Urethral Bulking Agent (Coaptite® Injection)

Stress incontinence is a non-life threatening but bothersome leakage of urine. Surgical correction is general recommended for patients who are health enough for surgery and wish to have this problem corrected. For those patients with milder leakage or desiring a less invasive treatment option than a urethral sling, then Coaptite® injection may be recommended. It involves placement of a camera in the urethra while asleep and then using a needle to inject microspheres into the tissue to bulk up the urethra to prevent incontinence.
