CODAN Blood management - Responsible handling of a valuable resource
Contrelle® Contrelle® Activgard is a new approach to solving the problem of stress incontinence.
The main cause of the problem is that the floor of the pelvis has weakened, often because of childbirth, changes during menopause or other factors inherent in the ageing process. When the pelvic floor slackens in this way, the bladder falls slightly and the angle of the bladder neck changes.
The result is that the associated musculature is no longer under full voluntary control during sudden stress.
The shape of Contrelle® Activgard is such that, when placed in the vagina, it lifts the bladder slightly, thereby correcting the angle of the bladder neck and preventing or reducing loss of urine, even during exertion. Just as important, the patient can urinate normally, without having to remove the Activgard..
