It is the first time that this
method has been used in Uruguay. Even though it has contra indications 5,6: Urolithiasis, vesicoureteral reflux, urinary tract malign pathology,
medical prosthesis with magnets and electronic components, patients in radiotherapy and
vesical instability, and knowing its possible complications described in the published
works 5,6 like the migration of
the siliconed sheath, the occlusion of the valve by sediment, irritation of the urinary
tract or at last, the malfunction of the prosthesis; we have a new method that could
constitute a new alternative treatment of great effectiveness for recurrent urinary
We emphasize that its main advantage is that it is not a surgical method, it is of easy
setting and extraction, included by the patient, in an ambulatory way, of easy handling
and with a rapid tolerance to the device.
Besides, this prosthesis has a great potential for geriatric patients and patients with
chronic invalidating pathologies treated at home, not only for asthetic interest but for
the cost-benefit relation.
The only inconvenience at the beginning of the treatment was the bad tolerance to the
prosthesis, having adapted rapidly. Up to this date the patient has had a good evolution,
being continent and having a complete and normal life. She has not presented any of the
complications described in the medical literature, having been a year since its placement.
