Surgical Treatment for Women with SUI

Bulking Agents

Injections Bulking Agents Women

If you suffer from SUI, your doctor may recommend treatment with bulking agents. These are injected into your urethral wall so that the urethra is compressed and can better resist the pressure of a full bladder. The bulking agent is injected as a liquid that then hardens into a spongy material to strengthen the urethral wall. Bulking agents can consist of synthetic materials or bovine collagen. The effect of the procedure will wear off with time.

When should I consider a bulking agent injection?

Injection with bulking agents is recommended if you are unfit for other treatments or you prefer to postpone a more invasive surgery.
