Injectable biomaterials for the treatment of stress urinary incontinence: their potential and pitfalls as urethral bulking agents

Abstract

Injectable urethral bulking agents composed of synthetic and biological biomaterials are minimally invasive treatment options for stress urinary incontinence (SUI). The development of an ideal urethral bulking agent remains challenging because of clinical concerns over biocompatibility and durability. Herein, the mechanical and biological features of… (More)
