomical confines. Symptoms often include vaginal discomfort, DYSPAREUNIA; URINARY STRESS INCONTINENCE; and FECAL INCONTINENCE.


Support structures, made from natural or synthetic materials, that are implanted below the URETHRA to treat URINARY STRESS INCONTINENCE.

Symptoms of disorders of the lower urinary tract including frequency, NOCTURIA; urgency, incomplete voiding, and URINARY INCONTINENCE.
