"This was the best surgery for me. There's no discomfort with the SPARC in place and I am dry. I feel like I'm 20 years younger!"*
SPARCTM Sling System
The SPARCTM Sling System treats female stress urinary incontinence by placing a narrow strip of material—called a "sling"—in your body to support the urethra. The SPARC system uses a suprapubic approach in which narrow sling carriers are passed from above the pubic bone to the vagina. The sling mesh then is attached to the carriers and pulled into place.
A self-fixating polypropylene sling cradles your urethra and gives it support during normal daily activities.
Most patients are continent immediately following the procedure and can resume normal, non-strenuous activities within a few days.
The SPARCTM provides many benefits:
- It is an outpatient treatment suitable for a wide variety of patients and can be performed using a minimally invasive approach.
- The sling can be loosened or tightened during and immediately after the procedure.
- Incisions in the abdomen and vagina are small.
- Patients generally recover quickly and experience immediate continence.
