MRS II System - FAQs

 

 

INDICATIONS

Why should doctors choose MRS System to treat male urinary incontinence?

Male stress urinary incontinence is due to a lack of support of the male urethra. The MRS will not only provide an extra support to the male urethra but surgeon will be able to re-adjust the sling lifetime, whenever needed, to reach continence. No other system allows the surgeon to easily re-adjust the sling urethral support level with the patient standing up and doing the efforts in order to properly adjust the system up to continence.

Prior to the intervention, visit the FDA Public Health Notification link:

Which patients are MRS Male System candidates?

Male Remeex System may be recommended to all patients with urinary stress incontinence. The results, as in all other treatment options, will be lower in patients that have been radiated.

Why a surgeon may choose to implant the MRS?

The Male Re-adjustable System (MRS) is an adjustable sub urethral sling that allows effective sub urethral support adjustment at any time during the patient’s lifetime. This adjustment control is an advantage over any other system. Apart from being adjustable, the MRS will maintain a physiological urination, and maintain the pressure transmission system, providing extra support to the urethra when needed (when coughing, sneezing, lifting…)

 

SURGERY

How many days of hospitalization will the patient need?

If the surgery has no complications, the patient may return home the same day or the day after. The patient will be adjusted normally 24 hours after the intervention at doctor’s office.

How long will be the surgery time?

The surgical procedure will last 45 to 60 minutes.

 

OUTCOMES

How does it work?

The MRS is an adjustable sling that will be tailored to every individual patient by adjusting its urethral support with the patient standing up and reproducing the efforts that drive him to incontinence. Apart from being adjustable, the MRS system is an excellent pressure transmission system, the varitensor is at the abdominal level, over the abdominal rectus muscles and will advance and transmit higher urethral support when coughing, sneezing, lifting, etc...

How will be patient’s post-surgical life?

Patients may have postoperative pain that can be treated with analgesics. If surgery has no additional complications, patients will be discharged the same day or 24 hours after surgery.

Even the patient properly adjusted will be continent after it; incontinence may appear some days or weeks the firs adjustment. If this is the case, the patient may be adjusted after the first month when he is fully recovered from surgery. The patient may have a period of adaptation to the system that may require additional readjustments to reach permanent and definitive full continence.

Are there some possible post-surgical complications?

All implants may have infection, rejection, or any other unexpected complication. The complication rate of the Remeex Male System is low and in line with any implantable system.

In addition, the Remeex Male System is very easy to withdraw in case of rejection in comparison with other incontinence alternatives.
