UW Health urologists utilize collagen injections for some women who have stress incontinence without bladder neck support.
In this case, injection of a small volume of collagen into the region of the sphincter may improve urethral coaptation and prevent stress incontinence.
Urinary incontinence affects women of all ages - from young, otherwise healthy women to the elderly. The social effects of bladder disorders can be devastating to many women, sometimes leading to social isolation. Women who suffer from bladder problems may give up going to the gym because they experience urine leakage when they exercise; or they may feel uncomfortable going out for fear that they won't be able to quickly find a bathroom.
