Bulkamid is a minimally invasive treatment for stress urinary incontinence. Bulkamid is urethral bulking agent comprising of a non-particulate homogenous hydrogel. It consists or 97.5% water and 2.5% polyacrylamide. The hydrogel is injected into the urethra to add volume to the tissue. This supports the closing mechanism of the urethra and provides better control of urine during coughing, laughing, exercise or change of position. The volume of the Bulkamid bleb is dependent on the hydrogel itself not a chronic host inflammatory response. It allows cellular integration through the gel, is resistant to degradation and migration. It is different to other bulking agents as it is predictable, controllable and precise urethral bulking due to volume of hydrogel.
Urethral Bulking offers a less invasive alternative to other Stress Urinary Incontinence procedures such as mid-urethral slings, with fewer complications and a quicker recovery time.
Bulkamid has treated over 80,000 women with stress urinary incontinence in 25 countries over 10 years. During that time few complications have been reported and there have been no long term complications. Download a Brochure or contact us by email or on 0800 800 234.
